Every now and again I rewatch my favourite TED Talks not only so I can be inspired once again but to remind myself how far I’ve come. It’s been almost two years since I decided to quit my job to throw it all to the wind. I didn’t know where I was going or what I’d be doing down the road, but I knew I had to take this risk so I could work toward a more fulfilling life.
I’m so grateful that I had the courage to take that step back then, because look where I am now! I wake up every day completely happy and content with myself and my place in the world. I am completely satisfied with my life and wouldn’t change anything about it (except, of course, that I currently can’t be with my boyfriend 24/7, but we’ll be together soon enough).
These are the TED Talks that motivated me to make a change. I hope they inspire you as well. I’ve written about a few of these previously so I included the related blog post after the video title.
