Advice in Preparing to Quit Your Job & Be FUNemployed

Being FUNemployed is such a sacred space that has allowed me to truly bear witness to the person that I AM. It was such an evolutionary and revolutionary period in my life. I truly gleaned the divine within my Self. This sacred space accelerated my spiritual growth. I wish this blessing upon everyone. Even if it is just a moment to pause from the insanity that work has become. If you are contemplating making this cataclysmic shift in your life, here are some tips when preparing to transition into being FUNemployed:

FUNemployed vs. Unemployed

A word of CAUTION: FUNemployment is not for the faint of heart. If you don’t have the balls to gamble big- don’t even do it. Stay chained to your desk and save yourself the trouble. Don’t even consider it. If you are reading this so that you can draft up a cost-benefit analysis- just run away now. Being FUNemployed is not for you. With that in mind, hopefully I didn’t lose all of you, I give you the difference between being FUNemployed vs Unemployed:

I Am FREE

I move, I be, I do- all with ease.

I have been meditating on freedom and movement. Moving not just the body, but the locality of it, being moved and being able to communicate (how that in and of itself travels through the interwebs sometimes landing & sometimes just floating in the ether waiting to be discovered and unlocked).

Your Freedom, Happiness & Self Love are Acts of REBELLION

“F*CK IT!” is part mantra and part reminder to just simply let it all go. Let go of the anxiety. Let go of the weight of perfection. Let go of all the things that are holding you back. Let go of the fear of stepping courageously into your power. Constantly remind yourself- “Step with confidence. You are guided. You are loved. Love made you.”

The most beautiful thing is to see someone who is not governed by their fears. Who instead of contracting because of the “should have”‘s and expectations is able to expand and touch the divine- that place within us that is limitless and inspired.

Breakdown vs. Spiritual Awakening

Sometimes, I feel as if perhaps I have gone crazy. I sometimes question my actions and intentions. I find myself hesitant to even write on this blog because I doubt I am living up to my ideals- am I dreaming big enough? Am I honestly working towards a better me? Am I on the correct path?


I am not supposed to be here. I have no idea why I am here. I have no idea why I write. I just know that I must. I know that I am emotionally sensitive with moments of feeling a bit down. My blogs are the words that I wished I could read to lift me up. These entries are the advice that I would give a friend (and that I desperately need for myself). I know that when I am stricken by inspiration – my words fly off this small little blog  and into the interweb/universe. Once I write, the words are no longer mine- I am at the mercy of the universe. I hope you get something out of it. I don’t want to just work for a paycheck. I do not want to wish five days away in order to reach the weekend. My life is slower paced now. I have yet to master discipline but I do not care. I do a whole bunch of nothing sitting at home and I LOVE it. These few months I have taken off have been nothing more than a miracle. My house is still  a work in progress and I still struggle to get things done and execute but the funny thing is that I am at utter peace. There is a joy that rises out of the peace and doing nothing. I am the boss of me. It’s incredible to see how far I have come.

I find myself not wanting to write about my experiences because I am too busy living and connecting with my spiritual self. A few thoughts:

1. “I don’t want to numb my vulnerability. The way to live is through vulnerability and to stop controlling and predicting…” -Brene Brown It’s no secret that I have had periods where I have been medicated (hello xanax! Chlonopin! Prozac!). Chlonopin is a god send when you think you are ten seconds away from having a heart attack- but I don’t want to live by numbing myself. That is not living. All those medications soon enough take away your joy. Just like you can no longer panic – your happiness also becomes diminished. Life loses it’s beauty and you are left sedated. 

2. “I am interested in some messy topics but I want to be able to make them not messy. I want to understand them. I want to hack into these things that I know are important and I want to out the code and lay it out for the world to see.” – Brene Brown I blog because it is my therapy. This is where I work out my stuff. I am trying to “make my mess my message”. I am working out my life on this forum to keep a record of the crazy and so that you can learn or be entertained it all. I stand before you humbled by life but first and foremost grateful. I am perfectly flawed and amazed by every day that is gifted to me.
3. “The amount of drama that you have created in your life is the amount of spiritual growth you are willing to undergo in one lifetime.” -Colin Tipping All of it – the depression, the anxiety, the not being able to cope is self made. I am responsible for creating all that is my situation. I created my present moment and I continue to create every future moment. I threw my entire life into upheaval. I got rid of a boyfriend, a roommate, two jobs… I will rebuild bigger and better once I feel like it. Life is awesome and I have choice. I created this tsunami because big rewards are only possible after big gambles.

4. “You have never made one mistake in your life.” -Colin Tipping This is such a beautiful thought. All your life- everything that you perceive as good/bad/evil/bad luck/synchronicity/sad moments/happy moments- are NOT mistakes. You are living your life ON PURPOSE and everything is unfolding as it should on divine timing. It seems somewhat cruel to say that even when bad things happen- there are still lessons to be learned. Even that which we perceive as “mistakes” or a set back are not. If you continue to make the same “mistakes” and you begin to see patterns in your life- know that this is coming up once again because it will not be released until you heal this particular situation.

It’s funny that the moment I walked away from finance I felt not only at peace but, most importantly, healed. Now I have the whole summer to detox, contemplate, meditate, chill, relax, be silly, vacation, smile, laugh, walk, go on adventures, grow stronger… Life is beautiful once again.

“Embrace the glorious mess you are” -Elizabeth Gilbert
