I'm doing something I never thought I would: looking for full-time employment.

As someone who has freelanced full-time since graduating, I thought I was past the point of no return. After all, creating my own schedule and working from wherever I want have both become non-negotiable perks.

Regardless, I need a little more stability.

Thanks to a series of unfortunate events, I'm in survival mode.

Because of this, I'm considering giving up complete freedom to do what's necessary.

I know this sounds dramatic, but I've always valued my time over anything else in this world.

If you stop and think, it's really the only nonrenewable resource we have.

The thing is, by potentially getting a full-time job, I might be able to be more intentional with the time I have left each day.

Instead of worrying about where my next client will come from, I can focus more on creating the kind of life I've always wanted.

This means more quality time with the people (and puppy) I care about, more time writing and sharing my thoughts, and more time investing in myself and others whom I believe in.
