Learning To Let Go
September 7, 2014
By David Martin
I graduated college and started my career in wealth management. I was in my mid-twenties and had no professional work experience, so I went to work with my father as his assistant. I had no money and my father didn’t want to give me anymore! 25 years of giving me money, he was done. Off the couch I went to PaineWebber in Stamford, Connecticut. Who new it would be 20 ½ years latter and I would be wondering… what happened to my life? Where did it go?
Now what? I just merged my wealth management firm with another firm to free me up to persue my journey. What’s next for me – is it comedy, adventures, marriage, family, children, rehab? Who knows. All I know is I am stocked up with tasty IPAs (Indian Pale Ales)! I’m 46, single with a passion for performing comedy and taking groups of people on really awesome adventures.
This story I am telling is how I embrace letting go and trusting that the universe has an exciting new path for me to hike down. Time to lower any expectations I may have of the future while focusing on what truly brings me more happiness. The next chapter is in the making while I finish the last chapter.
I will bring everything I’ve learned forward in a positive light for there is so much opportunity right on the immediate horizon.
