I stepped off the cliff and quit my job Wednesday. It’s the first major decision I’ve made that I didn’t second guess.
I’m all in.
It’s a risk, but I took it. Two weeks to go at my current job and a great 15-year chapter of my life closes.
After I told some of my work friends, it’s been a draining experience. First, telling them was hard. Then hearing the very nice things they had to say about me – well, some tears and choking up.
The part that surprised me most was the respect people had for me jumping ship at this stage in my life to improve my skills and try something new. It caught me off guard. I work for a great company with fantastic people, but it’s full of processes to be followed and is rigid. For some, I believe they would like to escape and do something else too.
Again, I’m grateful for my luck in life.
So that’s it for tonight. I’m tired because I haven’t been sleeping well. The stress of this situation keeps me up late and wakes me up early.
I am so lucky. Thank you, Universe, for my good fortune.
