Today is the one year anniversary of the day I quit my job. I can’t believe how the time has flown. I remember being so excited but because of normal office politics, I wasn’t allowed to tell anyone. Eventually, my chance arrived:
I was both excited and nervous. I had a letter prepared and sat down with my HR manager. Before I even started, she guessed why I was there. Apparently requesting an urgent meeting and sitting with an official looking letter in front of me were dead giveaways.
I haven’t regretted my decision one bit and while I miss some of the people, I don’t miss the work, the red tape, the meetings or the reporting one single bit. I have never before taken such control of my life and do you know what? It felt, and continues to feel, fantastic. This is MY life and I am going to live it how I want to live it…and there isn’t a report or meeting in sight.
Are you living the life YOU want to live?
