Today I quit my job, and decided to actually do what I want with my life, career wise. I've been working at jobs just for the paycheck, not because I enjoy it. I thought this new job would be awesome...awesome pay, better hours, the list goes on...but it was all a lie. All the money in the world isn't worth the stress and negative environment I was in.
So I am looking into finishing up my school stuff, getting a teaching job, possibly subbing, and working somewhere part time. Getting back to me and away from the feeling that I need to be making more money.
Another thing I plan to get back in to is my art and crafty stuff. I haven't done an art show in a couple years now b/c of my job. I gave it up b/c there was never enough time. I used to have an etsy store and shut that down. So perhaps soon, I will re-open or do an art show. Now I have all the time I need to focus on the things in life that make me happy.
I know it will be difficult, and some lifestyle changes will need to be made (can we say bye bye Starbucks?!) but things have a way of working out in the end and I believe that. I have to trust that I set myself on the right path. So I am letting go of all the stress and anger, and I'm ready to start living for myself and enjoy the journey.
What are you doing with your life?
