I've been doing a lot of artwork lately about change without even realizing it. All of my quotes and fortunes have a familiar ring to them.
I didn't dawn on me that I was doing it until I started editing photos for my blog. It's funny how your subconscious works, isn't it?
For those of you that aren't on my Facebook, I recently gave notice of resignation to my job of almost ten years. The last couple of years there have been extremely hard for me. Not because of the job itself but because I think I may have outgrown it. As you get older your priorities simply change.
As I was the primary earner, for years I have felt trapped at my job by the money. I can't begin to tell you how much stress feeling trapped puts on you mentally and physically. Back in October when I had to go to the ER, things got put into perspective for me.
We started focusing hard core on paying off our bills so I could take a job more tailored to my interests. As a result, I'm able to take a couple of months off to (finally!) finish off my paralegal classes and then look for a part time job.
I'm scared that I will fall on my face and take Cory down with me but I think if I don't move forward with this now I never will. I feel we've prepared as much as we can and it's time to jump.
I'll be waiting a couple of months and then I will be looking for a part time job. In the mean time I plan on taking care of my home and figuring out our new finances.
Wish me luck!
What are your thoughts? Have you taken a jump like this one?
