I wasn't sure how much about this I wanted to say - but yesterday was a weird day. One of the weirdest that I've ever had. It wasn't bad. It wasn't good. It was just weird. Yesterday, I walked out the door of the company that I've been at for six years - and I'm not going back.
No. I don't have a new job. No. I don't know what I'm doing next. I am simultaneously excited and terrified. I haven't been happy where I'm at and have needed to look for a new job for a long time. It's time. Taking those steps out the door yesterday was the most relieving and the most terrifying thing that I have done in almost two years. (And to clarify, even though it would have been totally badass - I didn't just walk out - I've spent the last week wrapping things up and leaving notes for everyone still there. Like a responsible and professional adult.)
What now? I don't know exactly. It's the holidays so it will be nice to have a little bit of time off. Financially, I'll be just fine for a while (as long as I stay far, far away from Lululemon and Nordies). I'm excited to be able to take the time to look for something that I'll love. I know that these things don't happen overnight, but I've got some really great people guiding me where they can and I have no doubt with a little time that I'll find something great. (Do I sound confident? Because I'm really trying.)
So. Wish me luck. Life is too short to be at a job that is sucking the life out of you.
Inspirational quote for the day:
In other news. I have been cleared by my chiropractor and PT to compete in the Toys for Tots Throwdown next weekend. Yay! My back is doing much better and as long as I hold on to the pull up bar - I should be fine. I probably won't PR my deadlift - but we'll see. And my folks will be there to to see their first CrossFit competition - I'll probably have to keep my swearing to a minimum - although burpees usually make me sprew the F-word.
Til next time, y'all.
