I woke up today with a plan. And not that I don’t have a plan everyday when I wake up, but today is a tad bit different. You see this past Friday I was let go from my job. Yes, I was fired! It was unexpected and caught me off guard, but not at all painful. Some people cry, worry all sorts of things. I felt a weight lifted and I was actually kind of excited. It could also be that it was the weekend and I had a barbecue festival to attend the next day, but I was good. I was miserable at my job, because it was just that, a job. It wasn’t a career choice, it wasn’t going to be a place of retirement, it was simply a job. A job that I was doing and sucking every bit of life out of me. It’s not that it was necessarily a bad place to work, but it wasn’t for me. There was no reason in the world why I should have stayed there as long as I did, but I did. I had already been working on things to secure my exit, had even thought about quitting this week. I dreaded going there daily because it just wasn’t what I wanted to be doing, and I needed to be doing something that I loved . I was longing to be fulfilled, but continued to hinder myself from having that. Well here I am today, ready to start on that road. I don’t know what the future holds, I don’t know the exact direction I’m heading, but I’m here, eager and ready!
