If You Are Not Taking A Chance
It has been quite sometime since I have sat down to truly blog. Every time that I tried in the last several months, I couldn't get my fingers to type out anything that would make a lot of sense to readers. Or even to myself. Partly because I was struggling to have a voice.
Quite a bit has changed since my last post. Actually everything has changed since the last time I made a public post. And when I say everything, it is not an exaggeration.
The 25th of July marked being at a new job for a month. I cannot believe it has already been that long. And though I cannot express how much I needed the change from my last job, I am still a bit tender hearted over being away from a group of people who I had grown to love over the last 8years. They were/are like family to me.
Then why did I leave? That is the million dollar question, and what I keep reminding myself during these hard weeks. I was very honest with my former boss over the course of my three week notice. I started working at my former job at 19. I was young. Over the course of 8 years I really changed and ultimately felt like a square peg in a round hole. I made the decision to leave working at the church because I knew I was no longer meant to be there. I could go into specific details but it ultimately doesn't matter because I took the leap that I needed to to bring me to my new job.
It has been scary. There have been times I thought, what the hell am I doing?! However, in the last 25+ I have never been happier within my personal life outside of work. And that is what matters.
I encourage anyone who is considering making a change. Taking that leap of faith. Running without turning back. Do it. Sit down, think of what you want and make it happen because you are the only one who can truly make yourself happy.
