So my last day at my job is Friday. I’ve had the draft of this post in my dashboard for three weeks, that’s how much notice I gave. My replacement starts today after lunch.
I didn’t intend to keep it a secret for so long, but I wanted to wait to tell the internet until the office hired my replacement and told the agents. I mostly just wanted to slip away quietly on a holiday weekend and never come back. It’s a personal decision and I didn’t want to get trapped in a conference room with cupcakes and goodbyes.
There might be more to say at some point, but basically I need a new outlook. I want a career, not a job. Maybe taking a page out of Sophie’s book and looking at my world upside down will be refreshing. Leaving this position without having another job absolutely terrifies me. But at this point I’ve pretty much got to bet on myself and trust that there is more out there for me.
A lot of the past year and a half has been exploration and learning for me. It’s time for me to give more dedication and energy to some of my freelance interests. Do I want to freelance full time? No, I like being a part of a team. I like going to work everyday. I excel at being a really solid component of a greater whole. I am actively looking for a new job, and am excited to have the emotional energy to do so. Attitude is everything.
