2016 will be the year of my transformation. After decades of being a working mother, beginning April 1st, I will officially be without an 8-5 job. I made the decision to leave my highly paid, highly visible job to concentrate on the things that make me happy. What those things are, I guess I will find out. This past year I found myself in a job that took every ounce of my being to get through the day. Was the job over my head, no. I did I love what I was doing, yes.
However there were other factors that made each day a battle. I would drive the 1/2 hour to work and either want to cry or throw up the entire way. I kept asking myself, is this how the last five or six years of my career is going to be like? Because I want this blog to be positive and uplifting I won’t delve into all the “other factors” that helped me make the decision to leave, the most important thing is that I left and that I made the decision to be happy. I realized that being this miserable at any age is unacceptable. Thank goodness my wonderful family is supportive and are just excited as I am to see where this transformation takes me. Obviously more to come!
