Yesterday was my last day off whilst still employed by the company I have worked for since I graduated university. Usually, the thought of not having a consistent income would make me feel incredibly nervous and anxious, but I actually feel at peace and looking forward to what the future holds.
I have worked at my current job for just over two years and have experienced many ups and downs. I feel excited to be able to cut ties with the company and focus on what it is I really want to achieve in life. Throughout my time working for the company I constantly found I was thinking about other ideas and career paths I could pursue. I plan on writing another post in which you can read my reasons why I decided to quit my job without another lined up and what I plan to do once I have finished working my notice period.
If you are reading this because you have felt the same about your job I would suggest you think about what it is that you don’t like about your role and weigh up the pros and cons. Don’t forget to think about yourself, are you genuinely happy in life? If the answer is no I would definitely recommend looking into realistic options. Life is far too short not to be happy and be on a path that will not fulfil your personal goals.
Overall I am excited at the thought of freedom and future prospects. I will now have time to learn new skills which will enable me to pursue new opportunities. I love knowing that the possibilities are endless and if I work hard and put my all into something I can achieve my personal goals. During the past two weeks I have really been able to reflect on what has made me so unhappy in my current situation, things I want to avoid in future and things I seek to obtain and the goals in which I would like to accomplish.
