I thought I would begin in the right now and then explain how I got here. I just left a fairly well paying career that did not suit me. As a middle aged woman, that is probably not a choice many would have made. People get through and manage in careers that they don’t like, but I am not like everyone. This career was draining, and life-taking. I found very little personal satisfaction in it and, toward the end, it was nearly hard to endure. Back in December I decided I needed to change and set my sights on getting out in June and moving away from the place I had been living for 15 years so that I could move home to be closer to family. I could then start a new career.
Now, as I sit jobless I have my doubts, of course. What the hell did I do quitting my job? But when I think about continuing on with it, I know I made the right choice. It just wasn’t the right career for me. My goal is to be an entrepreneur and become my own boss. Going into the field of helping people with healing through energy work and Reiki, along with nutrition and health coaching has become my passion.
So, I begin my journey this week with no job and a house for sale that absolutely has to sell in order for me to pay for a new place to live. I love my house, but it was time to move on. I have so many good memories there. (More on the house later.) I fear that I will have trouble selling it in a timely way for the money I am asking. Everyone assured me that it would sell quickly. It has only been on the market for 4 days, but worry is setting in (I get the worry gene from my mom). I read about 3 review after people saw the place and they were all saying it needed too much updating. Yes, my house needs updating, but it has so many wonderful features. I am envisioning a couple or single person who sees its potential and looks forward to molding it to suit them.
Changes are many in my life right now. Trying to stay positive, think optimistically, and feel confident I made the right choice. Life is too short to be miserable.
