I’ve been umming and ahhing for some time now about leaving my job, but without having another job to go to it feels slightly odd and a little scary.
It all really came to a head just before Christmas when I just realised I don’t think that I can work here anymore, it just feels like a disaster waiting to implode!
So this week I took the plunge and just handed in my notice. It was a little bit like an out of body experience. Did I really know what I was doing or where I’m going now?
I don’t know what’s going to happen to me, where I’ll work or how my freelance consultancy will do. But I do know that I have the headspace to actually think about it and stop worrying about being ‘found out’ that I have a business on the side.
It’s refreshing and a little exciting. It’s also liberating as I don’t have to worry about work politics or the work that I am doing there. I’m absolutely positive that there will be other things to worry about when owning your own business. But I think I’m ready for the challenge.
I learned recently that life is about being happy and doing what you love. Sometimes it’s nice to know you can follow your dream. whether it works or not at this stage, I’m not too worried about it – I just want to give it a try.
