Episode 38: I Quit My Job

I Quit!

Today is my last day at my regular 9-5. 30 days ago I crafted and sent my letter of resignation to my leadership at 5:30a in the morning. The moment I pressed "Send" I felt a load lift off my shoulders. I was now in control of my time. I could now take care of my family in a matter that suits my core values of freedom and autonomy. I may now develop my business and set my own financial ceiling as I see fit. 

Though this month has come with a lot of joy, it has also come with a lot of lessons. 

Trust that God will catch me. I wasn't financially prepared to make the leap. When I quit my job it was truly a leap of faith. My heart, soul, and spirit shouted yes. So I have to continue to trust that God will not leave us hungry, homeless, or without transportation. I take my faith further. I believe that because my faith is the size of a mustard seed, he will give me opportunities to grow and develop so I may fulfill my purpose. 

Remember my why. In my moments of doubt, I remember why I lept in the first place. 
  • I was unhappy with my job. I'm not a human services person, though I have a heart for service. It was difficult for me to help the community when many, not all, of the community, didn't want a massive change. They just want to survive. I understood their mindset, but I found it hard to accept. 
  • My daughter needed me more. Without going into details, I needed to be physically present for my daughter during the day. Which required me to use almost all of my PTO. I felt like I had to ask permission to care of my family and that didn't work for me. 
  • My health was failing. Due to the stress of juggling it all, my health was failing. I can't help my family if I am ill.
  • My business needed me. This is a tiny piece of the whole picture, but it is apart of the picture. Running a business on nights and weekends was tough. It was growing marginally, but not at the rate that would allow me to solely benefit from it anytime soon. I am 41. I do not intend to wait until my 70's before I feel the fruits of my labor.

"Work" takes on a whole other meaning. I have a solid work ethic. I'm pretty focused. But being on my own means I'll have to be more resourceful, creative, and diligent. I do not have the comfort of a 9-5. I eat what I kill, and if I don't kill anything, I don't eat. PERIOD. That means I have to make all of my actions count. That means that I have to make my investments matter. That means that it's time to bust up the walls of my comfort zone and rebuild them in a bigger, more plentiful location. 


At the end of the day, this leap was what I needed to be a better wife and mother for my family, a better person to myself. 

Did I follow the rules of ensuring I had 6 months of the mortgage in the bank, 12 months of savings put away, or 8 high-level clients waiting in the wings? Nope!

What I did, and so many find themselves having to do, is make an unpopular and ill-advised choice for the greater good. 

I quit my job and today is my last day. I have faith that my family and my life will be forever changed for the better.
