Today I was tired and mentally exhausted so I visited this blog called ‘So Many Places’ and one of the post I read was titled ‘Why I'm Quitting My Job to Travel’. It was a very interesting read; I was amazed that someone I did not know, with a different background could have a similar deep seeded unhappiness due to the place of employ. Basically she made the dream a reality by quitting her job and traveling the world with her husband. Amazing right!
Such a big leap of faith is not for everyone and even rarer than that the possibilities both spouses are on the same page...wow! Will I ever have the confidence in self needed or faith to finally leave my job? I think I do, but only time will tell if I will really follow through with such a major step
This article resonated with me for several reasons but mainly because I am currently employed full-time and the discontent I feel at times overwhelm me. Okay it's not so much that I abhor my job but more so that I am disappointed in myself for not living all my potential. Everyday I walk into that office it's almost like a part of my dream and a part of me dies for I am faced with the constant reality that I am living a life less than my worth…
Making the move...
No I don’t know Kim’s situation or how she was able to go forward with this move and be successful. Correction I do know a little of how she and her husband was able to transition into that decision; according to her post they sold everything the car, the house, the furniture, the dog...I’m just kidding not the dog ;-) but you get the drift. But that is obviously not an option for me for I worked extremely hard to get this house, I need my car, and I barely have enough furniture to fill my house let alone some to sell.
I know i need to a plan and have been told several times that "NEVER leave a job when you don’t have income coming in", but I just want (scratch that) need to do it and find my way as I go. I honestly feel that if I did not have that hindering crutch of a job I would hit the pavement hard...then again I don’t really know. When I am excited I have all kind of ideas but when those bill starts arriving in the mail it becomes a different story
I Don’t Know, But I Do...I do, But I Don’t! The computer can’t be my resting place forever I will have to eventually put my talk to action but I get scared, for every negative 'what if' bombards me seemingly to know end
Until next time...Be Inspired2prosper
This is my life unimpeded, unafraid and unashamed, on a journey from impoverishment to prosperity in every area!
