On Mother’s Day, my daughter yelled, “I want a nerf gun” over and over again. I responded to her demand with my list of things I wanted: a clutter-free house, a job that I love.
After reaching “job that I love,” my son stopped me. “Haha, like that’s going to happen.” When I pressed him, he replied that no one has a job that they love.
It’s with this post that I share my plan to restore to my life and focus more on the things that bring me joy in this one life that I have to live.
I’ve resigned from my current position (effective 8/16/19).
What’s next? At least a two-month sabbatical in which I plan to focus on de-cluttering my house, writing more, attending community events, and finding clarity on how to create a more joyful life.
PS — Attending events like VMworld, Pure Accelerate, and Grace Hopper Celebration is possible in part because I’m trading away financial security to create space for opportunity Is it worth the risk?! Who freaking knows?!
