On June 3 I officially said goodbye to the job and career I had held for twelve years. I have worked at Goodwill since I was 18 years old.
For the last year or so I’ve gone back and forth with my decision to stay or leave, however I started off this year knowing that I would be saying goodbye. I just knew that my life was getting ready to take a different turn and I had to accept the path that was being laid out for me.
I started off this year thinking about how I once had a dream of writing my book and sharing my story and maybe even doing some motivational speaking. I realized that I had let that dream slip away and knew the time is now for me to take the risk and leap of faith and go after that dream.
So I am taking some time for myself and figuring things out. I do not know where my life is headed but for the first time in a long time I am excited to start a new chapter. I am working towards a happier me.
Writing has always been my goal. I’ve been told I write well but for me when it comes to talking about my life and sharing my story I have that excitement and joy because I know I’m teaching others and that is when my positive attitude really shines.
This year has already had so many changes but I knew from the beginning that my life was on route to much greater things…even if I couldn’t see it yet. So here is to the next few months and me doing what I was always meant to do!
