I have had a change in my plans over the past week or so – a very good change! Last weekend I made the decision to go ahead and leave my job so that I can focus my full attention to building my online businesses. My goal was to first completely replace my salary (and then some!), but the frustration of staying in a job that I no longer enjoyed and the great desire to be self-employed won out after a really bad week.
I am a strong believer in always maintaining a positive attitude and I know that I have the ability to create whatever I desire in my life. I have been unhappy in my job for a while now and I tried so hard to maintain a positive attitude and make the best of things. I finally decided that all of the drama and negativity I was experiencing was a great big SIGN that it was time to go! Because I have worked so many years at remaining positive and happy, drama and negativity are not things that I normally have to experience. I think that they are such a big difference from where I try to live, that it really bothered me. I kept thinking that if I could just remain positive and happy everything would be fine. I think it was a sign – or a kick in the you-know-what to just do what I want to do already. You know what? Ever since I made the decision, I have had total peace and I am so happy and excited. Here is my other sign – since I have resigned from my job – my web site earnings have been more than my take home pay from my job!
So in these uncertain economic times, I am thriving and I feel like the weight of the world has been lifted off of my shoulders. Now I will have the freedom I crave to live my life on my own terms and I will have the time to do what I really want to do – which is work on my sites. I am so grateful to have my growing and thriving online businesses to become my life’s work. I am also grateful that because I chose nursing as my first career, I can always get a decent job – which makes it much easier to take this leap of faith!
Wish me luck! I am working out a 4 week notice and have 3 weeks left! My last day is on my birthday.
