Two months ago I found out that my job would be doing a layoff as a result of outsourcing and my last day would be this past Friday. I was not discouraged when I received this news because while I was thankful for the job, I was also BEYOND miserable there.
I entered into the finance industry upon leaving my position as a Flight Attendant once I found out I was expecting my first-born and worked at my most recent employer for the past five years out of sheer comfort. It provided a source of consistent income and looked good on my resume but by no means was it what I really wanted to be doing in life.
However, this opportunity has provided me with just the push I needed to get out of my comfort zone and seriously chase the dream I’ve always wanted. With that being said, I plan to take the next year off, finish my degree, do some traveling and focus on my writing more seriously.
This will be my first time without a job since I was 16yrs old so I will definitely have to adjust to the lack of a set schedule but I am truly excited about this fresh start and hope to make the absolute best of it.
Cheers to new beginnings!
