In all my years of working a 9 to 5 it has been very evident that I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit. Not just the urge to be in charge of something but the desire to go through the process of growing something of my own, watching it flourish and reaping the benefits of doing what I love.
However, with my recent decision to sit out of the workforce for the next year in an effort to make that happen, this past month has been a bit of an adjustment.
Having the freedom to come and go as I please is absolutely wonderful and just what I’ve always wanted but I never realized how much of myself was actually connected to getting up at the crack of dawn and going to work everyday. The simple feeling of doing something productive with myself as far as holding down a job is concerned, seeing as how this is the first time I have not worked since I was sixteen years old.
To fight the feelings of being less than productive, I have managed to keep myself rather busy since my last day of work and am anxiously awaiting the start date of my summer classes. Once that is in effect, it means that I will be ACTIVELY working on achieving my goals and the adjustment phase of being unemployed will be complete!
