New year, new me. We all know people who say that saying every single year. But are they actually putting in the work to improve themselves?
The best decision I've made in 2017 was putting in my 2 weeks notice early in December. It was a job that was draining the life out of me. The field of work that I'm involved with should be fun and rewarding. NO ONE, no matter who you are or your job title, deserves to be treated in any way or fashion as if you don't matter.
When you do nothing but go above and beyond your job description and everything is unappreciated and overlooked, you start to wonder if it is even worth it. I'm going through so much trouble and wasted time. And for what? Your personal/business gain? My happiness is worth far more than what you THINK of me.
Needless to say, they weren't too thrilled to learn of my resignation. In fact, out of spite, they even let me go. Which I was okay with. I was smart and already had my next place of employment to fall back on. I only planned to stay longer as a nice gesture.
But, with that time off, I had the luxury to travel. For nearly the whole month of December, I was all over the United States. I traveled to Colorado, Florida, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.
It felt so good to be free with no pressure on your shoulders from such a demanding and one-sided job.
January I started a fresh new place of employment. I already sense the positive vibes, respect, and overall good energy that I can see myself associated with.
wish you much success in 2018.
