New Job = New Focus

Work.

Everything revolves around work.

When you eat. When you sleep. When you spend time with your kids and family. Work is the centre of it all.

This year – I’ve changed jobs…twice.

Back in February I left my my comfy, consistent and familiar marketing job because the office was being relocated to Kansas City.

I took this as an opportunity to start fresh – and I accepted a role as Director of Marketing at a new company in a new industry.

To be honest I knew it wasn’t for me, right from the start. 

There were many red flags along the way, but I chose to ignore them.

WHY? Because I was anxious and worried I wouldn’t find something else before the office closed for good.

Fear. Sneaky and ever so subtle was in the driver’s seat. 

7 months into the new job – I was seriously unhappy and I knew something had to change.

I was letting work control everything – when I could feel happy, when I could relax, when I could enjoy life…

But, changing jobs so quickly was a terrifying thought. I mean – what would people think? She’s changing jobs again…

STOP. I had to tell myself to STOP.

# 1 – Who cares what people think (I have to actively tell myself this or I forget).

#2 – My husband and kids deserve a happy Mom.

#3 – I have 1 life – and I owe it to myself to live it my way.

#4 – Work revolves around everything – I want to enjoy the work I’m doing especially because it plays such a strong part in my life.

#5 – I was blessed with a NEW work opportunity that just felt right. Time to listen to my GUT.

So, I quit. 

Even typing the word QUIT is hard for me…

The process wasn’t easy and my emotions were all over the place.

However, I had to take control and put myself first.

And for me, that resonates in everything else I do too especially with my health and fitness.

Me first.

When I put me first – everyone benefits especially my family.
