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