I did it

I quit. My last day working will be Feb. 19th. I didn't feel like any other present choice was the right choice except quiting. I feel like this is going to be a great thing. I quit. I left the job I thought I went to school for. I left a job that I have been at for over 10 yrs. I quit. Can you tell it still hasn't really sunk in yet.

Today I received an email from a family friend asking me to help her plan and make a website for her daughter's wedding. She wants to pay me for my services. She didn't know I was looking for work and just quit my job. There will be more opportunities for my family that will help us out. Welcome to my new Life.

Good luck my love, its always scary when one makes important changes in their life. I remember leaving my job voluntarily, years ago now, but I still remember how I felt.

You sound like you're going to do great and you'll have more time with your boy too, no?

I am so happy for you Farah. You will always do what is best for your family and maybe this is just the start of new beginnings. That said, I realize how scary it must be to leave something so familiar and comfortable. I'm always here if you need to vent or someone to listen.

When people say "having a baby changes everything," it really is true. It changes your priories, your goals, and what you thought you wanted/needed to be happy.

Welcome to the next chapter!

WOO HOO! You can do this! Hubby does a lot of "at home" stuff with his passion too and would love it if it became more full time for him. Go Farah!
