Oh my… I’ve really gone and done it this time. I legit quit my job. I started this job with so much damn hope, excitement, enthusiasm. I remember just a month ago I posted on Facebook “I can’t remember the last time I was disappointed to have a day off, so grateful”. Well there’s only one thing I can really say to that and it’s L.O.L.
The problem with me you see is I’m great at motivating people to live their dreams, reach for the stars, do what makes you happy and passionate but do you think I ever take my own dang advice?
Yes the job made me happy at first. But then the workload pilled on… then more workload pilled on and it escalated and escalated where I literally never had a day off because my days off were the team staff meeting days and you’re always expected to check you e-mails just in case there is problems with your primary clients and sometimes you fill a report out wrong or it’s denied and it just.. never.. ended.
It was not my expectation for this job to consume my entire life as I have soooo any other dreams and goals so I asked myself what the hell am I doing? I wrote a freakin book about living your life passions so why am I not taking my own advice?
So I quit. But I didn’t fail because failing is never trying to begin with. I will never stop hunting for the job that gets me excited at the beginning of each day and that’s a promise I made to myself.
I love being a nurse it’s true. I am also damn good at being a nurse and very well educated. But I also love fitness, I love training, I love nutrition and I want to help people get healthy and stay healthy and that is my mission and purpose. I will find a way to do this and it’s going to take time, tears, frustration, and hard work because no road leading to anything good is perfectly paved.
We have to make mistakes, we have to ride those learning curves, but more importantly we have to keep going when we hit turmoil.
From now on I am listening to my own advice! I hope you all feel empowered and join me in reaching for the stars! If you don’t know where to start my book is coming out in a few short weeks. Start there:)
