So um, did you read the title of this post? Because um, I did it!! Eek! Friday I put in my letter of resignation at work. Holy crap. I’m freaking the eff out. It is a really weird feeling right now. I don’t think it has completely set in.
I have been dreaming
about this for about 6 months now. Contemplating. Brainstorming. Wondering. Wishing. But mostly….procrastinating. I was putting it off. I kept coming up with excuses NOT to follow my dream. (ex: the timing at work wasn’t right; it’s slow season in my shop) This was mostly because I was scared of failing. Obviously.
So the day that I finally decided to put in my letter of resignation I was a wreck, drinking peppermint tea all day in hopes of soothing my nervous stomach. I knew that there was no turning back, no more excuses to keep me from an uncertain (but potentially awesome) future.
But I did it. I left work, I rolled the car windows down, I put on Mumford and Sons. I smiled. I, admittedly, even cried a little. I felt so many emotions at one time. There was happiness, excitement, disbelief, denial, fear, panic. But mostly….relief. The relief of getting out of something that was holding me back. Now I can fully pursue something that I love.
This is honestly beyond my dreams and I never imagined this would ever be possible up until about 6 months ago. I am so thankful to have the base of a business that is *hopefully* going to continue to grow. Now that I will be working on it full-time, I’m fully accepting that challenge.
So I just wanted to say…….I couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you for your overwhelming support for my blog, my shop, and this huge decision.
In appreciation (and celebration) please enjoy:
