I quit my day job.
For years I’ve carried the excuse that if I only had more time, I would be able to pursue my dream of owning a local yarn store, or making it big in the world of hand dyed yarn.
So, I looked at my bank account and realized that I had a small runway – a really small runway.
I didn’t like the work I was doing in the “real” world so I quit. Just like that I pulled the trigger and shot that sucker dead.
and then I went home and started applying for more JOBS.
But today (almost two weeks later) I realized that this is what I wanted. All of those times that I wished I would get laid off, or fired, so I would be forced to make it or break it – here it is. Staring at me.
Ok – so I am usually a planner – though I must admit I did a crappy job at that this time – so I am writing out my list of things to do. Things to get my Etsy shop moving. Things that I need to run a business. Research and Do. Research and Do.
But I still applied for some jobs this morning – just in case (and because I’m a Virgo)……
Feelin’ anxiously optimistic.
