Dani_Suave's Journal, 30 March 2012

Last day! Still a little unsure about the future but I'm definitely sure that I'm not supposed to stay here. I'm leaving on good terms and would be welcomed back.... but I won't be coming back.

Delivered another sling today and handed out a few more order forms :) why not promote my business from my current position? :):):)

This afternoon is going to be so full. I'd set a dr appt this afternoon way before I gave my notice so its only a half day at work. After my dr appt I have to hit up DHS about my daycare assistance since its employment related and I'm unemployed so... Then I need to go to the college and see about my financial aid status. Then if I'm lucky I'll go donate plasma. But tomorrow is completely open!

I'm thinking more and more that I need to be running. I've allowed the cold and rain to excuse my inactivity but considering its Oregon it seems to me I need to just suck it up. So what if I get soaked? I'll have to take a shower when I get home anyway right? *brrr*

Anyway, thats my neck of the woods. Hows everybody else? I won't have time today to go through journals but will try to get on it tomorrow.

Happy Friday!

I am glad you are getting out of there. When I was on the fence about leaving my job at the post office, I asked my mom for advice. She told me that you can't put a price on happiness and sometimes making less money is worth a lot more. She was right. Some said I was crazy to leave a union job that paid exceptionally well, but I was getting sick to my stomach every day just at the thought of going to work. I won't lie. Getting another job proved to be more difficult than I thought and I did a 2 year stint at Walmart that I hated. BUT, now I have changed careers and have the only job that I have ever looked forward to every day. I am looking into going to college in order to continue advancing in the company. Sometimes taking that leap of faith to save your sanity is the best thing you can do for yourself!

Awesome story, than you for sharing! I texted my mom this morning and told her I feel insane for leaving a stable paycheck right now but my sanity is more in danger from staying than leaving at this point. Run away!

She is right!! I was in a similar boat a few years ago. I didn't jump ship from the company, but the department, and have been closer to home, now WORKING from home, in a much better position, as well as financially. Though I'm not entirely thrilled with my job, I don't DREAD it, I'm making a positive impact, and I'm retaining my sanity. You'll find your path. Now, get thy butt on a treadmill!!! Hugs from one Dani to another...
