It's Done

Quick note as I have loads to do today. I handed in my departure notification letter yesterday. It's over. I will be flying by the seat of my pants starting July 1st.

The last meeting again, wasn't enough to make me want to stay. They wanted to keep dragging it on with promises and options but too vague to sink teeth into.

When I went over my exit plan, they went along but didn't really believe I meant it until I brought up my timeline. That's when they jumped.

I got an offer to "buy more time" at a slightly higher rent but not as high as it was supposed to be starting July 1st until we figure this out... no thank you.

So this is it. I am putting my money where my mouth it. I've had my panic moments and I've had to remind myself that I already know how to do the hardest part -- my job. I can learn the administrative stuff.

    Congrats.

    I'm sure that while there are many emotions you're now experiencing, given time you will look back and say it was one of the best moves of your life.

    It will be nice to have control over your work destiny (and thus spilled over into your personal life) than be subject to the actions of others.

    Let the new journey into uncharted waters begin and may you become a better and stronger individual as a result.

    Good luck and again Congratulations on your move.
