2015 is the year where all was changed in my life. Other than a sex change (which is not in my cards, and I don’t even know why I threw that out there) the only major change remaining was my job.
So I did it.
My head is still spinning from that decision. It was a major one. First of all, I am the kind of person who remains loyal to a T to her employers. I stick it out, to the end. Always. I’m not the kind to just kick up and leave when I don’t get my way. And I’m not the kind who just runs off when more money is waved in her face. Ever.
This job change was a really hard – soul searching – gut wrenching decision. Where I’m currently at is like a family to me. They’ve carried me through so much hardship this past year. They’ve been patient, and wonderful. And needless to say that working from home has been such a blessing. “What can we do to make you stay?” my boss asked when I told him. “You’ve already done everything, and have been so wonderful.”
What have I traded this perfect job for?
I’ll be doing production and account management work for a digital marketing agency. It just happens to be that this is an agency where I tried and tried to score a job with when I first moved to San Diego.
I firmly believe it will also bring me a sense of family since I’m already pretty close to the 2 people I’ll be working with the most.
Major downside? Working from an office. “Don’t even try,” she told me with a smile when I hinted at the benefits of remote work for the agency.
It has been an emotional week. One which made me decide that I will not be making any more decisions until further notice. It’s simply too much.
I need to trust it was the right decision, and not doubt myself. It’s a total leap of faith…
