Day Job

Today I quit my day job.

I just realized it was time to go.  The job was no longer serving me and I was not serving my job.

I need to focus on the RV and get everything settled. I need to jump all in.

I’m terrified.

It is amazing how quickly one gets “comfortable” in a position. Even a bad job is still “safe.” Even if you cringe at the thought of interacting with several of your coworkers, it will still seem weird not to see them every day.  Kind of like a drunk Uncle at Christmas. Although, I won’t miss the guy who flashed me his junk. I will not miss the urge to hit him with my car every time I see him.

I did meet some really exceptional people and I will be forever grateful to know them. They will be in my life whether or not a job ties us together.

As much as I’m terrified to move on and go into the wilds of my dreams, I am so excited. I am starting.

The RV still has some work and I still have to move out of my room, but the largest anchor has been cut.  It’s sink or swim time.


I almost forgot. I hadn’t paid much attention to my horoscope for about a decade, however, a couple of weeks ago, I started looking them up out of boredom.  Here is what yesterday’s (8/15) said:


And the month’s overview, take a look at the 15th and 16th:


I’m not saying planning your life around a horoscope is a good idea. I’m just saying, sometimes, the universe tells you things or at the very least, points out what you really want. Kind of like flipping a coin to figure out a decision, you know what answer you want before it even comes down.
