A month before the end of the year I made a simple list of the goals I wanted to achieve for 2019. When I created this list I was dealing with a very hard decision. Quitting my job of the last 5 years. After a lot of prayer, I took the leap to leave behind a job that made me depressed each and every day. Even though I received conformation from God to move I was still a nervous wreck. I think we all worry about the unknown because it is exactly that the unknown. Moving into new territory is scary! I know I am the type of person who likes to be in control and also have a vision before I make a big decision. However, when it came to this decision I took the pressure off myself and placed in Gods hands.
January 7th I took a leave from Chrysler. I didn’t care about the money I would be missing out on. All I was thinking about was first not waking up at 3:30 am for work and secondly not feeling overwhelmed with pressure everyday. So many told me I was tripping to leave that good money. My response would always be my peace cost too much to stay. I can’t expect people to put on my glasses and see my vision.
It has been at total of 54 days since I left. I have good days and bad days. But I will say my grades are not suffering anymore! Now that I have time I can study and stay on top of my class assignments. During these past few weeks I spend more time on Indeed and LinkedIn more than my social media pages. I can’t tell you how many applications I have done or how many rejection emails I received either! Finally this past week I received an email from a company I had originally did a internship application for. However, the company offered me a job! Needless to say I went in and killed the interview. It is not the my dream job but now my foot is in the door to get to my dream. I am knocking things off my list without even thinking about it.
