I QUIT MY JOB …
This is not some wanky I quit my day job and now I'm squillionaire! ...
I really did quit my job.
Really. I went and quit my 9-5 day job. Crazy hey? Well, I just couldn’t do it anymore. The 8 hour day in management that was becoming increasingly complex and dissatisfying plus the two hours in the car to and from. I have learnt a great deal about myself and my skills, but it just didn’t “spark joy” as Marie Kondo would say. So I picked it up, I thanked it, and I put it to the side.
Now, it would be so lovely if I could devote my days to Sticks & Stones Education as well as the publications business of ESRE Productions aka Educator’s Symposium & Resource Emporium …. But I have a mortgage to pay and foster kittens to support. So back to work I must go!
I will be going back to teaching - casual teaching. I’ve set myself a boundary and I’ll be looking to work within that circumference on the map. So I am hoping to reduce my commute to 20-40 minutes a day rather than 120 or so. In 2012-2015 This was my commute and I had a much better balanced life. So, that’s the plan. Go back to teaching — I am a teacher after all - and hone my skills again. Who knows - it might inspire some more writing. I also miss writing. I miss taking photographs, having the energy to post to Instagram, the motivation to be creative and make up my little sets...
I miss myself.
So, I quit my job and I hope to find myself again.
- Lots of Love,
