On Top Of The World


Today I did something I never,ever thought I would ever do.

I quit my job.

In two weeks I will be unemployed for the first time since I was 15.
And I can't begin to tell you how awesome it feels.

Over the weekend my husband and I talked about how unhappy I have been at my job for the past year and how burnt out I am.
He agrees that taking a brief sabbatical is absolutely the right decision for myself and our family.
His love and support is more than I can ask for.

Here's to new chapters, reclaiming myself, and most importantly:
To Happiness.
