I mentioned yesterday that I quit my job. I know I had said that I loved it and blah blah blah, but the truth was in the short month that I worked there, I wanted to cry 4 out of the 5 days of the work week, didn't really like the people I worked with. (or just had personality issues actually) and spent every night dreading waking up in the morning and having to go back. UMM what is that? I dont want to spend every day like that. The truth is, life IS too short to spend 40 hours a week doing ANYTHING that makes you unhappy. Seriously though, we only get one of these, we need to spend every day INSANELY GRATEFUL for what we have been given, and how we are living our lives. Not dreading the next day.
I am a genuinely up-idty person. I am in a good mood 98 percent of the time, and I spend every morning driving to work praying and thanking God for my incredible life, so when I started noticing myself not feeling happy, or thankful, I knew I had to do something about it.
SO I quit. This could be the end of the world, I really don't think it will be, and I am not sure how I am going to pay my bills once my savings runs out, but it was the best decision I could have made. I know the lord will provide without a doubt, and we will be just fine :)
I am hoping my real estate career will get a nice little start here sometime in the near future. I am licensed in California, but not yet in Arkansas, so I am working on getting it all switched over so I can get started! I had SIX job offers last weekend while Jake and I were looking at houses, and I took that as God telling me to get my booty in gear and start selling houses. (p.s. getting a job at a real estate firm really doesn't mean much since you have to SELL a house to make a living, but its totally a start!)
To close, I want to leave you with a quote I read on one of my FAVORITE blogs E tells Tales, and It goes something like this,
" There are two types of people in this world, those who think we are in Famine, and those who think there is plenty, be someone who believes there is plenty, plenty of friends, plenty of jobs, plenty of love, plenty of good experiences. One good experience for someone else doesn't take one away from you, but rather proves how much good there is out there in the world"
Basically, don't spend time jealous of others, or wasting your PRECIOUS ONE LIFE waiting for something to happen, believe there is plenty, work your DAMN ASS OFF to get it, and then spend every waking second afterward thanking the lord for all you have.
