It may not seem like much to some, and like lunacy to others, but I submitted my resignation today to my current employer. It was not a spur of the moment decision; nor was it something done lightly. It was the result of a thoughtful, careful evaluation of my life and what I am doing with it.
I have not been happy. And that, my friend, is the sum total of it. Some people call it passion, but whatever it is, I don’t have it. That isn’t good. I need an energy, a reason to be, to do. So, I am starting over.
It seems that I am on an 11-year cycle. I was a chemistry worker/teacher for 11 years. Then I fell into government work which has been the core of my last 11 years. And now I find that I am ready for something new. Maybe one of those two fields will draw me back, or even a combination of them. I cannot say what the future holds.
All I know is that I am ready for the next adventure. I hope it takes me somewhere interesting!
