It was just one month ago that I walked away from a job as a legal assistant after only 6 weeks. The first few days were a period of recovery and adjustment. I was emotionally and physically exhausted from my battle over whether or not to stay in that position. I struggled with it from day one on the job and when the job kept changing, things only got worse. I knew in my heart, it was not what I needed to be doing, but I was lured by the paycheck and the moral obligation I felt to be working at a steady job. Finally, there was a moment when I realized that I wasn't failing at the job - the job was failing me. It was not the right "fit" for me. That realization helped to assuage the guilt I was feeling over quitting.
Within a few days of that epiphany, I had made a couple of major decisions:
- I needed to change careers! I no longer wanted to work in the legal industry. Nor did I want to be tied to a strict 9-5 job. After considering some different options and doing alot of research, I decided to pursue an idea that I have toyed with for many years. Now, I am studying to take the state license exam to become a real estate salesperson!
- I needed to be better to my body and take care of myself so I can enjoy this life to its fullest. With this in mind, I joined a health club at the local hospital. After meeting with a personal trainer and learning that I had over 36 per-cent body fat and could not do a single sit-up, I committed to a regimen of exercise and healthy eating in order to accomplish some fitness goals.
I will be sharing more about the changes being made and the results and benefits I am seeing in upcoming posts. This journey is truly eye-opening and exciting and I can't wait for you to travel along with me!
