That next step

So I took that next big step. I gave my notice and worked my last night at my job on Monday night. I took that awful uniform off for the last time about 3am Tuesday morning. I can't believe that after 5 1/2 years, I am not going to be there anymore. All of my friends were sorry to see me go and I feel almost like a traitor leaving them but I have to do what is best for me. I am supposed to be meeting a lady to talk (and hopefully sign a lease) about a house this evening. Maybe I can be moved soon and this whole transition thing will be over with. I haven't even had a chance to get on a horse since the end of January and I am jonesing for the country. This city life is killing me.

  1. Good for you! This is exciting. Jumping off the cliff into the unknown abyss of your dreams is a scary but amazing feeling. I know that I am younger than you are and have not had the same life experiences so I can't say that I understand what it feels like to leave another career behind, but I do know what it feels like to turn my back on what other people consider normal and just follow my dreams. I dropped out of college after years of people thinking I would go onto graduate school (I thought I would too) and just started pursuing my career as a horse trainer. It is hard and scary at times, but I would not have it any other way. I wish the best of luck to you!
