I did it. I made the leap and quit my full time job in corporate fashion. It was so odd, like a dream. I had been thinking of it for a long time and then all of a sudden I woke up on a tuesday, had my coffee and the next thing you know the words "I've made the decision to leave the company" were coming out of my mouth like water rushing out of a broken dam. It was bittersweet. I had been with the company for a long time but the commute (about an hour and half each way), the long hours and the time away from my 2 year old lead me to get burnt out.
I felt like this:
Any spark of creativity that once was inside me had slowly but surely been blown out. I was doing a lot- and doing it all not very well. I had to end something and that something was my job. I realized it was time for a break before i fizzled out. Am I excited? You bet. Am I freaking out? Of course. But I suppose every great new adventure has to start somewhere. So here we go... it's good to be back here.
