I was sitting in my garden on my day off from my full time job and it was a nice sunny day. This was my second to last week of work before my resignation, as I was leaving to focus on my business full time.
Here I am in the middle of a pandemic and I had given up my main soource of income! I didn’t tell many people because I didn’t want any negativity to affect me or get me down about my decision. I didn’t want to have to explain my decision to others or receive negative comments.
I had no idea how I would pay my bill’s and or have a steady income but I just couldn’t do it any more I had enough! Mentally my mind was drained, I and just couldn’t put my all into it. There was no enthusiasm, motivation or incentive for me to stay, so I left!
For years I have always known I’ve wanted my own business but I always struggled with self-doubt, belief and never knew how I would do it when I had no business training. Everytime I started a new job I enjoyed it however once I had mastered it I got bored for it was no long mind stimulating enough for me. I always seeked for something more.
The moment I handed my resignation in I immediately felt a release and felt things were coming together. Sitting in my back garden, I had been up from 3.30am and only had a 45 minute nap later in the day. As it was coming to sunset, I just sat there with a melodic song on, put my phone and tablet away and just inhaled then exhaled. When I did this I instantly felt a calmness come over to me and I smiled at the birds chirping and singing in the background.
Often I just go through each day ticking off goals on my to too list but for the first time, in a while, I just stopped to take everything in. A different sense of positivity entered my mind and it was in that moment that I knew everything was going to be okay.
My quote to you today is ‘sometimes all you have to do is stop, inhale then exhale’
