That Quitting Feeling

For a few weeks now, I’ve been getting the urge to quit one of my jobs. Not because I hate it. Not because I’m not getting the respect or validation I want from a company. But because I know it’s not leading me to a path I want to be on. It’s very rare to have job where you like management, the task you do, most of the people and the pay is “ok” and still want to leave. That’s how I know it’s time to go. I’m not even allowing myself to get comfortable at what many would consider a “very good job”.

Life gets easy when you figure out what you want to do with it. I have a true destination and plan now and one of my jobs just doesn’t fit it. It’s time I take steps to walk away from it. Part of that will be leaning more into the things I really want to do. I don’t want to waste anymore valuable time not going for what I really want.

I’ve never quit a job because I knew what I wanted to do before. It was all about not wanting to be where I am at the time or making sure I use my diploma or certification in the field of knowledge. This is different. I have no real problems or issues. I don’t loathe showing up or the experience. I just want to do something that I am truly interested in no matter what dollar is thrown at me. I’m willing to sacrifice everything but my happiness. Let’s see what happens.
