Hey Gals and Pals...

I know I know.. Its been such a long time. TWO whole years. I wanted to RELAUNCH my blog and see if I can get my mojo back. Believe me I have been trying.

Im not going to fill you with "OMGs so much has changed" and all that mumbo jumbo, but lets start from my new beginning.

On June 5, 2014 at approx. 4pm I had a feeling come over me. It was a peace that I had longed for but didnt know if it was possible to achieve. I prayed for a sign, a tangible outlet, even an excuse to walk out of my old life to begin anew. WELP, that feeling came and I was called into my managers office. I really cant remember what exaclty she said all I know is that I found myself walking so confidently down the aisle back to my desk and gathering my things and walking out. Once I got outside a fresh breeze blew across my face. The sun seemed brighter. It just wasn't as hot as it was earlier in the day. When I reached my car and sat in it, it hit me.... I had just walked out on my job. (SIIIIIIGH)

They say a quitter never wins, however at this time I just felt like I had won the battle to the long drawn out war. I didnt have a back up plan, I didnt know where I was going to get an income from, nor did I feel bad about my decision. On the way home I stopped at McDonalds and got a plain sundae with 3 chocolate chip cookies. I knew I had made the right decision when I got home the cookies were still warm and soft. I took off my shoes and laid across my bed and throughly enjoyed my cookies and ice cream.

I want to take this next journey on my blog to express my honest thoughts and experiences as I walk this new life out. As of today November 2, 2014 I still do not have a job, I have no income, I have no one to fall back on in case of an emergency. However I do believe in a higher power and over these last 5 months he has truly kept me going. I hope that I can inspire someone to take that step to freedom and allow themselves to be led to something much more powerful than ourselves. I have to admit, sometimes I do get a little anxious and a little sad but I do not regret my decision to leave my job. I am much happier and much more optimistic about my future.

I do have some upcoming events that I look forward to. I will have a birthday in a couple of weeks and I will FINALLY graduate with my bachelors on Dec. 13, 2014. Life has been great so far and I look forward to standing firm in my word that I will not settle for anything less than peace and joy.

Over the next few posts I want to show what I have been doing over the last 5 months , besides looking for another position. I have traveled, I got a few tattoos, I have made a decision to leave the city I am in, despite owning a home. I have eaten at some great restaurants, I have visited some really cool museums, and done some
things that I would not have ever done had I still been working in the dead end job I had. Talk about a vacation....!!!!

So come back to my blog and allow yourself to be free and gain some insight on quitting and winning at the same time.
