Last night I made a huge step in leaving an unhealthy work environment that I’ve been stuck in for 12 years. I went to the office, packed up all my things and left the key. I am basically waiting to be fired. Why? Because the man I work for, who was always talking about this terrible cult he’d been involved in, hasn’t really left the cult at all. He’s a sick person for a number of reasons and I can’t be there anymore.
My partner and I will have to overhaul our life, but we’re viewing it as an adventure. We’re looking for a cheaper apartment and have even approached my mother-in-law about going to live with her for a little while. We’ve even entertained the notion of living in a camping trailer. We don’t need much, we’ve never wanted much. We just want peace and quiet, and to continue our main hobby of photographing nature and wildlife.
It’s frightening because we have nothing, no savings at all, only bills we can’t pay. But I’ve been keeping this job for so long on the premise that I can’t afford to quit. Now we’re just going to take the leap on blind faith and really make the change happen.
The universe has always taken good care of me, and it has gotten me this far. I simply have to trust and take my blessings in whatever form they come. Please wish us luck!
