Taking Stock and Re-Discovering
Things are finally starting to settle down after all the activities of the past two months - surgery, new job, studying for a coding certification exam, all while holding down one full time job and three part time jobs. And the funny thing is, I really don't nee to work that hard anymore, so why am I?
I have been seriously looking at where I am now, and viewing my life from a place of love for myself. I am very blessed and lucky to be where I am, as far as love, health, friends, and things; but every so often it's good to take a look and adjust the sails some to get a new perspective on things. What do I want my life to look like now?
Most things I have in my life, career, things, thoughts were all created and rooted in how I saw my life before I fell in love with myself. What I know about myself now is I am an introvert. For years I thought I was an extrovert, but that was just energy being spent to mask the pain in me. I value my quiet alone time. With that in mind, I am ready to find a job that will allow me to work fully from home. I would like to be a hermit for awhile. I have been in the working world for over thirty years, mostly in the medical field, and quite frankly, I am just burned out.
I no longer feel like I have to prove anything to anyone by climbing my chosen (or not chosen, just fell into) career ladder. In fact, I am flirting with the idea of retiring at age 62, which is late next year, unless I can get the work from home gig I would like. I would love my commute to be from my bed, to the coffee pot, to my desk; and I like that about me! Sitting in my big comfy computer chair working with numbers and words all day in silence. Wow, I am drooling already at the thought of it.
This change would also allow me to have more time for the one on one coaching that is my true passion, my true calling. I can't think of a better way to spend my golden years than helping others to find their way to their one true love - themselves.
