This post comes at an interesting time. I recently quit my job as a Brand Manager (marketing) after only nine months. It seemed like the perfect job at first, but turned out to very much not be. There were so many things that happened at my job that were just nuts – you wouldn’t believe the stories. But you would have agreed it was time to go. That I can say for sure.
I’ve actually gone out on my own for a time doing freelance and consulting while I figure out what is right for me in my life. I have been working and doing this blog for three years now, and it was time to take a break from everything to figure out ME. You don’t realize how easy it is to lose yourself when you are working 24/7. It’s definitely my own fault – I burnt myself out – and I accept total responsibility.
I have had to reach out to friends and family during this time of losing (giving up) my job. Friends have helped me find opportunities; my brother and his wife have agreed to let me live with him for a bit while I “get my act together.” I’m looking forward to finding a position that is right for me while I tick along, writing this blog and consulting. I’m very thankful, because I don’t want to settle when I find a new job. I want to find what is right for me.
