Time flies when you are busy living life. I shouldn’t be shocked that it’s swiftly moving along, since I feel like I have so much to still get ready for!
Just when I feel like I have plenty of time, I keep looking up and seeing that bridge in my life is getting closer and closer.
Then, suddenly, I am at the toll booth in line to cross.
Out with the Old
I put in my notice at the office to let them know that I am leaving them today. My bosses took it surprisingly well. Probably because they haven’t realized all the little things that I do to keep everything rolling smoothly…yet.
It is possible they will request me to work remotely temporarily until they hire and train someone to replace me. Honestly, I will be super hard to replace because I am an awesome employee.
In With the New
I’m now turning my attention to crossing that bridge that has been looming ahead for such a long time.
I have a lot of concerns about the transition, but being the organize and proactive person that I am, I have already started researching how to handle it.
There are a LOT of resources and plenty of people willing to offer up tips and advice. I plan to gather up all that advice and decide if any of it applies to my lifestyle and situation.
One of my concerns is scheduling. I could easily find myself falling into the trap of filling my newfound days of freedom (not at an office/kids off to school/empty house) being incredibly unproductive if I don’t schedule my life.
Like binge-watching Netflix in my pajamas all day unproductive.
I am already compiling lists of chores, medical appointments, volunteering options, and other things that I would do if I had more time…now I just have to force myself to be motivated!
I have a month to plan and prepare myself, but in many ways I am SO ready mentally already.
