It's About to Get Real

On January 1st I will be leaving for Senegal to be a bride's maid at one of my really good friend's wedding, I am really looking forward to the trip. I have never been to Senegal so it will be interesting to check it out plus I can't wait to get away from winter for a few days. It's been so cold that I have even forgotten how the sun feels on my skin.

On my way back from Senegal I will stop over in Netherlands to spend some quality time with yet another good friend. I will meet her baby girl for the first time and I can't wait for us to catch up. These two trips will indeed be good for me and might mentally prepare me for a major decision that I have to make.

I will hand in my resignation at work when I get back.

I think when I quit my job that's when reality will set in and things will get more real for me as I realize that I am actually going through with my plans. Over the past few months It has been easy getting rid of any unnecessary baggage because my goal has been larger than any sentiment I might have attached to anything. Even moving out of my old beloved apartment was easier than I had anticipated, I had lived in it for 7 years.

In all my adult years I have always had a job and financial security. This will be the first time that I will be walking out of a job without another one lined up. For once in my life I will be jobless and relying solely on my hard earned savings. I am scared but the fear is not as great as it used to be. I am ready to say good bye to this..........
