I’m starting a new chapter of my life. I’m about to be laid off from my job at a large bank. Banking was never something I saw myself doing, but I took a position in a bank after graduating college and one thing lead to another, and all of a sudden 7 years have passed and I’m still working for a bank. Don’t get me wrong, it has been a great experience and I have became a stronger person because of my time in the banking industry. But some head-honcho-number-cruncher decided that I cost too much money, and my position was eliminated. Just another casualty of an increasingly electronic society.
I’m scared. I’ve had a job for as long as I can remember. But I haven’t been even CLOSE to happy in my working life in a long time. And I’m so lucky to have an amazingly supportive husband who wants me to be happy and reach my full potential. And my potential lies outside of the walls of a bank run by a huge corporation. I know this to be true. So this new chapter is a blessing. I have the chance others would give so much to have; to take some time to figure out what my passion is, and to see where that passion leads me.
This is my new start.
