Misplaced Spark

Thursday, March 21, 2013

In the last week, I have been trying to do some soul searching. Since graduating with a Bachelor of Science, my life seems to have lost all spark. I had so much promise. I was going places. In the last couple months, I feel like I have gone no where. I am still in the same dead end job I have been working for the past three years. Don't get me wrong, I have really enjoyed working as a Wellness Coach and teaching people how to use the Nautilus equipment in our facility. But, I am needing a change. For many reasons.

Today, after working here for two and a half years, I gave my resignation. When I came in, I was still debating whether this was the right decision for me. I have no second job lined up. I am choosing to decrease my hours. Keeping that in mind, I realized my unhappiness was rooted in my dread to come to work which was also affecting other parts of my life. Ironically, I handed my resignation to my supervisor at 3:00 pm as I got a call for a job interview as a PCA at 3:10. I am taking it as a sign that it was a good decision for me.

I am still soul searching to see what I want to do with my life and how I am going to get my spark back into my fitness...

    You're very brave to leave one job without another one lined up. Hope this new interview works well for both you and the company. Sending you prayerful vibes. Hug, hug -- Evelyn

    I too, just decided on a job change for next year. Still teaching, but with a different group in a different school. I love what I do, but this year I just haven't "felt" it like I usually do. It's time for a change. Good luck on the interview! Sometimes we have to do what feels right for us.

    You worked hard for a goal, reached it, and now may also be in a bit of "what now?!" funk. So good for you for taking action and making your happiness a priority!

    You know, you ARE going to go places with your degree. Sometimes it just takes a little time, though. I totally understand the frustration -- I would feel the same way! NOTHING about getting or keeping a job is easy now.

I am glad to hear you have an interview for a PCA position. You know, that might lead you where you're supposed to go in life. At the very least, you'll find out if it ISN'T too.

MANY HUGS to you my dear. Keep your chin up.
