Music Monday – I’m Moving On

I’m kicking off the last week at my day job, and my emotions are all over the place. I’m happy I’ll have more time to write and focus on the books, but I’m also scared to death. I’ve been with this company for seven and a half years, which is longer than I’ve ever stayed in the same job in my life. (I’m a bit of a nomad.) These people aren’t just co-workers, but friends. Not seeing them every weekday is going to be weird. 

But, I make a conscious effort in my life to remain positive at all times, and this is definitely the time to turn that up a notch. Though this week is going to be bittersweet, I need to do this. I need to put all of my focus and energy into this writing career and do it right. I can’t do that if I have two full time jobs. 

I’ve had the privileged once before in my life to spend my days doing something I truly loved. And after six and a half years as a disc jockey on country radio, I rode off into the sunset playing this song. Seems fitting to play it for yet another big change in my life. 

I’m Moving On…

    Oh, Mona. That is awful that they’d do that to you. I hope the place fell apart as soon as you were out the door. Clearly you don’t need them. Boo!

    Thank you for the encouragement and support. And for reading the books!

    That song always makes me cry, even if it isn’t applicable. I love Rascal Flatts. They are great in concert, too. Good luck to you! I left a job after 21 years, but it didn’t end on such a good note, so you are lucky. So good that your new career is taking off & you can spend more time with your daughter!

    Wow, Sharlene. I haven’t even stayed in the same state for 21 years. So sorry it didn’t end well. I am lucky. It’s already been expressed that should I need to return, it’s likely a job will be waiting for me. Or at least a really good reference.

    That is going to be strange. Kiddo is in 9th grade and I’ve never been waiting for her at home when the school day ended. I have a feeling that might be an adjustment for us both, but I do look forward to being able to chaperone and participate in more school activities. I might even join the PTA. 🙂
