I officially resigned today. (To read my letter, click here.)
The face to face ‘sit down’, the knowing smile, then hand over the letter.
I also gave L a lead; a couple whose house will be a challenge to sell as well as being a challenge to assist in finding their next. Cha Ching! Can you say REFERRAL FEE? I just may have a chance to make a profit in real estate after all.
I was advised to ‘get out there.’ Don’t sit at home and be sucked into the 2 dimensional world called INTERNET… It’s possible that my next big career is quietly waiting for me to discover it?
A wonderfully fascinating place to visit if you have time on your hands and skills to offer: Volunteer Match. I’ve signed up to assist with a Reading & Literacy effort at a local library. Training starts in January. Shall I volunteer to help seniors understand Medicare? Could I be one of those dear souls who just ‘be there’ and hold a hand so no one dies alone? Perhaps handing out cookies at a blood drive…. Or throwing the hammer at Habitat for Humanity and Homes For Our Troops. I am making phone calls to inquire about more pet therapy visitations, too.
I want to take a few classes at the community center… Web Design, Grant Writing, Creative Writing, Pie Making, BE-Your+Best (rah rah) classes, etc. I would love to take a Yoga class and definitely a self-defense class.
I am afraid of commitment. I’m afraid of over-committing! I’m terrified of a schedule, having been without one for so long; I really REALLY enjoy my slow pace.
As I like to say to my Hub,
“It takes a lot of time just to be me.”
But it’s time I give back, give more…
