Ok - I hate my job. Truly hate it, and have never really been in this predicament before. It's also the job where I broke through the glass ceiling and became the company's first woman VP. It hasn't been easy, fun or rewarding. I also believe the stress of the situation has been less than forgiving in regards to my health.
So, I quit. Two Fridays ago. Without having another job. But I've never been so relieved in my life of not having to deal with the totally uber condescending crapola I was dealing with. I'm excited in a number of ways in that I'm taking some time off - one of the biggest things I'm doing is jump starting a healthy routine, working out, and getting my diet into something that resembles health and not the local drive through, or out of a bag dining.
It's been hard - I guess you can say I'm a workaholic, so being off these past two weeks has made me see in excruciating detail that I don't know what to do with myself if I'm not under deadline, walking around an empty house. I guess you can see I'm having a few realizations I'm working through, but it's all good.
Also, I've put a couple of feelers out with the companies I worked with while at the "**** job" over the last couple of years, and I'm very happy with the results I'm getting. I have an interview tomorrow, and there's another person who is taking a job with a company this week as their CEO who has stated that he'd like me to come and work for him (and this would be the ideal for me as I really think I could learn a lot from him and how he works).
But the waiting... the waiting is killing me and I'm honestly not doing well during the day while at home. I'm doing a little consulting so that's breaking the lull but gah! I think my house is the cleanest it's ever been, and I've gone to the gym every day since I quit... so I am truly excited about that!
Did I mention the waiting was killing me? I'm ready to get back to work, keep up the habit of eating breakfast and lunch, and really continue to eat healthy(er)... I have a long way to go in this area in making sure I eat the "right" foods. ..
So I guess this is a ramble, but I've been dying to tell someone, and my DH (bless his little ol'heart) is tired of hearing it!! I think part of my excitement is that I know I'm finding my balance and every thing seems to be coming together and I'm damn ready to have it all
So everyone keep their fingers crossed that I get exactly what I want!! (I'm so bad)
