Why I Quit My Job After 18 Years

Heyyy y’all. I hope all is well with you guys. If you’ve been following along with me this year, then you know that I’ve made some big changes in my life. I’ve been very transparent about my journey in hopes of inspiring other women to step out on faith and follow their dreams. It takes a lot of courage. However, you can’t let fear stand in the way of you achieving your goals. Faith over fear. Always. The most courageous thing I’ve done on this journey was quit my job. I quit my job after 18 years and it’s been such a freeing experience.

Deciding to start over at forty was not an easy decision to make. But I had to prioritize my peace and happiness, and do the work necessary to achieve what I want. It’s been a process. I’m still navigating the rough patch and working on getting settled. However, I’m pushing through and pulling it together like I always do. I know that God’s got me. And I got this. So I’m not worried. I’m sharing why I quit my job in my latest vlog. Hopefully it will serve as an inspiration for those on the cusp of a career change.

  1. What a testimony! You are absolutely right…FAITH OVER FEAR! I left my job in 2013 of 27 years working for the government and there comes a time when you must decide in life which comes first; your health and sanity or staying in a job that’s stressing you out and you are constantly being by passed over positions you know your qualified for! Before I took that leap of faith I made sure my car was paid off and outstanding debt was paid also. Let me be real…things will happen that you will have no control over and that job may not come in a blink of an eye; but God will work on your behalf in the mist of the storm (he did it for me) when I took my hands out of the situation.

    I knew things were going to be different (and they were) and it took me awhile to adjust; but I’ve been here in NC since 2013 and things are good. Do I regret the move? Not at all!

    1. Thank you so much for sharing your story. I am happy that you chose to put yourself first and everything worked out for you. I know things won’t be peaches and cream and it will take some time to sort things out, and navigate the rough patch. But I know God’s got me. I’m extremely excited for this next chapter.
