Quality of Life

IMG_8063
Project 52:Week 21

I’ve been really thinking about what it is that I REALLY want for my life right now. What really matters.

For me.

It started earlier this week when I finally met with my manager and she told me that moving to days any sooner than August wasn’t happening. And even then, it was iffy. Apparently, the position is mine….when she feels like moving me into it.

It set me to thinking about quality of life, and what quality I want mine to have.

I’ve marinated on it all week.

The fact is that I am not happy about 75% of the time. I spend about that much time either dreading going to work, getting ready to go to work, working or recovering from work.

That’s no way to live.

So, I’ve come to the conclusion that something has got to give before I loose all i’ve got.

So I asked C-Dub last night, while at work in the mist of some serious fuckery,if I could just quit.

Now.

He said do it.

Nice to have support when you need it huh?

So I’ll give her until August.

And then we’ll see……

    Wow, it’s great that he’s giving you support on this! And I still can’t believe your boss would rather lose you than switch you. Some people are just crazy.

    Awesome!! I was afraid to ask my husband when I was in the same place. I think they understand eventually when Mama ain’t happy novody’s happy. I quietly will pray she doesn’t move you so you can really pursue what makes you happy;-)

    I am in the same place right now. I’ve asked that question and he tells me to do what I need to do and he’s behind me. I’m just too scared to make the leap. We recently had a meeting and it was really harmless, but I could feel myself becoming more and more stressed the longer I sat there. My sanity, my daughter, her daddy and her brothers are more important to me than my paycheck (although that is what keeps us going)….

    Watch out now! =) I love that C. Dub is on board with you getting to happy. I think that since we mama’s often put ourselves last on the list, we don’t speak up until we’re actually failing all the way apart. I hope you guys chat it up some more and that’s you’ll be able to leave this place to pursue your passion in something else.

    It’s a good man that will give you just the support you need. I remember being in that same boat…everything I hated stemmed from work. It was just a job and just money. It wasn’t a career and not something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Life is too short to be stuck in a rut…

    I wish my husband was supportive of me staying at home but since he is not I continue to look for something at least part time because full time just ain’t paying like it use too. I hope you get to your happy place by the end of the year.

    I SO remember that feeling– I would actually get nauseated whenever I was about to take the cut off for work. I’m glad that’s no longer the case.

    Like everyone’s said, it’s wonderful that your husband is so supportive. I hope everything works out for you, whether it’s getting the day shift or finding something else you’re passionate about.

    Do it girl! That’s what my husband told me! Do you! Your quality of life is so much more important than that job!

    I’ve been in that same place and had the same conversation with my husband. Quitting that job took a HUGE leap of faith for me personally (because I didn’t have another one lined up) and it was my husband’s understanding and support that gave me the push I needed. Within two weeks God blessed me a new position, in a new field, doing what I wanted to do. I haven’t been unhappy at work since! Good luck to you!
