I am honestly over the moon happy that today was the last day of my job. I am now off to do better things in my life. I couldn’t be happier with myself.
For those who don’t know, I worked at a coffee shop, on and off for the last three and half years. And now I am off to new adventures.
I plan on taking more time for myself since I have learned the importance of self care. I have worked through bronchitis, laryngitis, the common cold (multiple times), ear infections, etc.. I didn’t call in, even though I knew I should have, but I was too much of a team player to call in otherwise. But having to work through all of that, made me realize that it is important to put myself first. Because if I don’t, who will?
It also taught me that I should focus one thing at a time. Don’t overthink things, but instead simplify things when I can. I also learned to deal with things as they happen. I learned this skill because whenever we emptied a pot of coffee, I would rinse it out right away, and begin to brew more. Having that skill at work, allowed me to think like that in my life, as well. Where I shouldn’t postpone things, but to deal with them right away. Don’t put off what you can do now.
I have met some really cool people along the way. I was also a trainer, so I had close interaction with the new trainees. That taught me how to lead and provide others with guidance and to believe in themselves. I thought I was a good trainer because I am very patient and a friendly person. I am thankful for gaining more leadership skills. Because I am still thinking about pursuing a career in managerial accounting, perhaps, later on in my life. Having experienced those shifts as a leader, it made me realize that I can be a leader.
I am looking forward to having more time to myself. I plan on going on more walks, and reading outside. I can catch up on my books and TV shows. I am so excited! I am also excited about not being tied down to anyone’s schedules, but for the one I make for myself.
I am so happy to have this opportunity for myself. I cannot wait to start living my best life. I hope all of my followers will share this journey with me. O for Onward.
