I just quit my job.

I can’t stop sweating.

I am now unemployed. 

I texted my friend Amy, who I’ve known since I was 14. She is a very reasonable person, and always knows just what to say. This time, she said this:

Quitting a job takes a lot of guts … this is the next adventure of your life! Adventures are scary, but so worth it.

And she’s right, of course. My next adventure is going to be focusing everything I have in me, every shred of gumption and courage and strength, to raise my two boys into the men I know they can be. 

In the words of my wise friend, All those long hours and dreadful phone calls will be replaced with smiles, laughs, cries, and stuff that really matters. You are doing the right thing.

I know I am. And I’m scared to death.

  1. Yes it will be different and a little scary at first. But you won't regret a single moment of enjoying those two precious little boys. Best wishes to you all.
