My happiness and job satifaction has suffered. Some of the most joyous and fulfilling parts of my life have been helping others. I've finally made this connection and decided to adopt my life plans to allow myself to go in this new direction.
I've been out of school for five years and finally decided to return to college to pursue a nursing career. In August, I'm quiting my job to pursue school full time. While this will require me to return home (as I can't work 6-7 days a week 12 hour shifts anymore) I'm looking to cutting back to a part time job. Despite this, I'm very excited and looking forward to this change. I'm happy that I've made this call before I got futher caught up in the corporate lifestyle.
This means the world to me. I'm scared of failing and scared of possibly not making the cut into a nursing program, but I'll never know if I don't try. I'm also scared of leaving the security I have with my management postion. I am good at my job. But I can't put my heart into it.
Regardless of the money, sometimes it can't mean everything. I'm just happy that I'm finally trying to pursue my dreams.
