With the risk of repeating myself. It is almost a week now since I pulled the plug and stopped (suddenly) working. This was something I knew would happen one day. I was so stressed out at my work, despite things (and people) that were telling me there was no need to. And I was slowly but surely caving in. My health was takin some serious beating and I knew that if I didn’t do anything to change this situation, things would end badly. So I quit.
A week is not a long time and I’m still trying to get used to my new life. I don’t know what to call this newfound freedom but it kind of feels like I’m on a vacation ready to return to work in few weeks, but still not. I am trying to reorganize myself and my life, you could say I am doing a bit of a spring cleaning, even though it’s in the middle of the summer. And I am trying to determine what is important and what isn’t.
So what have I accomplished so far?
Well, besides having billion thoughts and ideas on WHAT I would like to do with all this time I have suddenly on my hands, I have used my energy to clean my home! Not as if it was in any great need, as I see myself as a person who likes to keep things in neat order. But it helps me to think clearer when I get all the “clutter” out of the way.
Also, I have slowly started to eliminate things that easily distract me, like Facebook. I know it can and does play an important role in many people’s lives. But for me it has reached the point where it feels very mechanic. It has after 10 years of use, lost its glow. The same goes for Instagram etc. I just don’t feel the same connection to those things or the people there, as I used to. It has become more of a place for “look at me” or one way street than the opposite. It will take some time and effort to quit completely, but if I want to focus on what I really want to do, like writing and creating art, I need to break free from those distractions.
I do hope to keep on writing here, even though there is a risk no one will care or read my thoughts and stories. But I am also kind of new to this kind of blogging, so I hope I will get better with time and hopefully connect with like minded people. I am pretty sure I am not the only one having these kind of thoughts or experiences or dreams.
I am exited to continue this journey and it will be interesting to see where it will take me. I ‘ve got plenty of ideas on what I would like to write about, I just need to figure out what’s important first.
Thanks for stopping by and please don’t be shy to say hello. I would love to meet my fellow bloggers and readers!
