It's been an interesting last couple of weeks so to keep a long story short, I quit my 9-5 to pursue my Filmmaking/Directing career.
It had been coming but I had no idea that March 14th, the day of my annual performance review, would be my Reckoning Day. I had no idea that when I woke up that morning and prepared to go to work that I would be handing in my two weeks' notice by midday. I cancelled that review by the way - there was no need for me to attend - especially after seeing that I wasn't a valued employee as well as seeing my best interests weren't in mind as far as the team. In retrospect, I needed to experience this and I believe that it was all written anyway. I was supposed to resign on that day of this year.
I will undoubtedly miss a handful of people including my fave Partner and my compadres who I will always keep in touch with but I will definitely NOT miss that shit head manager, the ogre that sits at the front desk and the slew of people who annoyed me on a daily basis.
Making the decision to walk away from the plantation and off into the unknown was the most freeing thing I've ever done in this lifetime and I don't regret any of it. Of course there's a tinge of fear - but I quickly turned that into the fuel needed to propel me to the next level of my artistry. When you know what you are born to do - at some point in your life you have to take a risk on yourself to be your greatest self, and I've been thanking myself every day since to have the strength to do so.
I'm excited about life and being able to now have the energy to do all that I am supposed to.
Journey with me into the next chapter of my destiny. This will be good.
