Major Life Changes

Well, I quit my job at my primary employer for the last thirteen years.  My last day was Friday, April 8th.  I didn't expect a parade or anything like that, truth be told I was just ready to move on to new things.  However, I think my leaving went relatively unnoticed by anyone but my close friends at work.  It was an odd feeling.  Again, I didn't need anything to escort me out in a blaze of glory or anything but it felt a little odd to walk out without remark.

On the plus side, now my life is mine to navigate.  The job I had was safe.  It was reliable.  Nothing great and not too bad.  It was a life of mediocrity and I have had enough.

I am now self employed and have my hands in several pies.  The thing I love is this...my "destiny" is mine to control.  I know it was before but it just didn't feel like it.  Now I will take on new jobs and never know for sure what is going to happen next.  I will succeed or fail based on my own merit and willingness to work hard.  I am not afraid of hard work.  Not in the slightest.

Only a few small steps left in me taking total control of my life.  Or course no battle plan survives contact with the enemy but I have a plan.  One that will make me happy and set me apart from the tedium I allowed myself to get mired in before.

I will be posting new information as I get it.  My first big contract is taking me to Singapore.  I will be sure to post pictures when I have some.  Wish me luck.
