After waiting nearly 3 months and just accepting the fact that I would never be paid from my former employer, I finally received my last check and I may or may not have jumped for joy! (May not). It’s been a heck of a ride since quitting but a few things I’ve realized
1) Retail is terrible, and I wouldn’t wish it upon my worst enemy…not that I have any of those. I’d rather call them lurkers
2)Life is so much more pleasant when you aren’t wasting 40+ hours in a job you absolutely loathe, simply because you have health insurance and a steady income.
3)If you aren’t living a life that enables you to use your God given talents, are you really even living? The answer of course, especially in my case, is no.
4)No matter how safe a job, or a friendship, or a relationship for that matter might make you feel, you weren’t meant to live a life of safety. There is no sense in sticking with that meaningless job, or that meaningless relationship, especially when it becomes toxic. True blessings come from living a life with Christ, and to live a life with Christ, sometimes you have to step out of that safety zone and embark upon that great unknown.
