Last Day!

Last Day! Last Day! Last Day!

It doesn't feel real yet. After working here for 3+ years I don't have anymore the idea of what being without my steady paycheque will look like. I think you quickly get used to the routines in your working life:

The routine of getting up in the morning at a specific time.
The routine of getting $$ in your bank account every two weeks.
The routine of procrastinating, then stressing out to catch up at the last minute.
The routine of complaining about work.

Two out of four of the routines I just listed are negative habits. That's what happens when you start to get comfortable in a job, you pick up both good and bad habits. This is why it's good to make sure you don't get too comfortable. You don't necessarily need to leave your job (as I am doing) in order to break those bad work habits, but you do need to be aware of the things in your life that you could do a little differently for better results. If you do not, then you risk not only job security, but the potential of living a full life as well.

But you learn and you move on, you watch for opportunities, and also for potholes or traps along the way. If you start something and it doesn't work out for you, you don't let the setback destroy you. You meet new people and try to be a good friend/colleague. You live your life with integrity and heart. That's all that anyone can ask of you, or themselves.


Blogging light for the next week or so - I'm going on vacation. My grandmother is taking me to the spa :)
