And so it starts…a New Year, a new career, a fresh start. I suppose it was only fitting that I begin this blog on the first of the year, but that didn’t happen. Blame it on technical difficulties. My heart was in the right place, though.
So I embark on my journey on the 2nd of January.
Contemplation of this little adventure began about two months ago. I had just moved to Florida, and honestly, I was feeling lost. Homesick?? Yeah, I’m sure that’s part of it. But there were other factors. For one, I had hit the “I’m in my 50’s” stage, and with that inevitably enters the nagging thoughts of “What am I doing here? Where am I going? Why haven’t I accomplished more?”
My job also had become stale. Well, not so much the job as my employer ( From here on I will refer to it as “The Netherworld” for legal purposes.). I know I need the paycheck. I know I need the benefits. I know it’s the responsible way to behave. But…
Sometimes ya gotta say WTF.
And that’s exactly what I did.
Now before you go applauding my bravery, let it be known that I have yet to leave “The Netherworld”. That was just too ballsy for my first step. I do plan on escaping as soon as possible, maybe with the help of a 12 step program. Besides, it provides excellent fodder for my daily observations. I did do some introspection however, and decided that as I love to write, freelance copywriting would be a good fit for me.
So sit back. Enjoy the ride. I have a feeling this is going to be an interesting trip….. k
