Winds of change…

Standard

are going to be blowing with some hurricane force…

in 4 short weeks, we will be making a HUGE family change… I have quit my job and will be taking on the new role of Stay-at-Home Mom/ Family Manager!!!

With the economy the way it is, many people may think that I have completely lost my mind… I have worked for the last 13 years as a state employee… first in county government and presently with a state university.  I make a decent salary & my benefits are all right. So why quit?!?!?

over the last couple of years my work environment has become very unpleasant… it is a situation that is not easy to explain… the simplest would be to say that my supervisor is a bully who has made it clear that they will not allow me to be successful in this organization.  With my work environment feeling more unstable everyday & my mental health starting to suffer the big question became…

what to do?

stick it out, thankful that I have a job? desperately seek work elsewhere?

and then I read “the Holstee Manifesto”

http://shop.holstee.com/pages/about

nearly every single part of this manifesto resonated with me…

especially; “if you don’t like something, Change it.”

Life is simple, life is short… but only you can seize the opportunities

so there you have it… I have quit my job to focus on my family… and now it is up to me to make the most of the time we have together
