I did a podcast for this, but I felt I should put it into words too. On Thursday, I informed my boss of my intention to leave, as I’ve found myself another job, closer to home.
It’s a big decision, a decision that left me feeling nervous and apprehensive in the run up to acting on it. Things have unfolded quite quickly, which doesn’t leave a lot of time to breathe. I dreaded the conversation, but it went well – my boss was understanding and accepted my move. It’s not without risk, but there’s risk in staying put too. I will get more family time, which is massive, and something money cannot buy. I am excited for the opportunity.
