I mentioned that a dear friend just ended her stint working for “the man.” I am so proud of her. She has struggled a bit with what to say to inquiring minds who ask because she is so young and vibrant. The question is inevitable. “And, what do you do?” I said to tell the truth. “I am living!”
How about we think of it as a time to regroup, restore, remake and recreate, regain our purpose and life path? Recalibrate and revive the passion that makes us truly alive. Realign with our true desires and calling. Reconnect with the dreams of our childhood. Leave the job? Absolutely! Retire? Never. Now begins our life’s work. And you do not have to wait until you leave your job to do this.
