I Embrace Change
“…great things happen when I embrace change. Actually, breaking routines and stepping into the unknown is beneficial.”

I embrace change.
Today I submitted my resignation for the contract job I’ve held for five months and which had about ten months to go, if not more. It is 100% remote, I’m earning the most money ever in my life, the people are pleasant, my schedule is somewhat flexible, and the work load relatively light. A dream job? Hardly. At least not for me.
I’ve barely made use of my vast experience and talent, I don’t feel I’ve been of much service, and I’ve not gained additional skills to add to my resumé. In fact, I feel like I’m regressing, because as the adage goes, “If you don’t use it, you lose it.”
So, a couple months ago I made the decision to let go of the easy, comfortable role and embrace change, i.e., find another job. It’s more than a full-time job to look for a job, but it’s needed and worth it.
In a couple weeks I start a new contract. It’s 100% remote, I’ll be earning more money than I have earned in my life, the eight individuals who interviewed me are most pleasant, and my schedule will be about the same. However, the job promises to be a lot more interesting than my current one—it’s in academia rather than financial services where most of my experience has been aside from when I was in my own business. I’ll get to make use of my eclectic background, experience, and skills, and I know I will be in learning mode. It is a very collaborative, people-oriented environment, and I have no doubt I will be of service. My soul is excited about this change and the opportunity to be more nourished.
Yeah, it can be scary taking the risk of leaving a cushy job. But really, there is no choice for me. If I want to have a richer life in all respects, allowing my spirit to soar, I need to take action when the current circumstances don’t foster that. And, I don’t have to feel I’m doing it on my own. Spirit is always with me.
“I give thanks for my courage to try new things and to let my routines be broken. I have confidence that God’s got this—and me.”
