I Quit My Job

Before I get started I would love to wish you all A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Whether you spent time with family, partied or just had some time to relax, I hope you all enjoyed the holidays.
2016 is finally here and I thank God for the good, bad and the ugly of 2015! 
I learned a lot about myself and for that I can only be thankful. 
As you can tell by the title of this post, I quit my job and I'm still not quite sure how I feel about it.
When I started my blog I had the intentions of being as open and honest as possible about everything I post, so I guess this puts it all down to test…. YIKES!

Let me be the first to say I did not have the best job in the world but I enjoyed it.. AT TIMES. I worked at an Estate Agents in London and I can honestly say I have taken away a lot of useful knowledge for my future endeavours. And for those wondering, no I will not be disclosing the name of the company.

I quit my job for a number of reasons but the main reason was simply because I tried to do it all at once. I was working full time and I am also studying at University full time. It was hectic but it worked for a while. Let’s just say it was not easy and looking back, it wasn't exactly a good idea knowing how hands on my job could be.

Another reason why I quit my job is because I cannot work somewhere or be around people knowing that I am not happy. Have you ever worked somewhere and felt as though you were just another employee number? It’s horrible. There were definitely no intentions of allowing me to progress, not even within my job role and there’s only so much you can take. I can honestly say this definitely affected my performance, I lost motivation and I dreaded going to work most days.

The thing is, I can openly say that I was probably not the easiest to work with towards the end but I was done and mentally I checked out. I couldn't think of anything worse than bringing this negativity into the New Year. I handed in my letter of resignation to manager just before the holidays and I know I made the right decision. I literally prayed and had sleepless nights for a while because I wanted to make sure that I was not making a huge mistake.

It’s crazy because I know people who work 2-3 jobs to survive or just because they love it and I’m not that person. Yes I can multi-task, well I try my best lol but I realised that I prefer to do things that I'm passionate about and I know that will all come in due time by God’s grace. I’m 23 years old and this is just another hurdle I have to go through as a young adult.

Even though I quit my job, I try to think about the positive side of the situation which is that I'm in my final year of university and I need to concentrate on that and then pursue my dream job (I will do a post on that shortly). Sacrifices make you stronger in the long run and I'm proud of myself and that’s all that matters.
I miss the office banter soooo much and I will definitely keep in touch with my old colleagues and I wish them all the best for the future.
Quitting doesn't always have to be a bad thing especially if you’re not happy or not being treated as you should. If you are going to make a decision as big as this please make sure you think about the pro’s and con’s first and plan what’s next because it most definitely is not an easy decision to make.

I know there’s someone out there that can probably relate to my situation so I hope this helped.
