I have decided to take a break from the stresses of work and will be having more time to rest, relax and reflect from November onwards. This rare opportunity presented itself when I was away on holiday during September , I got news of voluntary separatation packages were being offered to staff within my unit and after much thinking and some gentle prompting, I put my hand up.
It is a road less travelled for someone like me who always had worked or had consistent steady jobs but after this year of work stress which mainly robbed me of many nights of sleep and not being to relax on some weekends, this weary desk jockey just wants to hang up her office thinking cap for a little bit and do something with her hands instead.
I was looking for something to share for my Positive Mondays which I forgot about yesterday but I did find this quote from Pablo Picasso which I hope will also inspire some of you who are just like me , already on your road less travelled or are in the midst of considering it. Sometimes we have to ask “is it worth the pain and how much growth do I get ?” And if the answer is “No, and not much” then it is pretty much time to consider a different path.
I am just so grateful that while I try to sort myself out, I am not entirely out of pocket in the next 2-3 months . God is good. To dreams and imagination! Much love x Rachel@NOtaHati
