mayz does the unexpected

December 5, 2015

I resigned from my job of almost 10 years the other day. Now is a time for change.

I can’t go into too much detail yet… but big things are happening in mayz land at the moment. I am jumping head first into a business purchase in a different state, which means leaving my job of 10 years, selling my apartment and moving to a new city to do a completely new thing which I have never done before.

It’s an amazing feeling, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t an anxious mess at the moment. Things are moving too quickly, whilst not moving quickly enough and the amount of new people in my life including accountants, bankers, lawyers and real estate agents is full on!

It will be so worth it though. There is still a small possibility of not moving forward, and however minute, I don’t want to make claims that I have purchased this business before the ink has dried.

I am really looking forward to learning new things and reappropriating skills I have developed over the last few years to something which is mine and mine alone. No longer will I need to seek recognition from those who don’t give it or have to change ideas to suit those who don’t know any better. I will finally be able to be creative and inspired and not restricted to the whims of those who think only of themselves. It’s gonna be pretty good.

But I thought now would be a good time to acknowledge the things I have learned in the last few years, and the people who helped me get to where I am today.

  • I learned how to appropriately use the apostrophe and increased my spelling and grammar from that of an 8th grader to perhaps a 10th grader.
  • I almost completed a bachelor degree. I ended up deferring the other week as I don’t feel its responsible to participate in my final two units whilst moving state and taking over a business… unfortunately that means waiting till Feb 2017 to graduate but it will happen!
  • I gained skills in graphic design, copywriting, digital marketing and blogging… I tried starting blogs so many times in the past and never found a way to commit… well here I am!
  • I met amazing people who do amazing things
  • I developed new friendships with people with whom I know I’ll be lifelong friends
  • I adopted two beautiful house bunnies, and give them a safe home where they can grow old and be happy
  • I learned to drive
  • I became comfortable being me, and found passions I didn’t know existed.

I never could have imagined being in this position 10 years ago, gosh life has changed so much in that time. I am so happy to be where I am today, and even if somehow things don’t work out the way I am planning (there is always a possibility) I am looking forward to the future.
