Holy Heck, did I just quit my full-time job without having another lined up?!? Yes I did.
Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.
I don’t think that I made a mistake at all. I felt trapped in that job. Tied down to it, never being able to do anything but work 8-5:30 every day, every week, every month for years and years to come. That is not what I want. Yes, where I worked there was opportunity for advancement, however I’m currently maxed out on the pay so I would need to promote. There is 2 routes, supervision and then administration which would be quite a few steps up or continue to be support staff where there is much less. I 100% do not want to be a supervisor and I am on the list for promotion in the next step up as support staff but again, I don’t want to go back.
I can compare the way I feel about my job and going back to owning a house which is, being tied down and being a slave to it. This is why I want to be a RV living family. Not be tied down to a specific place. Not be a slave to a house that requires work, money and time. That because the mortgage is due, because the toilet is clogged (happens quite often) and the pluming needs to be replaced, the roof is leaking, the plants are dying, the appliances are shutting down, the walls need to be re-painted thanks to our artistic 2 year old, and so very much more. Taxes and Insurance anyone?!?
I’m not naive! I understand that RVing isn’t free and the RV and truck hauling it will require work, time and money. However we’ll have more freedom. More possibilities, more adventure and the ability to make more memories. I honestly feel that this is something that will make us truly happy. Why can’t we be happy?? Can’t we give that experience to ourselves and our children?! Heck ya we can! I am determined to do so!
I’m a little shocked still that I had the cajones to do it, but once that fades and I deal with the ‘what the heck were you thinking from my family’ everything is going to be good and I know that I made the right choice.
Worst comes to shove, I’ll use my Life Insurance license as a fall back, which will still allow me to do what I want, just not too far out of California unless I invest in licenses in other states, it’s a possibility.
So, yea. TO NEW OPPORTUNITIES THAT I WILL HELP CREATE MYSELF!!
