People enter the New Year with resolutions to make changes….
How many times do people choose something that turns their lives upside down, and follow through?
My husband and I did just that. After several months of looking for another job, a lot of thought, discussion and prayer, I quit my job without another lined up.
Disclaimer: Our decision is not recommended for most situations. It appears against logic. A friend mentioned, “Faith was never intended to be a substitute for intelligence.” And we completely agree! But this was a decision that was made very plain for us.
So. We spent New Year’s Eve and the following days with my mother-in-law, considering all our options for the future….jobs, apartments, etc. Last Tuesday I had a job interview with a recruiter. The following day I started my current job. It is a temp job with the potential of growing into something more. At the very least, it puts us near where we had been financially.
We have family to stay with and a job secured (temporarily) But many more things to figure out: apartment, selling/renting our house, another car, pets, another job….
It is a huge choice we’re taking one day/aspect at a time. We are plowing ahead, believing we can make it.
Of course, I will keep you all up to date on our progress, struggles, and victories!
Anyone else make any unusual resolutions for the year 2012?
