Stop thinking and just do it!!
24 May 2010 | Still on land
I have spent the majority of my 40 working years in corporate America. Tomorrow I will give my notice. Lots of mixed emotions.
On the one hand: I will quote Martin Luther King, Jr. "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, free at last!" That pretty much sums up my feelings about leaving corporate America - I feel like a freed slave.
Now on the other hand: Oh my God - what am I thinking? America has an unemployment rate of 10% and I am voluntarily quitting! I can't say I'm retiring since 1. I'm not old enough to collect Social Security and 2. I may have to go back to work once our cruising life is over.
Bill and I both agree that at this point we should be bouncing off the walls, being so excited that we are going to live our dream in a few short months. I think reality is just now starting to set in and fears are starting to come out.
Even with the fears, the what ifs - from medical issues, family concerns, and on and on I can't imagine not at least trying to live our dream.
