I made a decision in July to retire from my corporate career. While I had been contemplating this for several years, it was my heart and my head that finally said – it’s time. Some of it is weariness from the corporate world, some of it is family. Mostly it’s seeing how fast the years are passing by and thinking about how to give back before it’s too late.
So as I get closer to leaving, I’m making a goal to start writing every day in January. I would like to freelance after some adjustment time and everything I’ve read about freelance writing is to do it every day.
Today, I’m working on saying my goodbyes and transitioning my work over to another capable individual. I’m starting to let go of the rigor of a schedule that I’ve had in some shape or form over the last 40 years. Perhaps my transition will take longer than I think, but I’m feeling good about my decision and looking forward to the next chapter. Every ending creates a new beginning.
