Before I quit my job, when I was still thinking about starting a side business I was thinking of making gourmet popcorn. I mean, who doesn't like popcorn...right!?! I had created some really good flavors, taken them to work and almost everyone really liked them.
So, after that life-changing call, I decided to go ahead and start the business. Why wait around, we're not guaranteed tomorrow, right?
I was making popcorn on one of my days off when my mind was racing. I was wondering why I've wasted so many years not appreciating life and why I was staying at a job that made me so unhappy. Of course I liked the steady paycheck but is THAT what life is all about? Is it worth the money to be so unhappy?
I spent so many hours that day praying about what to do and weighing out the value of life and that was when I decided that living life happy is way more important than having extra spending money.
I had a bit of money in my savings account and knew I could get through the end of the year if I left my job. After that it would be up to hard work and miracles to cover the bills but I serve a God of miracles so the decision was made.
The next day I put in my two week's notice.
That was about three months ago and I have not regretted that decision at all.
About a month ago, a very dear friend of mine died suddenly and unexpectedly. She had lived the same type life I had been living, working jobs she didn't love, just to pay the bills, waiting for life to get enjoyable. The news of her death hit me really hard but it reassured me that I had made the right decision.
Shortly after that I started recognizing things in life that make life enjoyable and THAT is what this blog will be all about, discovering the things in life that make life worth living: Lovin' the Little Things!
