Taking a leap of faith

I put in my two weeks notice yesterday, and I have no job lined up. And I could not be happier with my decision. Yes I know it's a huge risk, and yes I know that on paper it was a stupid decision. But life isn't just about what looks good on paper. It's also about what makes your heart sing, or what is slowly crushing your spirit. Because sometimes even if there is nothing really wrong with a job, if it's not right for you then it will slowly kill you. And so for the sake of my own sanity, I'm jumping ship. It's time to sink or swim and unlike Dido, I am not going down with this ship. I will find somewhere new and better and perfect for me, even if I have to go through a thousand temp jobs and ramen meals to get there. I've already had people comment on how much happier I seem. I even car danced this morning. You know, when the perfect song comes on your radio and you can't help but turn it up and do a little dance. I don't remember the last time I car danced. I am however, looking for a job. I'm working with a staffing agency and they seem to be pretty busy, so hopefully I will find a place soon. In the mean time my first day of class this summer is this weekend, we're moving in a month so we have packing to do, and well there's always my writing. It would be nice to get that going again. So, my few but lovely readers. What leaps of faith are calling you? What is holding you back? What's the worst that could happen if it doesn't work out? What's the best that could happen?
