I did something on May 29th that surprised a number of co-workers. I submitted my letter of resignation. This is not a decision that I made lightly. I haven’t been pleasant at work a lot of time for the last 18 months. Something changed. Something has made me not love my work. It’s been grinding me down. This is something that needs to happen so that I will be remembered fondly by the people that I work with. I don’t need to leave a bitter taste in anyone’s mouth because I’ve become toxic.
I can’t tell you what changed or why. I can only look at what has happened and identify that I’ve changed. When this post publishes will mark 12 years that I’ve worked with the Valluzzo family doing technical field work. I’m going to miss working with them. The 12 years I’ve been here have taught me a variety of skills that I will carry with me for many years to come.
Change is good. Life goes on. I hope that the new job will be something that I look forward to doing for many years to come.
