The Next Chapter
Perhaps wisely, perhaps recklessly, Kelly and I both quit our jobs Friday.
For years we’ve aggressively saved our pennies in hopes of taking an extended break, but could not agree on the right timing.
Last fall – as we continually found ourselves too often working late into evenings and too often flying on business trips to and from, it was clear something had to give. We decided then – that very evening the timing was right and shortly thereafter we both communicated to our employers our intent to resign, effective March 30.
The next day, Kelly affixed this picture to our refrigerator and since, it has served as a constant reminder that together, Kelly and I embark on this next chapter in our lives together.
With a myriad of emotions, and nearly six months after deciding to walk away from Corporate America, we will awake tomorrow not sure what the next few years will bring us, but I know that we will be slowing down the pace of our lives and traveling to places both familiar and new, domestic and abroad.
As in this picture, we will not know for certain where we will land. Hand in hand, Kelly and I take this scary, but also exhilarating leap together.
Let the journey begin.
