[b][color="#3399ff"]I have taken the plunge. Wish I had done it sooner but realize that things happen for a reason at the time they happen. I kept trying to find the good job in my well intended career field. Finally realized I had been trying to rearrange deck chairs on the Titanic.[/color][/b]

[b][color="#3399ff"]Only posting this to encourage others to think outside the box. Before, I had a goal that I unconsciously suppressed. Now it is real and I feel as if I have a new life.[/color][/b]

Not a bad time at all, especially if you don't dread the day

[b][color=#3399ff]I have not slept well on Sun night (in years) until I decided to make this change. No one else where I worked sleeps on Sun night either. That's all I needed to know, but it is amazing what tolerate.[/color][/b]

[color=#3399FF][b]Looking forward to going to work is going to be so refreshing.[/b][/color]

Trying to talk the wife into a change. She's been in her biz for almost 25 years now and is a COO with a pretty strong 6-figure salary. She hasn't been happy for over a year and she's exploring other opportunities, but I guess it's not to the point when she hangs it up.

Her current contract is up in August, so maybe she'll decide to not pursue a new deal and we'll move on. I'm not sure I should push her or let her decide for herself.
