On resigning

Posted By on May 28, 2013 | 6 comments

Recently work hasn’t been all cupcakes and rainbows. And if I’m completely honest with myself, I haven’t been happy for quite some time. So two weeks ago I decided it was time to look for more challenges, more growth opportunities, more fun, and so I resigned.

Yes, I resigned!

For anyone that knows me (or my boss for that matter), this was quite a feat. I resigned without having something new lined up. I resigned to give myself the proverbial kick up the ass that I so needed to get my head and heart right.

The boss took the news quite calmly. Not at all how I had expected him to. But this calm acceptance was good. He knew I was serious. And I knew he was taking it seriously. I mentioned that I had a person in mind as my replacement and just like that she was called in for an interview the following day. And the day after the interview a letter of offer was sent through. Just like that! Just like that I had resigned and replaced myself and I felt great! A load that I never realised was pressing down on me was suddenly lifted off my shoulders.

I have given my boss (and me) a nice long notice period so now the job hunt begins…


  1. I’m sure that wherever you go from here & whatever you end up doing, you’ll rock just as much at it as you clearly do at this job. Best of luck to you!
