Closing A Chapter

For the last six years of my life I have worked at a job that I was less than trilled about. It was my first job out of college so of course I took it, having had no idea the ups and downs I would face. I was on a roller coaster of emotions with it, at times putting plenty of energy into looking for a new job. To then feeling trapped and destined to stay at the job for the rest of my life.

There were so many times I would cry to my mother, begging her to let me just come home and live with her and my dad until I found a job I enjoyed. My mother never once told me I could not come back home. But always recommended that I stay at my job and get through it because it would build my character. Hearing this at that time didn't make me feel better at all. But I decided to stay at the job because I had bills to pay. 

June of this year marked the closing of several chapters in my life. I ended my six year run at that job and moved out of my apartment, which I also lived in for six years. I look back on the time I spent at my job and thank the Lord I made it. It was the hardest and most stressful thing I've went through, thus far. And I'm glad I can look back and say I didn't give up on it. 

I also have to agree with my mother, staying at that job did in fact build my character. I learned a lot about myself and my work ethic. I now know for a fact that I can make it through difficult and stressful situations with a sound mind and the peace of knowing I will come out of it on top. 

In the end I am glad that chapter of my life is over and I'm happy to be moving on to new and better things.
