“Oh wow you’re actually going through with it?”. “Are you sure this is what you want to do with your life right now?”. These were some of the many questions I faced when I made one of the most important decisions of my young adult life. The story goes like this…(pitcher of Margarita on table). I started my working life at the age of 20. After taking a one year break after community college to figure out what I wanted to do with my life I got my first job interview at a bank I had never heard of. Honestly I had no clue this bank existed so much so I had to ask my dad for directions to the building. My interview went well and was exactly how I had hoped it would be. Two weeks later I was asked to come in for training. It was a little intimidating but eventually I began to enjoy the interactions with customers. I gained experience in all the departments of the bank during my 8 year stay. I realized early on that there was little room for upward mobility in the organization so decided to invest in myself and become more marketable in the future. On this note I sacrificed and attended Monroe College to get my BA in Management. All the while gaining experience in many departments at work. After Monroe I kept on the road to further my education with my MBA. It was a long hard road but not for this story. In 2014 the bank I had learned of 8 years ago was a toxic environment to work in. I was not happy with my professional life and I felt stifled. This led to the biggest decision of my life. I decided to leave my job and make a big CHANGE! I know it seemed crazy to make that change in the midst of struggling economies and increasing unemployment but I was tired of being bitter and resentful every time I stepped into that building. I had tried for 2 years prior to 2014 to tolerate the environment and focus on building a better life. But the time had come when my mental and physical health mattered more. As I decided to make the bold move I seeked the guidance of God and asked for his wisdom. This was not a move of pure frustration but of a bigger plan thee almighty had for me. With this move I get to focus on things I enjoy doing and to also write a new chapter in my life where I am not afraid to take risks. I have been diligently looking for the right job opportunity and also working on my own business ideas. The Muse Unraveled is my first venture into the writing world and I will work hard to develop it into a brand that can be used to empower modern day muses to live out their dreams.
