Ending The Decade Strong

Today, I officially started a life insurance policy. This was a task that was Long overdue. One of my new biggest fears is leaving this earth and leaving my family needing to start a Go Fund Me just to cremate me and stay afloat in my demise. That’s also super disrespectful on my end. How can I spend my time on this earth, live and create life and not make sure those lives are in the best possible position when mine is over?

It may be an extreme way of thinking but it’s why I made the decision I did today. I feel really bad for families that have to ask for money or not know how they are going to eat and live without the head of the household around. It truly is heartbreaking on so many levels. I want to play the game of life smarter going into the next decade. Cause when the game is over, it’s over.

Grant it, I plan to be around till 115, but who knows what my 40’s and the new decade will bring. I may have more children, I may develop an illness. I may become a multimillionaire and be full time working for myself at 43. The only thing sure is nothing’s for sure. So I got to be ready for whatever.

Closing out the 2010’s with a good credit score, a savings account and a life insurance policy. Next decade we really get into investing and securing our financial future.

That Quitting Feeling

For a few weeks now, I’ve been getting the urge to quit one of my jobs. Not because I hate it. Not because I’m not getting the respect or validation I want from a company. But because I know it’s not leading me to a path I want to be on. It’s very rare to have job where you like management, the task you do, most of the people and the pay is “ok” and still want to leave. That’s how I know it’s time to go. I’m not even allowing myself to get comfortable at what many would consider a “very good job”.

Life gets easy when you figure out what you want to do with it. I have a true destination and plan now and one of my jobs just doesn’t fit it. It’s time I take steps to walk away from it. Part of that will be leaning more into the things I really want to do. I don’t want to waste anymore valuable time not going for what I really want.

I’ve never quit a job because I knew what I wanted to do before. It was all about not wanting to be where I am at the time or making sure I use my diploma or certification in the field of knowledge. This is different. I have no real problems or issues. I don’t loathe showing up or the experience. I just want to do something that I am truly interested in no matter what dollar is thrown at me. I’m willing to sacrifice everything but my happiness. Let’s see what happens.
