I had many choices to make, many chances I needed to take and changes that were necessary. In a nut shell, my health really took a "hit" and my work situation was not making it any easier or better for me to be my best. I struggled all year long to face what would be the inevitable.
I would have a long road ahead of me that only I could walk and make the decisions that would be necessary for a lifestyle of changes.
So after a completely miserable year in 2015, January 2016 arrived and with it, my decision to retire from a career that I had held for 35 years. One that was passionate about and would miss with everything I am. It was in part what defined me or so I thought. It was one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make. Through all of this, Sir... was right beside me. He went through the worst of times with me and also helped to guide me all with out telling me what my choice should be. After looking at many other options to be able to continue working but hopefully decreasing my stress level it became quite apparent to Sir that "we would need to take a different direction." And with that, in one fell swoop he sent a text telling me to give my notice that day and that my career was done. We were going in another direction. How did I feel? I felt so many things it is hard to express. I do know,
I felt "relief" Sir made the decision for me that I had struggled with all year long. And while I certainly felt some sorrow, anxiety and a loss, I obeyed him without further discussion or question.
Sir was pleased. My rear end was not!!!! That simple yard stick in the hands of your HOH is probably not the best thing you could hope for. It does however serve as a great reminder to mind one's self of what is expected of them to avoid this at all costs!! Just thought I would show all of you I can be artistic!!
