For the first time since 1985, I am starting the year without a job.
My employer (since 1999) is experiencing budget problems.
My job is gone.
I’ve seen some job openings I qualify for, but have not applied.
That’s a risk, I know.
It would be the “safe” thing to do.
Find another job.
Find an employer.
Instead, I intend to find my voice.
There is something simultaneously terrifying and thrilling about giving myself this time and space to discover my voice and let it speak.
What if I can’t find my voice?
What if I have nothing to say?
What if I have something to say but nobody listens?
I doubt I ever would have quit my job to pursue this opportunity.
This opportunity has done the pursuing.
So in 2014, I am taking the risk…
…to see where the risk takes me.
