My name is Heidi and I am in the midst of a big life change.
First off, I quit my job at the beginning of the year. I have been a Spanish teacher in a wonderful high school for the last six years, but I knew starting out that it would not be forever. I’d thought about changing careers for a few years now, and this was the year I knew it was time to leave.
I am also in the transition between leaving what has been my home for the last 29 years and moving to a whole new city and state. I’ve decided to move to a bigger city to allow myself an opportunity to explore, discover, learn and grow.
It has felt super scary, because it means leaving everything and everyone I know, and diving into the unknown. And in complete honesty, I feel like fear has taken the wheel as of late. I keep moving forward because I knew when I started (and know still) that deep down this was the right path for me to take, the next stepping stone - even if I don’t know how the path will look ahead.
I don’t yet know what the next step for me fully is in terms of career, but I have secured a certificate for teaching so that I can substitute teach in my new city; and I took on a remote customer service position to get started in a steady flow of income, too.
I am simply reaching out to ask for advice, wisdom and insight, resources, support, and also to simply state where I am right now in my life.
Love to you all,
