On April 14, 2011, after 25 years of full-time employment and with no new position in the works, I quit my job
That evening, I tiptoed timidly into the world of dance. Burlesque, unbelievably. Then celebrated with red wine, Mark and our good friend, Laura
In the six weeks since then, I've turned down a full-time systems analyst position, booked our long-dreamed-of cross-Canada train trip
, joined the speaker roster for PAB2011
, contributed daily to Mark's new company
and endured ten grueling hours of choreographed belly dancing.
Sure, I've continued to torture myself with self-doubt, -criticism and -loathing.
But I'm better, stronger, happier than I was.
And I'm evolving.
More Happiness here.
