Today was a very emotional day for me… it was my last day at Coldwell Banker Bain. I did pretty well all day and appreciated all the love that was given to me. I lost it when I said goodbye to my boss… I love my fellow staffers… You are more than just coworkers… you are family! I know it wont be goodbye forever but it will definitely be a change to not see each other every day…
To sum the past 3.5 years up… there have been good and bad times… mostly good though. I have learned and grown so much from working there. The agents are amazing people and truly make people’s dreams come true.
While I know things present themselves and it’s up to us to follow or ignore them and it’s always for a reason… I have to trust in myself that I am doing the right thing and following my heart… and that leads me to my son and my family. They are always my #1. I do not know where life will lead me right now… but I feel that doors are being opened. How can I not go through them?
Im choosing the simpler life… taking things as they come… trusting the fact that I will make the right decisions when presented with opportunities…

So I haven’t posted in awhile but lots has changed…
Jose went to Texas for 2 weeks at the end of February… I did not like being a single parent. I am so glad to have him home… Some things that happened while he was gone:
1. Jovani sick with the stomach flu
2. Went to the Chocolate Festival with my best friend, my mom, and grandma.
3. I got sick with the stomach flu
and finally 4. I put in my 2 week notice at work!
Yea thats right… As of March 17th at 4:31pm, I will no longer being employed by Coldwell Banker Bain. I have made the big decision to change careers… completely! I have decided that I am going to live a simpler life from now on… Im trading my marketing deadline for nap times!
I am going to work for Kindercare. I want to be closer to my son. I feel like I have missed entirely too much over the past year and a half… My baby is only a baby once and for such a short time, I just can’t stand to miss anymore.
I was feeling a little stuck in my position and felt a need for change, in some way or another. We no longer had tuition reimbursement at work and I felt the need to learn something new, something I could advance with. I still and always will have a passion for design and marketing, but the opportunity has presented itself to change and explore… how can I not take advantage of it?
I will miss my Bain family terribly and it brings a lump to my throat to think about not seeing my boss, coworkers and fav agents. I can only hope we will stay in touch. Thank goodness for social media! This was a very tough decision for me and I have to trust that everything happens for a reason. I have to have faith that I will do great in everything I do… Maybe some day I can be that inspiration I strive to be… Until then… lets change some diapers and wipe some noses!
Awwww… the simple life. (or so I think)
