Do you ever want to throw it away?

Do you ever want to quit that job that pays you six figures for something less stressful and more rewarding? Maybe even less rewarding but less mind consuming? Do you ever get on the interstate and think about staying on it until your gas runs out or you find a new place to call home? How many people have made these kinds of decisions and what were the repercussions?

Never did it, but Sometimes I do feel like selling all my assets, and moving to Europe. I have put myself here, and it would take a couple of years to liquidate, but it certainly sounds nice.

I do think about it from time to time. But knowing me, it would just repeat itself. I'm the type of person that finds a way to elevate up and not happy until I do. In the end, being in the position to make the decisions and guide a company is what is rewarding (but comes with tons of stress).

Now that I'm reflecting on it and thinking about it...probably why I really enjoyed doing my Halloween job last year. Gave me the ability just to have fun at a job and not worry about cash flows, ROI, employee issues, etc...ahhhh just a few more weeks!!!! And the ladies groping me is an added bonus

Used to think about pitching it in to sell T-shirts in San Diego ... (I knew someone who did that actually)

Other than those flickering moments of frustration ... NO
I'd hate being poor .... sometimes being shallow and materialistic is just what the Dr. ordered

That's why I tend to keep emergency cash with me - in the event I just want to start over, I can "run away" to start a new life.

There are times I've wanted to just up & leave, go somewhere else including Europe...but I'm still here where I grew up.

I know for the right person I would leave & not look back, no reason to for the right one!

Ignorance is bliss, or so they say. This is a great question to ponder and consdier but I doubt I could ever truly do it and be satisfied. I would be too eager to see what I cold to improve from that position and here I would be again.

I consider less mind comsuming all the time, but usually end in the same conclusion: how boring. Now that is only my own thought process and not to mean I don't fantasize about just saying "f(*&^% it" and just being selfish for a while. Life without a family, career, financial responsibilities, etc is an appealling thought but I am not convinced is more rewarding in the long run and not frought with it's own stresses.

Hmmmm, now that I am immersed in this thought, where would you like to head to on I-75, CJ? Gas would probably run out in the N Georgia mountains and we could have a little cabin up in the woods where we would just live a minimal life and just have mind blowing sex all day. I am reconsidering, not boring at all. Let's go! lol.

Wow - what timing for this blog.

I just did.

I left a job I despised for a much more rewarding career.

Two repurcusions:

1) I'm much happier
2) I'm a little poorer

I took a big pay cut.

Simply have to redo the books
