I Finally Resigned From My Job

in , , , by Linda B Hurd, September 17, 2017

I resigned from my job as a bank teller officially on Friday, September 15th, 2017. That entire day I had so many mixed emotions and yes, many of my mixed emotions came from my pregnancy hormones that I have been trying to keep at bay. Those mixed emotions were happiness, uneasiness, anxiousness, and sadness. I found excitement within doing my makeup and getting ready for what was truly going to be my last day on my job. Of course, if you have been an avid reader of mines for some time now you would know that I truly disliked my job with a passion around this same time last year. 

When I started as a bank teller I just knew that it was not the job that I had any interested in making a career of. My two bank mangers even asked me to resign in October of 2016; stating that I wasn’t bank teller material. Click here to read that blog post. Now today I thank God that I had the opportunity to prove them wrong and even last longer than they depicted that I would have. 

Keeping it honest with you as usual, I never made as much as I did with any job before becoming a bank teller. I could say that I never had over one thousand dollars deposited into my bank account and that’s after taxes. Even though, I did not and still do not have much materially to show from my position as a bank teller, I still am thankful. There’s few people that can say that they know what over one hundred thousand dollars looks like in cash, and I'm stating this in the most humble way possible.

I realized that God place me at my job for several reasons. One of those reasons was to show me that no matter where you come from in this lifetime, you can chase your passion and make money from the comfort of where God and your ambition to hustle takes you. 

On my last day, I felt like God has a true purpose for me to fulfill. I get this same feeling every time I have previously resigned from a job too. I am 34 weeks and one day pregnant and really need this time before my pregnancy to get as much together as I can. At the beginning of this year, I told myself, my husband, and a few trusted co-workers that this year was going to be my last year as a bank teller. I spoke not only life into my words, but truth. 

God was preparing me for greater and that greater is now motherhood! I am ready and eager to embark on this new journey. I will also be working on many blog posts, e-books, and YouTube videos. My mind frame and my approach to life is more upbeat. Becoming a stay at home mother is in the works for me within another month and I will for sure keep you updated on how it goes. 

When was a time you had to let go of a job, relationship, situation, or etc., to move forward in life? How did it make you feel at first? How did it make you feel after completed? What did you learn?
