I finally did it.

(1/2) > >>

I finally did it.  I quit my job.  I'm walking away from tenure, security and a life I have been living since I was 22 (am now 45) when I decided being a professor was what I wanted.  Everything I did was to get me to into the job I've had for the last 15 years.  Its done now though.  I can't believe it took me this long in some ways and I can't believe I had it in me to walk away (no one ever walks away from a job like mine) but I did at six am this morning after a confluence of episodes and sleepless nights that pushed me over the edge.  Maybe I should have done it a long time ago, I don't know, but its done now.  HOLY SHIT, I QUIT MY JOB.  You all will probably be hearing more about this in coming days but right now I am just in a state of shock that I actually had the courage to do it. 

Congratulations!!  I am sure it wasn't easy but from reading your posts, it sounds like it was the right decision for you!!  I admire you for being strong enough to do it!!!

Congratulations, good job, well done!  From what you have said it is truly the right move. 
The future is ahead, eyes forward, let the adventures begin.....

Congratulations!  I know this has been weighing on you a long time, I wish you nothing but the best moving forward.

Congrats! Sometimes big changes - although scary at first- are the best changes!
