    Your article is even important to me! Thank you for writing it. I retired in July, 2015 and I loved my job. It was a difficult decision and I thought about some of the things you wrote here. However, I really needed to read what you wrote about ‘time.’ Even in retirement, I fall into the trap of doing things I think I ‘should’ be doing. Thanks to you. I’ll be more careful.

      Thank you so much for your encouraging words! Am absolutely thrilled that my post is making you rethink and segregate your “should-be-doing” things from your “love-to-do” things. Hope you have a fabulous retirement and enjoy it to the fullest. Cheers, D

    I hear ya! I left my job, which I loved, after having my daughter and it was both liberating and terrifying. Now I’m starting to identify more as a writer, something I wouldn’t have done if I stayed at my job. It’s scary and difficult sometimes, but worth it! Thanks for sharing at the Manic Mondays blog hop!

      Thanks! “liberating and terrifying” just about sums this up perfectly for me 🙂 Always a pleasure to join your blog hops. Thank you! Cheers, Daisy

  4. I felt so free when I quit my last job. I still feel it was one of the best step I have taken in my life.

      I couldn’t agree more, Deedra! It’s been a year and still not regretting it 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to read my post. Cheers, Daisy

  5. Great post. Like you I actually think we need more discipline at times like these as there is no forced structure for us to fit into. Thanks for sharing. Kirsten

    1. Daisy Suman says:

      Thank You, Kirsten! Yes, the discipline has to be there or it all pretty much goes downhill (Spoken from experience of my initial slump days 😉 ). Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post. Cheers, Daisy

    I really needed to read this today! I’m a mom of 3, I work full-time while also working on completing my PhD. I started blogging a few months ago and I dream of the day I can walk into my 9-to-5 and hand in my walking papers. When I read the tip re:identity, I was reminded that I am so much more than my job title or my educational background and that I’d be so much happier if my identity was defined by my talents and passions instead.

      Glad to hear that you liked it! Looks like you got your hands full, juggling everything in your life. I can very well imagine the amount of stress you must be under on everyday basis. But yes, Kudos for managing it all!
      Was happy to know that the re-identity point resonated with you.
      I wish you the very best of luck so that your dream becomes a reality soon and you are able to say bye-bye to your 9-to-5 and focus on things you love and are passionate about instead. Good luck!
