I did it. I said goodbye.
I posted notice on my website. I put Etsy in permanent vacation mode. I've officially closed up shop. And while I'm still feeling a bit antsy about all of this, I know that given a couple of days, I'll feel calmer and calmer and begin to enjoy my newly reclaimed freedom.
Already, I can feel my face more relaxed and less pinched. And, I'm not feeling as frantic as I go through the steps of each day. I've had two friends interrupt me to say that I look happier and healthy. My mental to-do list has dwindled from a thousand entries to somewhere near twenty-five.
Ahhh. I just can't begin to put a price on that. Sometimes, I forget how much my well-being is worth. I hope you'll jump in and remind me from time to time. I certainly need a nudge every now and then when it comes to considering myself a priority.
This feels good. Great, even.
