Day 238: First day without a job. Good day.

So, I told all the people that are important that I quit my job. I thought they’d judge me. If they are, they are doing it silently, which is my preferred way to be judged.

I picked up a planner/scheduler at the bookstore that allows you to structure your day and keep track of your habits and activities. It’s quite unique; I’m not sure how to describe it, but it’s not your typical scheduler. I write down what I hope to accomplish and then I track it and have goals for the week and reflections on what worked and what didn’t.

Structure will be essential at this time. And I actually think I can do it now. I actually think I have the discipline to do it.

I’m tired today. I walked 2 miles. Which isn’t too much compared to what I normally do, but I don’t usually walk continuously. And, as such, my hips are a little sore. I tried taking a nap but it wasn’t on my list so found that I couldn’t. I guess I need to schedule in a nap!

I quit my job yesterday. Last night was the first night in over a month I haven’t had a disturbing dream. My mind is more at ease.

Here are pics from the last 2 days of walking. Yesterday was 42F (6C) and windy so it was brrrr. Today was 48F (9C) and I was sweating in my heavy jacket and had to carry it in the end.

About Quixie

Hi! I go by "Quixie." Quixie is a shortened version of "quixotic," which means: "exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical." It's how I described my evangelical Christian faith when I started blogging 7 years ago. Now I'm an agnostic atheist who is trying to find a balance between idealism and reality. I write about my mental health journey with bipolar disorder, my loss of faith (deconversion), parenting teens, reading, exercise/health, work-life, and my marriage separation/divorce.
