I’ve literally just quit my job with none to go to… Thanks Alan Watts

So I’ve never quit a job in my life but I’ve decided I’ve had enough of doing jobs I don’t like in places don’t want to be since I’ve moved to London. I am tired of doing jobs I am not passionate about… So… I’ve decided I am going back to do what I want to do and pretending like money is no object. We spend so much time of our lives in WORK so you need to enjoy it. I’ve done 6 years of not enjoying so I’m going to be a journalist/writer now. What I was born to do and what I love doing.. Gonna leave it here with Alan and for anyone doing a job they don’t like, just do that job you want, create your own job if it does not exist and I’ll tell you in a few months how it’s worked out for me… But for now… I’ll leave it with Alan…

Chase the dream, not the competition

  1. Good girl Jenny! It’s so important to follow your dreams. Life is too short to be working in a job that you don’t like! I love my job! I know some days I would prefer to stay in bed but I really love my job! Best of luck!


    1. Thanks so much Katie! Really appreciate it… Just going to give it a shot. What’s the worst that can happen! And at least I’ll know I’ve given the writing a shot either way x x xx


  2. Hi Jenny.
