For the past 22 months, I’ve traveled every workday to Brussels by car. Everyone who reads this post and lives in Belgium knows that the traffic towards Brussels can be / always is a real pain in the ass, especially in the mornings. Yes, I ‘volunteered’ to go by car to work, because public transport is even worse in my opinion and they strike a lot. However I enjoyed my early morning rides; just me in my car, music and the perfect opportunity to curse at people without actually hurting their feelings.
About a year ago, one of the mornings I was driving to work, an accident had happened. The car was probably speeding a bit, lost control, went into a skid and crashed into a tree. I was one of the first people passing the accident, besides the firemen and ambulance. A few hours later, there was an article that stated that a young woman, 25, died in a car crash after hitting a tree. For some reason that accident or the place where it happened kept haunting me. Every day I had to drive past that place and every single time I got chills. The tree is damaged, which makes the image of that accident vivid again. I don’t have a trauma of it, but it makes you realize that life can end any time and that you should fully live your life the way you want to.
If you don’t like something, change it.
If you don’t like your job, quit.
Which is what I did. I actually quit my job after a long time of thinking it through. I made that decision, because I felt stuck and I know that I can offer and do a lot more. So here is to my next challenge starting tomorrow and saying goodbye to the good times I had at my previous job.
A good song to describe my feelings today ‘Heaven’s Keeper’ by Wardell. What I really love about it is that the song gives me two totally different feelings. On the one hand, the music is quite happy in my opinion, so for me personally it is a great cheer up song. And on the other hand, the lyrics are kind of sad in a way. That combi is how I’d describe how I feel today. Check it out!
