I Just Quit

by Sarah Devika Sumnauth

So the truth of the matter is that I just quit my job. I put in a letter of resignation and I said goodbye to the last 2 years of my life at Whole Foods. I made a movement so big I don’t quite know what to do with myself at this moment. 

And yet…

Here I sit, taking stock of my life and feeling a bit more than amazed at my own audacity.  But surprised as I am, I still know that I’m doing exactly the right thing.  I don’t want to let go of my dream. Ever. It’s all I’ve wanted for the past 3 years. Heck longer even, if I truly think back to my childhood when all I ever thought I wanted to be was successful (or maybe an astronaut…)

And yes I’m looking at you Drake fans, cuz you know I just wanna be successful.  (I want the money, the cars, the clothes, the h*es, I suppose?) (just joking.)

But on the real, if not now, then when?  

It’s not all me you know. If anyone asks you later, tell them that it was the Capricorn super full moon that made me do it. I swear man. Hot damn. Lighting up all the places where I feel insecure about my own business security and the structures that are currently erected in my life and how do I feel about them and how can they change, grow & shift into what they’re supposed to be.  How am I going to do all these amazing things in the limited time I have on the outside???

The truth is I had to leave. They were on to me and my supreme unhappiness was registering too loud.  I had to do it for my own sanity and happiness and passion to strive forward and innovate.

And so I did. I wrote my resignation letter and I signed my name.  I said goodbye to myself as the Body Care Buyer at the flagship Canadian Whole Foods in Yorkville Toronto and hello to myself as the CEO of my own life.   

What happens next is up to the universe and I’m just along for the ride. With any luck I’ll be more at peace in the life I’m about to create the shit out of and working on my craft wholeheartedly.  So friends, close your eyes, send me a lil light and some luck and stay tuned for the next chapter.
