Endings, Beginnings and the Netherlands

Nicole Emery

Instead of waiting until the end of my work assignment I created a different ending.  The next step wasn't showing up.  In the honest truth the next step was in front of me, but I wasn't ready to do it.  Finally all my senses were screaming at me to let go.  There was no avoiding the physical symptoms of emotional distress.  In a moment of clarity a step in faith was taken; I let go.  It was scary.  Letting go of a financial source without something else lined up first is a big risk.  For whatever reason all my instincts, intuitive knowing, signs from the Universe, were all pointing to leaving my job.  So I did.  Friday, May 11th was my last day.

You would think this would come with sweet rewards of bravely stepping into a new phase of my life.  Some people at work called me a hero.  Others called me unflattering names.  What I call myself at the moment is still in a place of letting go.

Without a doubt I am happy this job journey has come to an end.  I've been fighting it since the day I accepted this job offer.  It has given me a placeholder on resume, financial means to travel, and allowed me to meet some great people.  It took away far more than it was ever worth.  There is a lot of healing that has to take place in the next couple of months.  My commitment to that path is 100%.  It will happen.

But not all endings come with hardships.  The moment I let go is truly when the healing magic began.  A new beginning was created.  About a year ago I wrote about my Souljob.  I had no idea at the time the image I found was the beginning of where I was going to end up.  The image "Souljobs"came from a company in The Netherlands.  Guess what?  On May 11th I signed a contract to start working in The Netherlands!  My Souljob I'm learning entails a lot of different things, not just one thing.  I will always be a lover of mathematics and engineer, but I'm also a lover to intuition and art.  The Netherlands is giving it all to me - a new engineering job with a team of people that fit my engineering side well, a land of great Dutch artist (past and present), where a lot of my art supplies come from anyway, an opportunity to let my intuition shine, and most of all a shot at some happiness.

So, Netherlands..... here I come!  Ready for a new chapter in the career journey.
