My corporate hiatus lasted five months. In all fairness, my new position was an accidental find, one that has been fun and rewarding.
It started as a temporary position, and I had zero intention of becoming an FTE. What changed my mind? The company and even its leadership aligned with my own values:
- Servicing the greater good
Not to mention they “made me an offer I couldn’t refuse” [in my Godfather voice].
All joking aside, my hiatus wasn’t a total waste of time. I was able to learn who I am, what I want, and what I value. I learned to ask for help; I even began therapy with an amazing therapist, and with each step, I’m here and stronger than ever.
