"Need Encouraging Words -- Just Quit Job of 14 Years for the Pacific Coast Trail

Subject line says it all. I'm giving up a six figure job I've had for 14 years in order to thru-hike the PCT. I'm in my late 30s and have been unhappy and uninterested in my work for a number of years. I know if I stay where I am I'll end up becoming another gray barnacle on the ship's hull. It comes to a point where you can't even remember what being happy, engaged, and stimulated feels like. What am I looking for is to gain some clear perspective and regain my self confidence..."

Hey friend. Even a computer needs rebooting sometimes. Maybe you just need to take a break from it all and the fresh air may do you good. You only live once and your resume will stand for something. Just make plans to hit the ground running, to make up for lost ground when you return. Good luck hon and be happy. ~that_girl

Lol...agreed but figured a good swift kick in the butt is probably what you have received from the judgemental masses. You know best what makes you happy and will do what you must to achieve it. Chin up and keep smiling.
