I sit here today feeling like a much lighter woman. No, I have not lost a whole lot of weight. This morning I signed all the papers to finalize the sale of my CPA practice. Coincidentally, the movers showed up right as we were finishing up the signing and they took the last of my “office furniture” including my very large executive desk. It is very strange, I honestly felt like I would be a little more sad to see it all go. However, I think jubilation is a much better word.
Let me go back a little ways and explain something. I have been contemplating this decision for the last two years. It was July of 2009 that I very seriously thought about selling my practice, but it just did not feel right. I woke up in September in the middle of the night in a panic, realizing I was not listening to my heart. Even though, the thought of doing it for one more year, let alone two almost killed me mentally, I knew the best thing in the world was to follow my heart. And I did. Thank goodness!
