Career wise, I have been at  a crossroad.  Should I or shouldn’t I?

Yesterday I came to a decision:  I am not going to apply for the promotion.

Why, you may ask? It’s simple;  the role is the antithesis of the life  I want.

Yes, there are rewards. The larger salary and some would say prestige being two of the obvious, but it comes at a cost I am simply not interested in paying.

I have first hand experience, having held similar positions in the not so distant past. And, even if I do say so myself,  I made a good fist of them.

However, that was before. By climbing another rung in the career ladder, I will be heading in the opposite direction of the life I want.

Standing still is the best way forward.

I slept well last night.
