I'm finally out. I'm out of the fray that was the toxin, or, more commonly known as, my last job. It's easier to be happy now. I must state this was just as much a conscious choice as it was a necessary one. I chose to be happy and it was something I had to seek out for myself. I didn't realize how toxic my last job was until I started this new one; working remote is a lot better than what I thought as well. I really love working remote as it gives me a lot of freedom, but at the same time I still really like what I do and work hard at it. I hope that whomever reads these posts understands that, as an admirer of mine, Gary Vaynerchuk, so aptly put, "Happiness is the ROI" and I firmly agree with that statement. You have to choose to be happy, it takes work...a lot of work, but in the end it's absolutely beautiful.
