“I think one of the things I needed to learn was who I was without that job because for 20 years, that’s all I thought about all the time. I just thought, well, if I’m looking at it, going, I love it but, how long can I do it…then it’s time to go hmmm, alright well I’ve done it and I loved it and it was great and now there’s really nothing left to do here that I haven’t done, so it’s time to go try something else,”
