Discussion on: How do I regain my sense of purpose after quitting my job

Depends on where you would like to go I suppose, just pick a direction and start taking baby steps.

I got fired once because I burned out and had lost my passion. I had worked there for 4 years and loved the place, and now it was gone.

I ended up going freelance for a few years as a sort of manic response, I had 1 month worth of expenses, and managed to barely scrape by initially.

I managed to scale up to contracting for banks, and now I hold a lead dev position where I chose the experience over the higher contractor pay check.

My point is this, that kick out the door was the best thing to happen to me. Because without it I would not have experienced as many things in the few years that have gone by.

You gave yourself that kick, now all you need to do is pick the next step. :)
