This blog isn’t a space where I share things that are typically negative in nature. Nor do I share things that are related to my career. Today I’m doing a little bit of both.
How’s that for a Monday morning? I give you, surprise #1 this week.
Today I am starting my new job.
Woo that was something to get off my chest. See, the thing is – I wasn’t happy. I spoke vaguely about my feelings toward the end of last year and even into the beginning of 2015 – stating that this year would indeed be my year. And believe me, it completely is so far.
How did I come to this conclusion? Well it wasn’t easy. I had been with my organization for ten years. TEN! That’s a third of my life! Working my way from intern to a director in that timeframe took a lot of work and don’t get me wrong – I loved working there. The people…oh the people, I’ll miss. The company had been great to me, too. But for reasons I don’t need to disclose, I determined that it was time. Time for my new beginning.
I applied to some places and before I knew it, I was interviewing and waiting and then offered an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. The interview process didn’t make me nervous at my now, new company. I knew that was a good sign of things to come. Everyone I met was quite lovely, really. Those were the positive signs I needed, and what I now believe are beautiful cosmic things coming my way.
I’m a big believer of putting good energy into the universe and letting the universe take care of you. Don’t get me wrong – I’m a hustler, but I’m a positive thinker, too.
So today is my first day. Am I nervous? For sure. More nervous than when I interviewed. Is that weird? My mom says it’s good to be nervous – it shows you care about what you’re about to do. Which is completely true.
2015 is already bringing so many new beginnings into my life. Love, happiness and amazing things are headed my way. I can’t wait for what happens next.
