I got a new job! Crazy, I know, but this has been an incredibly emotional, challenging, and exciting decision for me. After two interviews, lots of waiting, decision making, crying, accepting an offer, and even more crying, I'm making the move to a shorter commute and a great new challenge.
I don't want to go into great detail about my past or new position because I like to keep my professional career mostly separate from my blogging world, but I just can't help not sharing this with you all. Let's just say I'm leaving the advertising and health care world and heading into the financial industry. Oh and the most exciting part?
This simple girl that considers herself a writer, first and foremost, will get to write...full-time! I can't wait to be writing, learning something that has always peaked my interest, and start this new challenge.
Last week was incredibly emotional for me. This workplace had become a small family and home for me, and now it would not be one anymore. It brought out a lot of tears that I didn't anticipate.
So I cried a lot, and I'll probably continue to cry a lot as I make this life change and career transition. They're happy tears, sad tears, scared tears, and excited tears. Again, change is hard, but sometimes we just need to take a moment to use our own courage, strength and wisdom to know that change can be a great thing. And this change is definitely a great thing.
So today is my last day at one career, and next week I will start new. A new beginning in a new career that has great potential! Wish me luck!
