Starting a new journey can be scary. Not knowing what the future holds can lead to anxiety and stress. Working my previous job 8 years and transitioning to something new there was a lot of uncertainty. Thinking you will retire and end your career where you started can lead to heartache and disappointment when it doesn’t happen. When my department closed I didn’t know what I would be doing next. I research a few companies and applied for a lot of jobs. There were many days of applying and not hearing a response.
Close to completing my Masters I believed there would be many opportunities and organizations knocking down my door contacting me. When my department closed there was 2 roads and only 1 choice I could make. I always wanted more. Meaning I wanted to be the hardest worker and give 110%. When reality hit me I attempted to continue the same routine work out, go to school and keep applying for jobs.
Days, weeks and months went by and no job response. People who I believed would always be in my corner were not there.
I made a decision….
A voice in my mind said maybe this is meant to be and I should EMBRACE the change. New career, new people and a new start. 3 months into the NEW journey things are definitely night and day. I have a job that I am truly happy at and for the firs time in a LONG time I know what I want and have rediscovered me. A new start, a new day a new beginning.
A New Journey………..
