I’ve been a bad blogger. I’ve not stuck to my goal of posting every week!
I swear I’ve got reason. I know I gave you all sorts of excuses about traveling for my job, blah blah blah. Well, my new excuse? I got a new job! In the past 8 weeks I’ve been balancing traveling for work, interviewing, being offered and accepting a new job (!!), putting in my notice, and starting at a new job. It has been insane to say the very least! While I am beyond excited to be in this new role with a new company, it took a lot to get me to this place. I wasn’t sure I would get the courage to leave my old job. I had been with that company for 6.5 years and I am only 26 years old. It has been a huge transition and I am still nervous now (a month into the new job) because I am still learning something new every day. I am also still getting to know my new co-workers. In my old role, I knew so many people with the company. I had friends all over the place, no matter what location I was in. With this job, I am still learning names, job titles, rank, etc. It is a ton of pressure.
I’m more than a little excited about this opportunity and I hope it continues to go as well as it has so far.
Three things I’ve learned from this experience:
- Everything happens for a reason.
- Sometimes you HAVE to take a leap of faith.
- Be humble, gracious, honest, and hard working. It WILL get you places, despite what some people in corporate America want you to believe.
Here’s to new adventures!
