I am changing jobs… and industries (from grocery to health care). To be honest, this is a change I am terribly scared of. I am leaving a team that I love. I’ve never had the type of support in my professional life that I do now. Most are near my age (also something I’ve never had) and have grown into friends. My boss may even go down in history as the best boss I will have. Tears have ben shed over the thought and realization that I am leaving this team. But that’s what bars are for. Happy hours!
Clearly there are things I wanted to change given the fact that I was even looking in the first place. Most of those reasons I don’t really care to get into on such a public arena – again if you know me, you know.
I will mention the pro’s of the new position. My commute will be a third of what it is now (hey-o!), which was one of the main driving factors for the change. The impact of my position will be felt locally in Cincinnati among those who need it the most. This is something that I don’t even think was on my radar until we moved back to the area and I feel in love with it all over again. I love the fact that I will be helping people with my work. At the same time, there is now a life behind every number. Will I be able to handle approaching data in the way? It will be hard at times, to say the least but I know this is what’s best for me….and I’m freaking excited!!!!!!
I want to thank my awesome blog designer, Brittany, for posting this quote. This came at the exact time I needed to read these words!
