I have struggled to think of the appropriate title for this blog post. I was between “So Long, Farewell,” “Moving On,” and “Six Years Come and Gone.” I settled on the one that I used because it is the most appropriate. After six years working at the same company doing the same thing day in and day out, I am leaving to start a new adventure. Doing the exact opposite of what I am currently doing and I couldn’t be any happier to do just that. The best part is the “interlude,” a two and a half week stint with no work and no babysitter. Thankfully, it is the summertime so our biggest dilemma is going to be do we go to the pool or the beach. This is the longest amount of time since maternity leave that I have had with Chase and one of the longest times I’ve had off of work and I am going to enjoy every second!
The end of my current job is bittersweet. It was an incredible company with unheard of benefits including a pension and five weeks of vacation. I had an amazing manager whose management style is ideal for me. I have made lasting relationships with people from all walks of life and man, I am going to miss them!
But there’s a thing about life. It is not about staying in one spot and getting comfortable. It is about change. Moving on and learning something every single step of the way. It is about getting better, and taking chances. Not being afraid to try something new. Not being afraid period. So I am opening a new chapter, taking that risk and hoping in pays off. Yes, I will miss all that I’ve met at my old company, but I am ready, and despite my best efforts, I know how quickly the next two weeks are going to fly by.
Wish me luck in my new career! And maybe (maybe), you’ll be hearing from me more often. At least for the next two weeks : )
