Well. It’s done.
I jumped into my first day at the new gig and guess what?
I freakin’ LOVED IT!!!!
It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for: That dare to be great moment, career-wise.
Feeling inspired and passionate again about what I do for a living (PR for those of you who don’t know).
Feeling uncomfortable (but in the best possible way).
I won’t lie – I was very nervous this morning, and even had to nix my planned AM workout due to lack of sleep the night prior (don’t worry – I got that STS workout in tonight, instead). But, once I arrived, I felt welcomed with such open arms that the nerves instantly passed and I KNEW without a shadow of a doubt that this was the right career move. Because, let’s be honest here, even though I was all gung-ho about the new gig, a teensy-weensy piece of me wondered if I’d show up on day #1 and realize that it was the wrong decision.
Phew. It wasn’t.
It’s like a huge, gigantic weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I now know that I’m just where I’m meant to be. I’m blooming right where I’ve been planted (Ah, Joel Osteen messages never get old, do they??). And I’m psyched.
Couple notes to self on the new gig, however:
- Working out in the AM is going to have be a priority vs. extra sleep…my commute is significantly longer so even with less than normal traffic today (some companies used today as a holiday), I’m still home later than usual. Which means practically keeling over during my workout tonight from hunger pangs. Lesson learned, indeed. Keep those PM workouts to a minimum, or at least to something “doable” after dinner (like Core Fusion). Good thing I’m naturally an AM workout fiend usually, anyway.
- Carrying around TWO blackberries (vs one) is gonna be interesting. I either need to suck it up and cancel my personal blackberry service or I need a larger purse or bag to fit both into neatly. I’m thinking I may need to make a little splurge once I get my new paycheck…are ya with me on that one??
- I’m gonna need a personal GPS to wander the new hallways without getting ridiculously lost. It’s like a giant maze. Good thing I at least know where the bathroom and kitchenette are located. That’s all I need the first week at least anyway, right? 😉
