I'm Crazy Enough to Think I Can
It's been 4 weeks that I've been back to work. Four weeks of total torture and actually four weeks of hell. I knew my first day back that this just wasn't going to work for me. So I decided not to complain and moan but to just do something about it. I wrote a resume (the first one in 14 years) and fired it off in response to an ad I saw on line. Well low and behold, 3 weeks later this sister chick has a new job. To offer a little background, I worked for the same small company for 13 years and loved it. Two years ago the owner suffered a stroke and 1 year ago the company was sold to a very large national company. From day one I was miserable and should have made a positive decision to move on a long time ago. There was so much other drama happening in my usually very predictable and boring life I just couldn't mentally make that leap.
This move is really lateral and a wash financially. But the job itself sounds perfect for me. It's a very small family owned company and they are implementing the software program I have worked with for the last 6 or so years. I will be instrumental in that area as well as my skilled area of inter-modal transportation. They seem truly happy to have found me (actually I found them). And I hope to have many happy years with their team.
I also had my first home jewelry party last week. I would say it was a sparkling success and I have another one booked for next month
So this was just a quick update on the happenings in my life. Not to shabby for an almost 55 year old using a cane!
Think positive ladies, miserable is not a way anybody should spend their working day. Especially as those days seem to be longer and longer. Don't be afraid to make a change. And sometimes it just takes a little crazy to have the confidence to move forward.
I'll try to do an outfit post tomorrow so I can link up with VM. Will have to see if I can manage my time efficiently the rest of the weekend.
