Trust the Magic of Beginnings


Today, I started a new beginning. A new job. A completely new job that is different than anything I have ever done.



For the past 4 years I have been working retail management. It happened when a job in my field out of school didn't work out. After working part-time, it was a great option to tie me over until I found something. 

It was something I enjoyed the first few years. But the past few years I have been stifled and held back. It started to really take a toll on my self confidence and happiness. I knew it was time to make a change and jump back into what I went to school for. Even if it meant going a little bit backwards.

I went on interviews, had letdowns, lost hope, gained hope, more times that I could count. But then finally 3 weeks ago, a new door opened. It was a quick process and I was excited to accept.Is it a risk? Yes. But I am confident that this will be a place and industry for me to grow.

While this new beginning is exciting, it's also scary. It's completely new and it's in an office. Dressing myself is even a challenge. I bought my first cardigan last week. Yes, it's true. Putting an outfit together is hard work. I had maybe 3 outfits to choose from everyday if that. Now, it's a process.

Office politics and courtesies are not areas I am very familiar with. I am used to barked orders over a walkie. Not being talked to politely across the wall or through email. It's a breath of fresh air. And I couldn't be happier that I have finally started this new beginning and the magic it will bring.

  2. Yay! Congratulations on the new job! I know how relieving it can be to move somewhere where you are a better fit! I'm sure you'll catch on quickly, and learn the ropes of dressing for an office again! :)
