A new door opening

I don't do well with change. In fact, I loathe it. And while I always come around and adapt...I think change is hard for many people. I've been wrestling with some changes internally and now writing about them has somehow become cathartic. So here's what's going down...

I've worked the longest stint of my career at one company. A wonderful company with wonderful people. I cannot say that enough. But the time has come for me to move on. And that decision came with deep, introspective thought, guilt, a lot of vacillating, discussion, guilt...did I mention guilt? But I did make the decision and I did verbalize it recently to my boss. Who just so happens to be a dear friend. This is where the guilt plays out. Outside of one other time in my life; I do believe this was the hardest thing I've ever had to do as an adult. And I'm here to tell you being an adult really sucks sometimes.

After literally being sick about it for quite some time...I put my thoughts into action. And so that door has closed. And it's bittersweet. And I feel a little sad, too.

But I also know a new challenge awaits. One that will impact my family in a positive way and let's face it...as a working mom, you're top priority is your family. I am excited and nervous and overwhelmed all at once {great diet by the way if you're looking to shed a few pounds} but I believe it is the right thing to do.

And isn't growth something that should remain a constant in your life anyway? I think it should. And this girl needs to grow some more. And learn. I'm excited to learn!

A new door opens...and I'm ready to "create" some crazy-good work.
