I honestly didn’t think that I would be saying this so soon. But I have seriously good news . . . for me! (Waves hands in the air and says “woop woop”) . . . Okay, I promise that I won’t do that again, like ever!
Let me start from the very beginning, the story isn’t that long. Around 2 months ago I made that crazy leap to leave the place that I had worked for 3 year and 10 months. I did have people in my team and friends tell me that I was super crazy for doing this, even after I had left, people were still telling me that I was mad. I just felt that it was the right time for me to move on. Even if I didn’t have anything to move on to . . . yes, that seemed scary to me. But . . . life is for living, and if that means taking a few risks, then take them.
Did I think that I was going to be looking for another job well into the New Year? Maybe . . . More likely, Yes.
Did I think that I would eventually have to settle for a job that would be good for paying the bills that I secretly wouldn’t enjoy?
Did I worry that I might have been very stupid to leave a job I was good at?
I was super worried.
Imagine my shock, surprise and jaw dropping wonder; when I was interviewed for two very similar jobs and was offered both of them! They were both jobs that would lead me to working up to my dream job, the people who interviewed me and the teams of people who I met; were all really nice. I could easily see myself in both places. I never would have thought when I left my comfortable job that I was in for 3 years and 10 months (not sure if I have said that yet) that I would be offered two amazing opportunities! In my mind I hoped that I would give myself a month off and that I would have a job by the time August came around. I’m still in a little bit of shock that it actually happened!
Never in my wildest day-dream; and there was a lot of them, did I think that I would get two job offers! Like does that really happen to people? Did that really just happen to little old me? . . . Yea it did!
So I get to spend the next month making my new work wardrobe . . . because I can and really want to.
And I have the step on that career ladder that I have been searching for, for a very long time, in a company I can see myself in for many years and will get that all important chance to progress within the company of my dreams.
I’m going to have a look at my Bucket List and tick a few things off and think about what I can look to try in the next couple of weeks.
I feel like my life is well and truly starting and am super happy and über excited! I can’t wait.
