Today starts my last week at my current job.
At the beginning of the month, I accepted a position that will take me back to my design roots! I am so excited to start this new journey and get my creative thinking cap back on! With that said, change is always a struggle, regardless of how happy you are about it, and it is a challenge.
Work becomes a HUGE part of your life. You spend the majority of your time there, and you build strong relationships with people. It's difficult to walk away from that. It's hard to say goodbye. You always say, "I'll be back and stay in touch!" but once you move on, that becomes harder to do. You build new relationships and grow close to a new community of people. That certainly doesn't mean you forget the others!
I've made a few career changes in my day - not all of them by choice, some by necessity, but each time it was for the better in one way or another. It was a step in the right direction. Each experience builds on the last, and each time I learn something new about myself and my capabilities.
Here's to a new chapter, and a new experience ahead! This week will be tough, but I'll get through it. Prayers are appreciated. :)
