Today was the last day in my current job and on Monday I get to turn to a new chapter in my life! I'm staying at my current company but am taking a different role in a different area. It's a very welcome change and one that I've been anticipating for a long time. I think this new chapter will bring me a change of pace (hopefully a slower one), some peace, and give me an opportunity to learn some new things that can help me grow in my career. I'm excited about the challenge and really looking forward to Monday when I get to turn the page on this chapter I'm currently in and start a new one! Time for fresh beginnings! So very happy!
During the course of the last month, I probably underwent one of the most stressful times in my career. Not sure why I was so spun up about things, but I was hooked and just couldn't let things go. I was challenged with people saying things about my character and my intentions and criticizing my skills and accomplishments. I know this is more about the individuals saying things and not about me, but it still put a damper on the excitement that I have about starting a new job and new adventure. I'm so glad that this day finally arrived! Thank you God for being with me during this very stressful time! I'm so glad you were there to listen to my prayers and know my heart and my intentions. I hope the people will be able to find peace in their heart and realize that they are only being infected by the Devil and his evil ways! What I know for sure...I'm free of all this stress and strain! So very happy to have this chapter closed! Thank God!
Smile: What made me smile?
There were some very special messages from people today saying good bye and wishing me well. While I have to say that I did get a slight bit choked up, I was very appreciative of the well wishes and kind words. Helped to sugar coat the other challenges that have come my way over the last few weeks.
Celebrate: What do I celebrate?
I celebrate what I've been able to accomplish in this current role. I took nothing and worked through others to create a good program that is better off now than when I found it. I know that I did the best I could and while there are things that I'd do differently and wish I had done all together, I'm very pleased with what I put into place during my time there. I know that someone will come behind me and find many things that we don't do, and will implement new changes that I would have liked to do, and I hope they do succeed, but I also have peace that I did a good job and am very proud of what results were achieved, in spite of what others may think.
Love: What do I love?
I've mentioned in the past that from time to time a little red bird appears in my life to show me hope and in my opinion, it is God's presence. This morning, I was a bit on edge, due to lack of sleep and just fet up with the people issues and when I was getting in the car, I noticed a red bird in my driveway. It stayed there for a few moments while I got a good look to make sure that it was red and not just my poor eye site. It was exactly what I needed to see this morning and I was so very happy to see that God was showing me that all is going to be alright. Was a great way start my day! Thank you God for being a visible presence in my life!
Thought for the day: Every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end.
I'm excited about the future and looking for to this new beginning! A FRESH new start. It's going to be a good year!
Cheers and best wishes!
