Well…I have been off the past week as I am about to transition to a new job tomorrow. This past week has been one of much needed solitude and rest after the mad rush I have been a part of the past 2 years My last job was one of much chaos, much tears, and much stress. It was definitely a learning experience and I have grown tremendously both personally, but especially professionally. It gave me great confidence in my professional ability to deliver great results to the customers I support and that I can truly do good HR work. Taking the job was a risk and a leap, but with God’s help, I made it through with flying colors. Even though it was one of the craziest places I have ever worked, if given the opportunity I would still make the same choice. But, now as I leave I am happy to be able to be relieved of the stress and many complaints this last job doled out on a daily basis. I am happy to work less hours and spend more time with my family. I am ecstatic at the idea of less travel and very ecstatic about the notion that when I am off work, I am truly off. I no longer have to worry about my cell phone ringing at 8pm at night while I am trying to put my kids to bed. I do not have to worry about the next fight that may break out at work that I will have to referee. I could go on and on, but why? That chapter in my life is over now and I embark on a new chapter tomorrow. I am not going to utopia because there will be challenges I am sure at the new company. But, one thing is for certain I will not be at my old job tomorrow. I am excited, but nervous about this new chapter and how it will unfold.
