"When are you writing a new blog post and what is going on in your life?"
Well what a month it was!!! This was the hardest and longest month in years. Since the end of September I resigned, got a new job, new car, new phone and a new routine to work out for me and Gabi...
Having worked at my previous job for over 5 years, it was not easy to make the decision to move on. You become so part of your job and the people in it; you do become like family. The last day was so special. I was surprised with my favorite coffee, woollies brownies and during the day I received gifts from everyone and the most special gift was my fossil watch engraved with special words from my directors. Walking away that night and closing the doors behind me, I realized that some people makes a deep imprint in your heart and you will always carry them where you go.
The next morning I had to start with my new job... meaning that waking up at 7 is out of the question, now I have to get up at 5. I am still getting use to getting up so early... Poor Gabi must get up earlier too.
All I am going to say for now is that I am totally out of my comfort zone. I am up for the challenge but each day till now has been a challenge. I will be honest... I cried most days leaving work, not seeing Gabi for more then an hour a day made things even more difficult to deal with. After week one all I wanted to do is to go back to my previous job, knowing that the offer still stands on the table it would have been so easy to go back, but staying true to myself I do not quit. I did not give up and am still sitting here and adjusting to my new life, but I am positive. My sister send me the following quotes and remind myself daily what it means to move forward:
It was rough, everything that could change, changed and after a month I would just like to encourage each one reading this post and thinking that they need a change or needing to move out their comfort zone to do an Nike says. JUST DO IT!!!! I wish I could only share a little piece what I experience this past month... Nothing about it was easy, I am not going to smooth talk anything because it was hard. I am a strong person and giving up was more then once on my mind.
Adele reminded me daily that it will get better, it always gets better. You will adjust and each day you will learn to deal with the challenges ahead. To move forward and learn more about yourself you need to set you limits beyond what you know.
I am so proud of myself for making this move, even though it felt like a step back, I am moving forward, learning so much about myself and learning from the people around me. I am going to give this my all and I am looking forward to the road ahead.
So if there is anything that you are not happy about or feel like you need a change, please do it. Its like going for a walk, Taking the first step is the hardest part but it definitely gets better as you go forward.
When you make the move and you stick it out... only then will you realize what you are capable of. It is only impossible till it's done.
Before I say good night remember this: Nothing is impossible as even the word impossible says:
I'M - POSSIBLE!!!!
