Got a New Job!…


Got a New Job!

If you think you can’t, you won’t; if you believe you can, you will. (Author: Unknown)

My year of progress unfolds bit by bit. I started my new job on Monday, May 14, right after Mother’s Day weekend. Leaving my last job was bittersweet. I never knew I had such an impact on people in the office until my last day. I got cupcakes and brownies, from my supervisor, including three cards signed by almost everyone in the office. I got a recurring theme among co-workers who commented to me that I made their day with my smile. Who knew? I sure didn’t, but it was nice to know I left on a positive note.That was Friday.

I already was in work mode for my new job and started the following Monday. New to the position, I was flooded with an overload of information and already felt overwhelmed. I once thought, “What did I get myself into?” but I knew God was at the steering wheel and driving me towards the direction of progress. I went through a lot the last three years: emotionally, financially, and even spiritually, but 2012 is already showing progress and I have God to thank.

I’m so excited to be starting the job after one week and one of the perks is I get Fridays off. Not sure how I’ll spend that extra free day, but for now I’m just thankful to be in a job I think my skills are catered to. If you’re wondering, my title is executive/communications assistant for a president (can’t say which).

Right now, I’m thinking of what I’m doing to do for the rest of the day and looking forward to better days ahead.

    Woohoo!!! CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS!!!!!!!!!!!
    Sounds awesome!
    Is it a permanent? or contract?
    Don’t think that you are/ will be overwhelmed, as you will be twice defeated… Just order what you need to do and take it one step at a time!
    (Hmm..I should take my own advice.. I’m feeling particularly swamped today.. drained really, and being very incompetent at the juggling I’m trying to pull off >< )
