A couple of weeks ago an opportunity for a new job presented itself out of the blue. I wasn't necessarily looking for a new job, but it was true that my current work-from-home (consulting) position was not providing much real-world interaction. When I read the posted job description, I thought (at the risk of sounding cheesy...) "this was written for me." Without hesitation, I typed up a cover letter and sent it along with my resume and positive thoughts. Hours later I had an interview lined up. I thought about the change I could potentially be making all weekend. My interview was so much fun, and hours later I was offered a position. I was ecstatic! My husband and I took a few days to discuss the opportunity and let the idea of change really sink in. Knowing that I just couldn't pass up the opportunity that was offered to me (it's not often that something so perfect just presents itself to you...) I happily accepted the position and will begin my new venture this Thursday. So, after 6+ years with the same company (and many different roles) I'll be moving on. I'm nervous. I'm excited. I'm anxious. Working from home was great -- I had the freedom to make my own schedule and be with Bean all day, I took days off whenever I needed them, etc. -- but, as I mentioned, the lack of coworkers and interaction was really getting to me. The change in my day to day routine is something I'm really looking forward to. I can't wait to embark on this new adventure!
Have you ever had an "ah ha!" moment when you realized you needed to make a change?
