It’s been a while since I’ve given you an update on my life, so I’m here to fill you in on something BIG that happened this week.
I started a new job!
I hinted that I was moderately frustrated with my previous job in March. I just wasn’t feeling inspired or fulfilled by my job. Part of that had to do with managerial changes that were taking place and once the changes took effect, I lost any sort of mentorship at work and felt very stuck. Each day felt the same and I wasn’t making any progress
I went through a long interview process for a great job and just when I thought I might get a job offer, the company placed a freeze on the hiring process. This happens from time to time so while I wasn’t surprised, I was terribly disappointed. I was really feeling suffocated by my job.
Eventually, a job offer did come through and it was the news I had been waiting for. Resigning from my previous job was hard. I found that while I was ready to move on, I was also a little afraid.
Change can be scary and I was comfortable; unhappy, but comfortable.
Comfortable is fine feeling for some things: a pillow, your desk chair, even your couch, but it shouldn’t really apply to the BIG things. Big things should be more than comfortable. They should be comfortable AND fulfilling, exciting, challenging etc. There is nothing wrong with comfort until it is the only thing keeping you where you are….
