About a year ago I started reading a book called, 48 Days to the Job You Love. Fewer than 48 days later I took a job that I really hoped I would love. I did, but it was fleeting love so it was more like infatuation. 1 year and 48 days later I have a job that I really think I love.
The past week has been a lot like a dream, I’ve had meetings with people, I’ve planned things, I’ve set things up. I’m back in the driver’s seat of my life! Have you ever been out of control of your own life and destiny so long that when you relinquish that control it’s so exhilarating that you can hardly breathe? That’s where I am!
In the 48 Days book I read that just because someone is good at something doesn’t mean that they are suited for it. I really struggled with that and looking back I should have considered my hesitations a lot more. When I told my boss (es) that I was leaving the Dot Com, they were very complimentary. They said I was a darn good sales woman and that they had some great plans for me in the near future. They had a lot of nice things to say that I wish I had heard during my time there – it would have done a lot for my moral.
Tomorrow starts a new work week for me and I can’t wait! The feeling of excitement over a day at work is such a great feeling. If you’ve never had that feeling, I’m sorry.
