My life is going through a lot of changes this month, as are the lives of Upside of Downsized members. For example, in my last blog post on Jan 23, 2012, we had about 200+ members. Today, we have 550 members! In December, we had about 40 members. I'm very grateful for this surge of committed out-of-work/underemployed Sparkers - thanks to Coach Jen for featuring us! We are basically a "forming" team in the "forming-storming-norming-perf
orming" model of group dynamics.
Additionally, I have found a new job, FT, and it requires me to move across several states. I'm excited but also nervous. Thanks to EOWYN2424 and CLAIRELYSE for offering to step up as co-leaders. Between the three of us (and maybe others), I hope our group will fluorish.
Just because I got a job doesn't mean I am abandoning the group. I want to keep growing outside my day job. I want to experiment with Upside of Downsized as a place that will help me do so. CLAIRELYSE has some great ideas for team goals and activities that I hope people will enjoy. Please join us on the boards!
