Thanks to all who commented on yesterday's blog. As KELTIC-CARA said, I answered my own question. I knew I was as I typed it, but I guess I just needed some support.
I am stepping out of my comfort zone and now that I have taken the step I am feeling really anxious about it. I have been unhappy at my job for quite a while and I am finally doing something about it. After working more than 17 years for the same company, I accepted a new job this week and gave my notice yesterday. As the initial excitement of getting the job offer is starting to wear off, the self-doubt is starting to creep in. My new position is with a non-profit organization (the master's program has paid off). This is just what I have wanted. The people seem really nice. It is closer to home, too. But fear of the unknown...I haven't started a new job in such a long time.
I am so glad that I have all of you for support! I especially need to thank Debbie, Di, and Dawn, who have been with me through the whole job hunting process. I would not have had the courage to get this far if it wasn't for them.
