FINALLY!


Wednesday, June 18, 2014

It's official! As of July 12th, I will be in my new position! Gulp ... sigh ... giggle ... all of those are totally how I'm feeling right now.

GULP - That's a big change! Wow ... I like to be challenged ... I want to grow ... but WOW!

Sigh - Leaving behind 22 years of one career field to step into a management position outside that career field is nostalgic, no matter how you look at it. I'm going to miss certain parts of dispatching - no question about it!

Giggle - Can't help the joy that bubbles up when you find out that it's YOU. After all the hard work, the preparation and the stress ... It's YOU!!! The downside of that is the others who aren't feeling joy tonight. My heart hurts for them. I've been on that side of the equation as well and it is so painful. emoticon

One of the best pieces of advice I got during the prep for this interviewing process was "Always know that YOU are the only one who really cares about YOUR career. Nobody else is going to be committed to your career ... just you". True statement ... I'm super excited for the challenge and the learning process ahead - Yet, I'm intimidated by it too! Either way, I'm looking forward to winding down one career and launching another one in the next few weeks!!! The bonus to all of this ... my appetite is nil today! No nervous eating, no craving chocolate or sugar ... just satisfied! I love that the best!

    Congratulations Eda!!!! I am sure your department will have a tough time filling the space you leave after spending so much time in such a high-stress job. You'll have to spark mail me what/where you'll be working. I'm interested!
