Sorry for my infrequent posting as of late. Changes are a-brewing on my end and I’d like to get them off my chest, hopefully helping me to move forward with less anxiety.
First, my mom has moved back in with us. She has a pretty serious eye infection that threatens her cornea. She already has some damage to it but until the infection clears up, we’re not sure to what extent. Of course her anxiety and sadness about her possibly losing eyesight has been internalized by me.
Second, I made a pretty big career/life decision. After 6 years with the same company, I’ve decided to take a position at a newer, small marketing firm in downtown Durham. You know when you’re confronted with a fork in the road (of life) and you’re not sure which path to take? One thing that helped me move on from the company that I’ve known from my entire post-collage career is that I was tired of the institutionalized dysfunction. I won’t go into detail here but it was making me pretty upset. We are all adults here, and should be treated as such.
I’m scared of moving on but at the same time, I’m ready for it. The new position is with a marketing firm, and I’ve never had to work with clients before, so I’m worried that I won’t be good at it. But then this new place must have seen something in me and must have faith in my experience in marketing, to choose me for the job. Oh well, I start next Wednesday Feb. 26th and even though I know it’s hard work, I’m hoping that it’s rewarding and that I learn a lot from it.
Now, onto fashion….
I also wanted to share an outfit that I wore a few weeks ago but never posted. Graphic/animal sweaters are so cute and I’d like to share mine:
Thanks for listening to my little rant. If you have any advice about dealing with new job anxiety, I’d love to hear it!
Much love to all of you! Hope you all (regardless of relationship status) had a great V-day or just plain ol’ Friday the 14th 🙂
