I start a new job today. I’m a bit excited. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and experiencing new happenings. I wish I had documented each time I started a new job and all the thoughts, emotions, and questions that seem to surface. I think starting a new job kind of reminds me of when I was younger and the thrill and uncertainties that go with starting each new school year. I have a lot of the same questions….will I make some nice friends? will I have the knowledge to do well with each “test”? what should I wear the first day?…..and even do I need to pack my lunch? and hope I don’t don’t get lost on the first day (thank you google map).
Isn’t it funny how life kind of parallels itself? We think something is a brand new experience but yet there always something there that is familiar that helps us get through the difficult or uncertain moments…nothing much is really brand new to us. I sure wish I would have remembered that at times in the past when I was overwhelmed with nervousness and anxiety about beginning a new task. I guess there is always the new people to meet and get to know……but that is also often the best part.
I hope I will have some new experiences to write about too. This is my 49th post and my commitment was for 52 weeks. Perhaps, time to shift gears and write about something different. I’ve been thinking about a few things on my bucket list….I still want to write a book or screenplay….maybe this is a good place to try it out. Do You have any suggestions? I wonder if there is some kind of Blog Game? I would write a line and then another person would write the next line and so on. That would be fun. Sure would make for interesting reading I bet and make writing a lot more fun….no one person would have the pressure or burden of writing the whole post.
Well, got to go pack my lunch and get ready for work.
Hope you have a good day at work today too.
I think it’s going to be a great day!
I love new adventures and learning new stuff, so I’m very excited.
Wish me luck. See you next Monday.
The best of luck on your new endeavor. You are a lot braver than I am when it comes to starting a new job. You make it seem like a cake walk. Wishing you a successful Monday. 😊
Thanks Bea. When I started writing today’s post, I was a bundle of nerves….but the writing helped put everything into perspective and I started my first day very differently. I continue to be amazed at how writing down one’s thoughts can often change how we are feeling.
I hope it was all you’d hoped for!
Thanks Tony. It is really the job I had pictured I would be doing, but it turns out it is “exactly” the right job for me. Thanks for your good wishes. I’m looking forward to learning lots of new things.
good luck Nancy. I’m rooting for you (as always). I owe you a long letter (hopefully soon) as I was really reeling after getting your last one some time ago. Thinking of you often, with much, much fondness and great regard. I know you picked out just the right outfit for your first day on the new job. Hope it was a good day and not too overwhelming. Love, Eileen
Awww! You’re so sweet, Eileen. I think of you often too and always feel you are “in my corner” in life. My new job is going to be great…..working with some really kind and caring people. I’ll try to send you a more details soon. Take care and bunches of hugs sent your way. You Matter to Me. Smiles, Nancy
Wow! This is awesome! I am so happy I found you and I hope that you know who is as well. I think he is! I don’t understand blogs really…so I guess I need to tell you this is from Beth.
You’re sweet Beth. Good luck at your new job too. I’m sure you’ll do great. Let’s stay in touch. Smiles, Nancy
