New job, too!

It’s been about a month since I started my new day job. I’m back in the industry I love, doing what I love to do. I’m so happy! But, I haven’t gotten to this point without a struggle.

If you didn’t know, about ten months ago, I had also accepted a new position, leaving an organization I had been with for seven years. It was a hard decision, but in order to keep developing my skills and move up in the world, it had to be done. I just wish I would have listened to my gut.

I had to make the move for my own professional development, but man, I wish I would have skipped that organization, and just come straight to my new job. I know it was a stepping stone that led me to where I am now, but it has been an interesting year, to say the least.

Now, I’m in my new organization with the previous just a distant memory. I’m happy to be training on software and building the cloud based infrastructure for a large division. It’s great to be back in the industry I love!

All this to say, sometimes you have to choose to go through hell to get to paradise.

If I had listened to my intuition those many months ago, I may never have gotten to where I am now. I could feel it in my soul that my previous organization wasn’t right for me, but I did it anyway. I chose to go there, even with red flags flying, because I knew I had to gain momentum. I had to start the process of moving, even though I was sure it wasn’t going to be a forever home.

I’m glad to have had the experience because now I know exactly what I don’t want and how to get back to everything I do.
