Today is my last day! As I wrote yesterday, today is my last day at my current job before moving on to bigger and better things. It's sad, there's no way around it. I love my boss and my co-workers and when it comes time to say goodbye to them I fully expect to start crying. You can't spend this much time with a group of people and not get attached, nor should you- life is about connecting with people. So I'm fine with being sad today because goodbyes are important. And I'm celebrating every great memory I'll take with me from my time here.
I start my New Job on Monday! I'm excited and scared and giddy and nervous and a whole variety of other emotions. It's going to be very, very different from my current job and I know it's gonna take a while before I get a clue as to what I'm doing- but that's ok. I got to meet my new co-workers yesterday at a group supervision meeting and they're all really, really nice and every one of them offered- several times- to help me out in any way they can, reassuring me that when they started they didn't know what they were doing either and promising me that they'll help me get my footing. Plus they all said- again, several times- how happy they are to have me joining them. I think it's gonna be really good, on so many different levels, and I am just thrilled.
Karate I've been insanely stressed out this week, as is to be expected. Thinking about all the things I have to get done before I leave, packing up the office, trying to get the last of the HR paperwork for the new job faxed in, etc, etc. And I went to karate on Tuesday- my mind racing with all of these things and generally feeling as though I could explode. And when I walked out my mind was clear. Absolutely zen-like empty. I felt so calm and peaceful and just really freakin' good I couldn't believe it. I've marveled at this phenomenon several times in the past but it still seems like an all-out miracle every time. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I don't know how I survived so long without it. It keeps me sane.
How about all of you? What are you celebrating this week?
