Starting something new can be scary, like how I feel right now and have done for the past few weeks actually (it was such a coincidence that this is the quote I pulled out of my Happy Jar). See, I start my new job today, in an hour and 30 minutes after this post goes live. It took me a while to get here – searching, applying and three nerve-wracking interviews to be exact but, I made it. And I didn’t get here by staying in my comfort zone.
I actually really loved my comfort zone. It was a happy, friendly, fun place, and it made me feel good. But there was always that niggly feeling that I needed to move on. Comfort zones tend to do that – you like them, but you know that they’re not enough.
It took courage to do something about it, and despite the fact that I am nervous, I know it will be better for me in the long run. Yes, I miss my friends and the team that I’ve built such a bond with, but I had to do what was right for me and my future.
Here’s to new beginnings and coming out of my comfort zone.
Have a great day!
