A New Chapter

I have been working in the same position for 4 years. It’s something that I love and am very proud of. I’m good at what I do, knowledgeable  and confident. I have experience in my field and am quick with answers, results, and reports.

But I needed a change.

So when I was offered a new position a couple weeks ago I jumped at the chance.

I accepted before I could convince myself that I couldn’t do it. Because I knew I would, I knew I would say no if I thought too long; change is hard, it’s scary, and it’s overwhelming.

So after I hung up the phone with my boss, and after I had said yes, I took a deep breath and let myself question my answer.

I didn’t suppress the worry, I didn’t ignore the nerves, and I didn’t let go of the anxiety.

Not yet.

Because that’s part of the process.

I wrote down all of my questions, I processed my anxiety, and I absorbed my worry.

I’m trying something new and exciting. I’m on the bridge to a new adventure and it’s unfamiliar territory. I’m paving a new path and I have no idea where it will lead me.

But I have the skill, I have the knowledge, and I know that my boss has the confidence in me.

So with my anxiety acknowledged I go forward into a new chapter but I layer on top of that confidence, intention, and ability.

I know I can do this.

I just have to try.

every try
