A new week filled with sunlight breeds new optimism but with a huge knot in my stomach as I sign a contract of employment.
Times are changing. Priorities change. Families grow up and I found a job that uses my skills and will hopefully work with family life. It isn't a return to big corporate corner office that I once thought was all I wanted. It is a very small company, but with big ambitions and opportunity for me to start my second career.
I'm anxious about being employed again, about getting up to speed with my responsibilities and about juggling life, but I am also excited about being recognised as an employable person with skills. Knock backs dent your confidence and this has come at just the right time.
Clearer skies ahead.
Stepping out from the shadow of my family.
A blossoming new career.
The return to lunch hours.
Mid week confidence wobble.
Ascending a new career path to a bright and funky future.
Hoping that the new job only looks scary and will actually be as docile as Misty Moo.
My next post will be written as a part-time working Mum. Wish me luck!
