Some of you may know that I start a new job today. One could say it is a dream job. One that would make Oprah proud that I plan on doing something that I thoroughly enjoy and that I consider is worth getting up out of bed in the morning.
But as human nature has it, after 3 interviews over the past 2 weeks and one very long holiday weekend, somehow, I managed to convince myself that I was not getting this job.
Yet my sister had, what many sisters have, intuition, foresight and a little bit of ESP, sent me a new pair of shoes and a very pretty bright pink top for my first day of work. Honestly, I thought she was just being super supportive. Geri, I love you so much for that!
Giving notice at my current job was a bit like the final scene from An Officer and the Gentleman.
Friends and co-workers hearing that I was giving notice, raised their arms in the air, waving them wildly. If each one wasn't attached to a headset, they would have stood up and cheered!
One friend said to me, "One down! It will be me next!"
I wish all of you all the best of luck in finding new employment!
On to happier times...and bigger paychecks, too!
