So today is New Year's Day. This is going to be a BIG year for me. It will be a year of exceptional change. Moving to New Hampshire has me both excited and a bit fearful. New city! New career! After almost 20 years living in the desert of Phoenix, AZ, I will now be in the New England area. It's an area rich in history so I'm excited about delving into the culture.. It's also an area that has a more liberal and progressive population than Arizona so I am looking forward to being around more like minded people. But I am hesitant about the cold and snow.
Leaving Xerox after nearly 20 years also has me nervous, but it is something that really needed to happen. I have not been happy for a few years now. It is company that did many good things for me, but the joy ended some time ago. It is not the same company I started with. I hated the direction I saw the company going. But I was comfortable. Very comfortable. Not wanting to step outside of comfort zone is what allowed me to stay in a job that I was unhappy with for so long.
So 2017 is going to be a year of tremendous transition. However, I am up to the challenge. I will walk into this new chapter with enthusiasm knowing that I can conquer any obstacles that come my way. I have a very support husband. He will help me get through this. "I am smart. I am kind. And I am impotent." I have been equipped with every tool needed to be successful. So I welcome this new year, my new city, and I look forward to beginning a new career. Bring it on 2017 cause I'm ready for you!
