I hardly know how to begin today’s post. My whole world has been turned upside down this week – in a wonderful way. On Monday morning, I was offered a job at ABVI (Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired). It is a good job. I am very excited. And nervous.
Sometimes, you work really hard to accomplish something or get somewhere and nothing pays off. I have been there. This situation was almost the opposite. Everything seemed to move quickly and smoothly. I didn’t even have much time to feel apprehensive. I just moved through the process. It might sound silly if I say that it was as if God was guiding me the whole time. But I felt calm through the whole process. I always believed that, whether I was offered the job or not, everything would be great.
I was calm as could be all through the process. Once I received the job offer, however, I began to feel nervous. As I said in a post a couple of days ago, change is hard. Even positive change rocks the boat and shakes things up. I am safe and secure at Nazareth. I love my job. Now, I am running to embrace the unknown. I am a little nervous. But I am very excited and happy. It feels like I was guided to this position. I think that it will be good for me and I think that I can do some good for the organization. I feel like I am facing a new beginning, a new opportunity, a new path. I am excited to take on this new role. I do not have to be afraid of change. I am ready to grow.
