Apparently, when I do something, I do it big.
I have had a lot of change in my life, as I have shared with you. So what's one more thing?
After 6 1/2 years with the same company (where I really grew up both personally and professionally) I went to an interview because it sounded interesting. I didn't think anything would come from it. Within 8 days, I had an extremely generous job offer with a fantastic company with the potential for a lot of growth. And, after a lot of thought and worry, I took it. I had to resign from a company I love, that has been so generous and kind to me over the last 6 1/2 years. I had to leave one of the few places in my life that was comfortable and stable.
Seriously, I can't stress to you all how afraid of change I have been up until December. Now, I feel like I have turned my whole life upside down and could not be more excited about what the future has in store for me over the upcoming months.
My cousin (hi Amanda!!!!) dubbed 2011 The Year Of Erin. I am putting myself first, instead of others, worrying about what is best for me and then acting on it. I have to say, I am really looking forward to finding out what the rest of my year has to offer.
