It’s going to be a long day…
Ah….transitions. They are never easy. And I’m in the midst of one right now.
I just gave notice at my job yesterday. And I feel like the worst person in the world. A bit of back story….
I originally went to school to be a teacher. I love working with kids and introducing them to new ideas. I always loved school and wanted to share that passion. Well, long story short- school is expensive and teaching is not the “safest” position to be in right now. Plus, I discovered that I’m a bit too independent to work in a school system. I want to teach what I want, when I want, how I want…. so I decided to take a break from school; work, and see where life takes me.
So for the past several years I have been a full-time nanny. And it’s been great. I love working with the kids and have really felt like part of the family. But in that time I’ve discovered a passion within me; to teach others how to build healthy joyous lives. So I studied and got my personal trainer’s certification which I’m ecstatic about, but now the tough part…. moving on. I gave notice with my “family” yesterday and I feel like such a traitor. I know it’s for the best. I know it’s the right thing to do. But that doesn’t make me feel any less like a big pile of dung right now.
I am so excited for where my life is headed. I have taken a full-time position with the company my husband works for- a running store in downtown Sacramento. I can’t wait to “dip my toe” into the fitness industry and soak up as much knowledge as I possibly can. But still…
Change is hard no matter if you know it’s right or not.
How do you deal with change? Transitions?
Love and Joy,
17 Though the fig tree does not blossom,
and no fruit is on the vines;
though the produce of the olive fails,
and the fields yield no food;
though the flock is cut off from the fold,
and there is no herd in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
I will exult in the God of my salvation.
