I know I haven't even completed a full week at my new job but I already feel refreshed! I am looking forward and haven't taken a look back. I obviously still have the "new girl" status, but everyone seems to be very welcoming! My new company is super organized. I'm in organizational heaven! They are teaching me the way the company does things, and they communicate communicate communicate! I love it. Nothing is a secret! I share an office with the sales manager, which I was extremely surprised about. I figured I would have an itty bitty desk sitting in the middle of a room somewhere. Instead, I have a back office with a view! I can take a break from my work (which I now have 5 projects I am working on.. five!! I've just completed my 3rd day there!) and watch the cars pass by on one side or take a look the other way and watch the birds play in the trees. We are on the top floor, I see the shadows of the birds that hang out on the top of the building. I wish there was a way for me to put bird food outside my window. :)

I am very glad that I took that leap of faith and stepped out of my comfort zone. Sunday night Mychael and I were in the car. I was super quiet. He told me he was proud of me. As I've stated before I hate change. He thought that I would have just stayed with my old company because it was comfortable, even if the offer and perks of the new job were better. He told me when I told him I accepted their offer that he was shocked, he couldn't believe it. I was shocked when I took the offer as well, I was floored when I walked into my boss' office and handed him my resignation letter. I apologized to my boss for resigning, and I walked back to my office screaming in my head what did I just do? I had planned on staying with my old company for years to come. The last two weeks at my old job my mind was racing. Was I making the right decision? What if my future would be better off with my old company? What if I didn't like the new company? What if this is a bad decision for me to make right now as a soon-to-be newly wed? What if my boss hated me? Wait. What if my new boss ends up hating me? What if my guys in the warehouse hate me now? What if...
When was the last time you took a leap? What was it? Have you ever looked back?
