Today’s prompt comes from Meredith’s Daily Angst.
Change of heart: Did you have a change of heart about something or someone in your life this year? What or who was it? Why?
I think the biggest change of heart that I had all year long was related to my job. In July and August I was actively looking for something else and feeling frustrated because I couldn’t find anything that would pay me nearly what I’m making now. While money isn’t always a consideration, and I’ve learned the hard way that more money isn’t always the answer (see my move to Kentucky that turned out OK in the end or our move down here that is working out OK now).
I don’t know if I would have had the change of heart if my old boss hadn’t lost her job. I’d like to think that if our corporate team had provided more oversight and had been involved in our site to the degree that they are now and she had remained in place, things would have been OK. But. When it comes right down to it, I think I would have still been looking for something else. Who knows how long things would have been OK or even if they would have been OK.
I’ve said this before, but with a regime change, I breathe easier. I may not always been excited about going to work because there’s so much work to be done and there’s a ton of pressure, but I don’t dread going to work. I’m willing to give it my best (and then some) to see how things are going to play out. I wouldn’t have said that 6 months ago. I’m looking forward to 2013 and where things are going.
