Happy Friday!!! :))

I've always loved Fridays. For many, it symbolizes the end of a long, hard work week and the start of a wonderful, restful, enjoyable weekend (hopefully). This week was long and draining and I'm so happy that it's over!! New beginnings!! TGIF!! I always look forward to Fridays because I usually write up a quick post and spend the evening catching up on all the blogs I follow - it has quickly become on of my favourite things to do! So that's my big plan for tonight. Tomorrow morning, I will be up bright and early to go for a run and return home for some "Scale Love" (hopefully)!! It is Weigh-in Saturday!

Anyway, this week, I made a very difficult yet important decision. I decided to accept an offer for a new job. It is quite different than what I am currently doing (and have been doing for the past few years), however, as I said in yesterday's post, I threw caution to the wind and went for it!! Changing jobs is something I have been considering for the past few months but never thought I'd actually get out of my comfort zone. You see, I know my job inside and out and can pretty much do it with my eyes close. It is a lot of work and requires a lot of my time, however, of late, I've felt that it was not as challenging as it once was for me. Changing would mean something new, fresh, challenging and something that would excite me!! However those same reasons also deterred me from making a move - something new, different, challenging was also something scary!!

I know that with my new found confidence (I was always confident - however that confidence has grown so much with this journey) and feeling that there isn't much I can't do as long as I set my mind to it, was disciplined and put in a lot of hard work and dedication!!! So I did it!! As soon as I made the decision to tell my boss, I felt great about it!! Excited and very much looking forward to the future!! It's really something!! I find that I want to do my best in everything and every aspect of my life!! I want to be the best mom I can be, the best wife I can be, the best employee and so on!! I no longer want to "settle" for anything!! I want to be challenged and beat those challenges! It's a great feeling.

So that's my big last day at the current job will be Sept 25th!! I am embarking on something new and very excited about it!! Anyway, that's it for now! I will be back in the morning with weigh in results!

Until then...

It really sounds like an eventful week. It is never an easy decision to change jobs, but it sounds as if you are going into this with confidence. Congrats on making the change.

Love feeding your fish! And, congratulations on making the decision to challenge yourself. Changing jobs is a big deal, so I sincerely hope it is all that you want it to be! Way back when I was in the work-a-day world, I changed jobs a few times, too, and always loved the newness and sense of excitement. Enjoy!
