Around this time last year, I posted about my tough decision to make a big change, job (and lifestyle) wise. Today it is exactly 2 years ago since I made that choice, so it seemed a suitable time to share my post again. In the last year even more has changed: I’ve said yes to job opportunities that I was willing to try, and turned down offers that I didn’t think were right for me. I have no regrets about any of those choices-even the uncertainty of agency work-and now I am about to go full circle (so to speak) and commence a permanent job again. If someone had suggested this particular job to me 2 years ago, I’d probably have laughed at them and said no, but having had lots of different experiences since then I jumped at the chance.
We can never be quite sure where life will take us, know whether our choices are right or not, or predict what is around the corner. As always with a ‘new’ thing, there are lots of what ifs. What if the job isn’t right for me? What if I am not ‘good’ enough? What if the times they saw me do the job well were just a fluke? But without giving it a go, I will never know. So I shall step into the (almost) unknown and do my very best, knowing that someone has faith in me and therefore I need to believe in me too.
