Back in December I originally posted What am I doing with my life?…a moan, a rant, a complete off-load post about my job situation and how hard it is to change your career later in your life.
Well readers, I have good news! I have secured myself a new job as a legal secretary in a solicitor’s firm in the market town where I live. I’m super happy about this; along with feeling scared, nervous and excited as it means moving from my current position where I’ve been for over nine years.
This is not without sacrifice on my behalf to have a go at the job I hope I’m going to love. I’ve had to take a cut in salary and to offset this I’ve decided to sell my car….my new job is less than 5 minutes walk away (I’m also insured to drive my daughter’s and mum’s car so will still have access to a car), but getting rid of fuel costs and monthly tax and insurance I should be ok!
EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE DIFFERENT!
The people, industry and day to day working environment – it very much feels like I’m leaving behind the security of my comfort blanket.
I’m currently working my notice period and then have a week’s holiday before I start my new position on July 18th. I need to keep telling myself this is a good thing….THIS IS A GOOD THING AND YOU CAN DO THIS!!! 🙂
