So I finally did it. I left my employer of 7 years and moved to a new job in the City Centre. I have had a week in my new role now which is why I didn’t have a chance to write any blog posts last week.
My new role has left me mentally exhausted, but in a good way. To be able to make decisions again, to be able to think of new ideas and to act on them straight away comes as a hugely refreshing and much needed change.
I did love my old job, I really did and I wouldn’t have a bad word to say about it. Other than I just outgrew it. It was time for a change, and this came at the perfect opportunity for me.
It feels like being back at school again. Having to think about what I can and cannot do. Trying to be really switched on all the time and really efficient in everything that I try and put in place.
Naturally everyone wants to make a good impression when they start a new job; however, I tend to put so much pressure on myself.
One thing in this new role that I am determined to do is to have fun with it. It is really creative role, and I think being creative comes naturally if you are enjoying what you do and having fun.
This last week, I have got home and got in to my pyjamas as soon as getting home, crawling in to bed after a long and demanding day.
The good thing is that I bounce of bed in the morning, excited for the day ahead.
Little man hasn’t suffered at all. It has just taken some adjusting to a slightly different routine but I try and pick him up as much as possible now so I can spend some time with him before bed time in the evenings.
I am excited now for another week at work; I cannot wait to be another week further on and to get my feet just that little bit more under the table.
One thing I am determined to do is to not let it affect little man. To not let him see me tired and irritable at the end of the day. I will give it everything I have until 7pm when he goes to bed….and then I can be the person that lies on the sofa in her pj’s watching the soaps and switching her brain off.
Have a good week everyone, whatever you have planned.
