It’s a New Dawn

The end of almost two months of unemployment is nigh. And it feels damn good.

I’m the kind of person who cannot live without a challenge – and challenging myself doesn’t quite cut it. I like to deal with constraints and deadlines, to see how obstacles make me grow and summon resources I didn’t know I had. To meet people’s expectations and exceed them from time to time. Yes, you may roll your eyes and think “overachiever”. I won’t hold the truth against you.

Don’t get me wrong, a period of calm is a good thing. I learned a bit about myself in those two months, stripped my life of unwanted habits and realigned my priorities. Most importantly, I rested.

Then I got bored. Not desperately bored but eager to dive into new challenges.

Right on cue, a great job offer was presented to me.

This morning, I called back the company that is soon to be my new professional home and took the job. Apparently, it kicked off my future employer’s week nicely and same goes for me. I’ll probably know my start date by the end of the day.

Now I can take advantage of the renewed energy and excitement to get a few thousand words written today. 😉

“It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life foooooor meeeeeee! And I’m feeeeeling goooood!”
