I start a new role within my organisation tomorrow and, in many ways, it’s my dream job. I’m excited and anxious and every possible emotion in between. The post will involve a lot of writing, reading and editing. Three of the few things in this universe that I’m any good at. I’m even moving office and being allowed a creative freedom I’ve never experienced before. There will be lots of high-powered meetings and discussions. Did I tell you I was excited?
The anxiety is of course a by-product of change and stepping outside of my comfort zone into the relative unknown. Being offered the position was a huge compliment on the part of my employers but it also brings with it a sense of responsibility which will necessitate me stepping up to the plate big time. It will involve long hours and learning new skills. I’m a bit unsure but hopeful I can quickly pick up what I need to know.
An added bonus is that I can work from home more and be much more flexible with regards my working routine. I’m looking forward to longer, but looser, hours where my creativity and resilience will be tested. I feel that I’m up to the challenge but I guess only time will tell. I’m determined to make it a success and regular readers will know I can be a stubborn Stephen when I put my mind to something I really want to achieve.
Unfortunately I’m not allowed to tell you exactly what I’ll be doing but I’m determined that it won’t interfere with my blogging and writing outside of office hours. I’ll do my very best to remain an active presence on all my favoured social media platforms. So you can’t get rid of me that easily ha ha. Feel free to comment as to what you are feeling excited about or looking forward to in the coming week. We could all do with cheering up in these uncertain times.
