This year has started off with new and exciting beginnings. I am most proud and excited for my new promotion I recently achieved at work. It was something I worked hard for and when I felt I was ready and the opportunity presented itself, I applied. Leading up to my interview was nerve wrecking, as one can imagine, but with the support of some amazing colleagues, I went in with my best foot forward. As I get ready to start this new venture, I have learned that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. Of course I have always spoken of this, but I have not myself gone after something, holding myself back by listening to that voice inside me. Am I ready? Can I do this? Making changes to better your life is always a scary thought, but if we never go after what we want, we will always wonder. I have challenged myself in ways even I didn’t know I had in me, but so worth it, to now begin a new journey. I hope that for anyone reading this, you go after what you want. In your personal, professional and every day life. Nothing is unachievable unless you don’t try. New beginnings are always scary at first, messy in the middle but so worth it in the end.
