Change is difficult. It’s scary. Changing one thing often changes many things. It has a domino effect.
But it’s necessary. If we don’t change, we become stagnant.
Last week, I left my job as the online news and social media coordinator at St. Mary’s University, and I started as the marketing manager at Denim Group.
I struggled with the decision to leave. I liked my job at St. Mary’s. I liked the people. I liked the variety of work that I got to do, and the opportunities I was given.
I stuggled with the decision to take the new job. I’ve never been a marketing manager before. I came from a nonprofit. I would be a one-person department.
But I have to try. I have to do it, because I can’t turn down great opportunities. If I don’t at least try, I’ll never know if I can do it, and I’ll never give myself a chance to change.
So if you were wondering why the blog has been quiet these days, that’s why. I’ve been changing.
