Change is something I have learnt to embrace. It isn’t easy, and I still find it a huge challenge, but I have learnt that change offers opportunity.
This post is a very special Wednesday quotation as the quote in question aptly describes my life over the last few weeks. The lesson for me has been that ‘making big life changes is scary, but what is even scarier is regret.
Let me back-track a little ….
Three years ago I chose ‘change’ as my word of the year, and experienced some extreme changes. Over that year, I learnt to adapt and accept that things cannot stay the same if you want to grow. 2013 was the year I moved to Westport to take up a new job back in the corporate world. It has been a fabulous experience, and I have really loved the challenges that working in corporate finance gave me. I am proud of how much I have learnt, and extremely grateful to the Westport for welcoming me.
Now it appears that I need another change in my life to continue my journey. I am delighted to share that I have a new job, with an exciting Irish company. I will be based back in Galway and am excited about the new marketing challenges ahead.
It is scary, as I will be leaving the comfort of a job I know, great colleagues, and of course the wonderful friends I have made here. Westport is a town I have grown to love.
I am not moving yet, as I like to take my change slowly. First the job, and then the move I, tell myself.
On the plus side, I am delighted to be returning to beautiful Galway. My son, my sister, lots of friends old and new and of course the fabulous attractions all await just a county away.
If you are facing change, be brave. I know it isn’t easy, and a little part of me is dreading it, but there is another part of me that is very excited.
Thanks for reading.
