Yesterday, when I got the letter informing me of my new job, there was a part of me that wanted to throw the letter away and keep my life the same. I hate change, and the positon I recieved is legally considered temporary. It’s scary to walk away from something stable, for something that may not be permanent, although all of the applicants were assured that lack of hours is not a problem for the current employees in our position.
I’ll blog more about my current job, and why it hurts so much to leave later, but I really want to share some words of wisdom my 5 year old son offered last night. I was sitting in my recliner with tears streaming down my face as I thought about my impending goodbye’s. He asked why I was crying, and I told him, “Mommy got a new job, and she’s scared and a little sad”. He looked at me, with caring in his eyes, came over and put his arm around me and said, “Don’t worry mommy, they will teach you how to do your new job when you start.”
Kids are so amazing, and some days, they teach me much more than I teach them.
