Wisdom And The Workplace

Here’s the prompt for December 10th in the #reverb10 series by Susannah Conway

Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out?

This year wrapped up a heavily introspective phase of my life.  I have always been an introspective person, that won’t change.  But, the death of my mother catapulted me into a long-term stint of deep looking at myself from within.  That entailed an extended hiatus from 9-5 work after I was caught in roll-backs from my last job.  It’s been an amazing and much needed time.

This year I realized the need to re-enter the market place.  Once the decision was made the actual securing of a position was very effortless. Seems to be it was the right time.  My new job rocks!  My co-workers are awesome, the client basis is easy to work with and I am learning a whole lot!  I find myself excited to go to and be at work.  While I am still the type of person that easily lets go of work when not at work, for the first time in my life (in a 9-5 position) I have found myself ready and even eager to stay for extra hours here and there.  There’s a lot of work to do and I am jazzed by doing it well.  Something deep has shifted for me there and that’s good.
