So there I was, ranting (professionally, of course) to my boss about the amount of work that needs to be done before winter break and how it isn’t clear exactly what needs to be done, and what the plan is after winter break.
After explaining to him what the problem was and talking out how this can be tackled, I realized I just needed to talk to someone out loud about it. I’m pretty much going to do what I was planning to anyway, but at least now I know my idea made sense. So that made me feel better.
Then, with about 5 minutes left in our meeting he brings up something that should’ve been forefront on my mind.
“So about your short-term relocation, HR just mentioned to me that it ends on January 16th. Were you aware of that?”
Wow. How is it that I completely forgot that I needed to take care of that? I guess it just goes to show my work ethic, huh? I’m more worried about the work that needs to get done than my personal situation. Fortunately, my new boss seems to be my advocate and has already spoken to a few of the higher ups about the possibility of me staying here. Now I just need to wait and see what they have to say.
I’m not sure why, but it never ceases to amaze me how many people actually care for my well-being. If this doesn’t work out, I already know I’ve got another job here I can take, and there’s another one I can apply for. It’s seriously amazing how things seem to work out when you’ve got a positive outlook and you focus on the important things instead of worrying. Worrying = no bueno.
You know, this must be the change that I felt was coming. By the beginning of next year, I’m in for another life change. 2014 may have been the Year of the Unexpected, but I’m hoping 2015 will be the Year of Good Things to Come.
Here’s to completely embracing life, free of worries and being open to all possibilities!
