I feel like I'm on a rollercoaster. The car has been going up and up and up and up these past few days... And I've just gone over the top and I have to hold on with everything that I have. I can't yet see if it's a ginormous drop or just a little dip. But, I'm starting to feel the air whishing through my hair.
I got a job bump. Not a little one. I'm so excited. And I'm also scared. And I'm also sad, because my boss (who I have worked with for 8 years) isn't going to be my boss anymore. He was a really awesome manager. I'm excited because I'm stepping into his very big shoes - while he goes and steps into bigger shoes. Our management chain is also changing - which will be interesting. So, I'll have a new manager. I'll be managing managers. I'll be managing an organization. It's what I've been working.so.hard.for. I'm confident that I can lead our team to be absolutely outstanding. However, I'm not as confident that I will have the flexibility that I have now (I can take off early to take my kids to their things). I'm a star with my current manager, I'm hoping that I will be a star with my new manager - but it's going to take work to build that credibility that I've worked for the past 8 years to build with my current manager. So, it's a little scary. And - I feel like I'm just holding on getting ready to take the drop on the rollercoaster.
And on the flip side - I'M SO EXCITED TO DO SOMETHING NEW, but not too new. I feel like it's a whole new fresh start. HOLY SHIT!!!!! (sorry Pam.... It's the only thing that really fits. :))
