These past 5 months have been filled with some pretty big changes, to say the least. At the end of November, I packed up my belongings in a few suitcases and took a chance on a new job and a new city. Scared, doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt. I was terrified. I was anxious. I was excited. I was everything all at once. But I moved. I took a chance on a new city that I’d soon make my home and that in itself took some guts.
Fast forward to March. I left my job. It didn’t make me happy. The environment was far from what I wanted and I left. For some time, I fought with the question of 'why'. Why am I in Charlotte? Why did I pick this position? Why is this happening to me? There were days where I felt like I made the biggest mistake by picking up my life, packing up my belongings, and moving to a new city.
In less than a week after leaving my job, I started a new gig. I couldn’t be happier. Surrounded by passionate individuals, I realized exactly why I’m in Charlotte. These past few months have presented a few pot holes in the road, but nothing in life comes easy. How you handle those bumps, those pot holes, those obstacles – that’s what makes you grow. Even though my first job in Charlotte was less than ideal, it brought me here. That piece of silver lining is something that I’ll forever be grateful for.
