New Horizons

new-beginningI’ve been hinting at it on my personal Facebook and Ware is the Vodka?!? Facebook page, but the time is finally here to break the news to all my bloggy friends.

My last day at the mothership is today. At this moment, I am finishing up my last transitional documents and packing of my desk.

It’s bittersweet. It’s heartbreaking. At the same time it’s a much needed change.

I have spent 3 amazing and fulfilling years at the mothership. There have been ups and downs throughout this period. During this time I have met volunteers that have welcomed me with open arms, took some warming up to my big personality, and others who rather I would’ve never showed up at the mothership. I found my calling with volunteer management and was able to thrive greatly in a role that I was honestly made for. The skills I was able to develop and hone will forever play a part as I continue to advance my career. With that, the volunteers that I have been able to build relationships with will forever be cherished.

What I will say about the mothership is that I have gained a number of lifelong friends. These are friends that I do not know what life would be like without them. They have seen me angry, in sheer tears of confusion and frustration, and at the point to where I wanted to walk out – through it all they managed to keep me together. My work wife completed me and life seems to be dwindling away as I understand that I will never had another relationship like this again.

As this week as slowly and slowly inched by, I’ve realized that I am taking a monumental leap of faith.

A new job. A new team. A variety of new opportunities.

The mothership will forever have a place in my heart. My work wife will forever be a lifelong friend. Team Wicked Sick will forever be the greatest team to grace the mothership since sliced bread and deep fried samoas. Wish me luck as I take on this new challenge – I’ll need it.

Here’s to the new world!
