A New Beginning

As I am writing this I am on a work conference call (obviously not really paying attention) and all I am hearing is words with no meaning and people talking for the sake of talking. I am sure the hosts think this is a valuable way of spending time but to me this is a pure waste and I feel that a visit to the dentist would be more pleasurable than this!
I have come to the conclusion that the best cause of action is for me to move on as I feel I have not got the power or energy to keep going against the system any longer. I also fear that if I stay much longer I will end up like a chronic complainer and I much prefer to flow downstream and lead a life of less whinging and moaning.
I applied for a new job a few weeks ago and was invited to an assessment last Friday. Generally I don’t get too nervous before this type of event although there is an element of it. While on the train a voice kept telling me to write a letter to my parents assuming the interview had already taken place. I got to the location 30 minutes early and decided to have a coffee. I found a coffee shop where I could sit outside. I spent a few minutes watching people as they were walking past, which I could happily do all day, but the voice at the back of my head kept telling me “Write the Letter”!
I decided to go with the voice;
“Dear Mum & Dad,
The Interview went extremely well. The people assessing me were so friendly and welcoming and I loved how they were with their staff. It was a very structured interview but it felt more like an informal chat than an interview. Now to the part you have been waiting for; They have offered me the job and I am starting in August. Thank you for all your help and support. Lots of love J
I was offered the job yesterday. I have yet to find out what they are offering me from a salary point of view but it feels good to be wanted and I love the way they work and the way they treat their staff . I am excited at the prospect of a new beginning. and I feel a sense of relief. A sense of moving on to a happier path.
