It’s off to work I go…
Well here I am Sunday evening…the eve of my first full week as a consultant.
My week ahead couldn’t be looking more different to last week – and I’m left wondering how it all happened so quickly.
I have signed up two clients…and thankfully have a heap of work to do. I’ve printed business cards, created a letterhead, worked out a time management system, and I’m still wrapping my head around an accounts system (and know why I’m not an accountant.)
it’s all coming together rather nicely. Definitely Divine intervention at work. But it does I feel like I’m on a rollercoaster – one of those really scary, adult only ones. All topsy turvy – not really engaged, instead just along for the ride. Anyone know where the stop button is?
And what a ride
From here on the rollercoaster, my daily life suddenly looks very different too.
No more hour long train/bus combination journeys just to get 5km into the city. I can now roll out of bed and onto my new MacBook – easy. This will mean more time for the kids before and after school. Win-win for everybody.
No more packing lunch – the kitchen is but a few steps away, and my favourite cafe just a few blocks.
I won’t need to dress up or wear heels everyday just to look a little taller.
I won’t need to engage in office politics (and for that I’m truly thankful).
I wonder how long till my newfound freedom starts to feel a little lonely. I do enjoy people and have met so many special friends at work (you know who you are!)
I wonder how long till I catch myself doing a load of washing during breaks – or quickly dashing out for a spot of grocery shopping. (Oh please save me…)
Will I feel like I have a real job at all?
It’s off to work I go
Bottom line is, I won’t know till I try.
So, without further thought, I’ve buckled my seatbelt and…..
….It’s off to work I go!!
I’ll keep you posted.
