12 Thoughts On Moving And Starting A New Job

It's a big world out there, one discovery at a time

12 Thoughts On Moving And Starting A New Job
Pension Rights

It's the first day of work, in a brand new city. You have packed up all of your belongings and drove cross country for a new adventure, that came unexpectedly. If you are like me the night before is full of emotions and thoughts of the worst possible case. Not only that but in a new place where I don't know a soul. I just recently came to a new city where I had one number of a friend from the past, not someone I knew well. Though, its that time of year when people are graduating, switching jobs and starting a "new life." Being in a place brings self discovery, joy, anger, loneliness but above, all self-growth.

As we begin to transition out of the life of being in our parents home to being independent, and doing this thing called "adulting" is something that allows your perspective to broaden in a way that you could never imagine. For me, yes I have spent that last year living in three different sets of places for different periods of time and meeting new people but its different now, all of my friends are spreading out across the country and are going through this as well or will be soon. So, as we go into this season lets be there for one another.

But first, here are some thoughts of the first day of work in a new place as well as how we can conquer it all.

1. What do I wear?

2. What do I wear?

3. Do I look nice?

4. Will I fit in? Did I make the right decision?

5. Is this job for me?

6. Will they like me?

7. What will I actually be doing?

8. Will I make friends?

9. How do I get around? (Whether it's bus, walking, metro, or car!) Discovering the places around you can always be an interesting task.)

10. Will I find a place of community?

11. What can I learn from this place?

12. What's unique about this place?

At the end of the day here are some things to think about:

1.Explore, Explore, Explore!!!—You don't know what you will find until you take the leap of faith!

2. Discovering Yourself

3. Opportunities all around

4. Don’t Stress.

5. Be yourself!!!!

Now, here is to an adventure!

Where to start...... Let me start with the cliche that life throws us curveballs and what we do with it is what counts.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
