The last couple of weeks have been pretty huge for me and it has also brought on a lot of memories from the past 10 odd years. For starters, I’m leaving my first job (well first ‘real’ job) and it is a job which I have been doing for the last 11 years. Leaving a world I am so familiar with, is truly scary stuff. It is also the job that has seen me through so many milestones in my life, from my long distance relationship, to my marriage and then through my pregnancies and motherhood. While I don’t usually blog about my work. I felt that it is only right that I mention and pay a little tribute to one of the things that has shaped my life in the last decade. I honestly wouldn’t be who I am or where I am today without the mentors who have taught me so much in my last 11 years at the job. Without them, I would also not be able to progress and embark into the next milestone of my career and for that I’m thankful.
While packing my last 11 work years in a box, I also discovered some personal treasures. Couple photos from before marriage (I told you the job has seen me through tons of milestones! Haha)
Which brings me to my next huge ‘thing’. Do u remember the feeling u had when u had just gotten married and received your keys to your first house? I do. I remember feeling super pumped but at the same time alittle like an imposter. Or at the very least I felt like a couple playing masak masak/ house. As our family grew and we became parents, having our own little house and family started to feel alittle more ‘real’ and we found our rhythm and foothold.
We sold our first family home a week ago. As we embark on our next milestone/ journey as a family, the feeling is bittersweet. It is both exciting and stressful. While we are super excited to finally start a new home from scratch, with our kids in mind. We are also a little stressed up over all the logistics and ‘adult decisions’ we are making because they now do not just impact that young couple ‘playing masak masak’ but our young family.
Nevertheless, I think a few quote accurately sums up the last couple of weeks for me/ us and paves the way/ serves as a reminder every single time I start to worry or get scared again.
The last couple of weeks have been huge for me. It has brought on a lot of memories and I’m excited to make more awesome memories..
