Monday Quote: Something new

No one can go back and make a brand new start, my friend, but anyone can start from here and make a brand new end.”
Dan Zadra

By the time you are reading this post, I will have officially started my new job. After so many years of a completely flexible schedule, I will be a member of the full-time employee world. Daunting.

Also exhilarating. I am wise enough to understand that life does not offer the opportunity for a new start, but I have one.  Leaving the place & people who have known me forever and watched me grow up, I will have the chance to make brand new first impressions.

Am I nervous? Of course.

Excited? Very.

Scared? You bet.

Confident about my decision? Getting there.

I’ve already written about my fears, so today I celebrate new possibilities with a new blog theme. Perhaps changing the look of alenaslife is not as dramatic as the real changes in Alena’s life, but I thought I’d keep with the theme.

Silly as it seems, I agonized over the new look.

Shouldn’t I just stick with the familiar look and feel? What will people think? What if I don’t like it a month from now?

Wait a minute…I’ve already asked and answered these questions about alenaslife. No doubt. No worry.

Today is a new day. A new beginning.

  3. You are on such a wonderful new adventure–I wish you the absolute best and know you will be fantastic!

  4. Good luck w/the new job. What is the job?

    • I’m the new Public Relations Coordinator for my old high school. First time back to full time out of the home since my oldest was born.

      • Going back to my old school – what song is that from?
        Will it be like Welcome Back Kotter?
        Again, good luck.

  5. All the best with your new job! :)

  6. Sure, I’m your mother, but that aside – I still believe you made the intelligent, and brave choice and that it will serve you well. I love you.

    It’s hard to take risks and make change (we’ve talked about this over the years). Everything happens for a reason. Or, that’s what I have told myself after not being at CP for 2 years. You will do great and you will learn the ways of full-time working and mothering. Just to to bed two hours later than usual, and you’ll be fine ;-). Thinking of you today!

  8. Lovely Post! Blog looks amazing! Best wishes!

  9. Best wishes on your new venture.

  10. Hope it goes well and you still have time to read :)
