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.

  1. 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!


I'd love to hear what you think.
