The only thing that is constant in this world is change. Be that as it may, a lot of people take any kind of change as simply disruptive and an unwelcoming idea.
I may now be one of those people to some degree. When I was younger, I welcomed change just like changing outfits. Testament to that was my career moves and company transfers in an effort to get to where I wanted fast. Getting pirated by another firm with a juicy offer and a career advancement was the norm. I was an aggressive twenty something, who had a specific objective to reach at the age of twenty five. It was very detailed and straight to the point, that I was going to declare myself a failure if I didn’t achieve it. I was driven and unyielding. No wonder that at that time (in my early twenties), a lot of people thought that I was in my early 30’s, and I only got those business suits to blame.
I don’t regret any single career move I made in the past. Looking back, I would not have been the person that I am today if I didn’t do what I did. I’m now a secured stay at home wife who is no longer power hungry and unyielding. I’ve been there and done that. I must say that I have peaked and achieved what I wanted in my professional life. Now, it’s time to relax and smell the roses. As you see, I have survived the biggest move in my life – and that is moving from the Far East to the West. That has been the biggest move I’ve taken so far. At my age, I would hate to move cross country if I can help it, but the promise of warmer weather is enticing. When that happens, I’m sure we can peruse those professional cross country movers.
I don’t even want to think about moving at this point though. Just the idea of it gives me stomach cramps. You’ll know why, when the time comes.
