New Beginning

I have been living on cloud nine since I found out I got the new job! Not just because now having a full time job will be much better for my economy, but also because I got a job I wanted. One that seem interesting and will allow me to learn new things and to develop and grow. Having changed jobs quite a lot over the last years I know that it won’t be all rosy. There are always things about your job that you will enjoy more and things that you will care less for than other things. And when starting a new job there are so many new impressions and new things to learn that you’ll be quite tired when you get home. But if this job is half as good as I have reason to believe it will be I will very much thrive at the new place. The fact that my new workplace is located two minutes from my house, on foot, will provide me with more time in the everyday than I have now, when I spend around 1,5 hours commuting to work and home again, depending on the queues.

Knowing that I will soon have a full time job has also made me appreciate the days during the week I don’t go to work. I don’t have to constantly check to see if there are any available jobs to apply to and write my applications. There is no more waiting for an answer back after I sent anything in. So now I’m just enjoying my time off. To congratulate me with my new job, my mum took me out to a nice lunch and treated me to a lovely pair of new shoes to wear around the office (and everywhere else I might want to wear them). We had a very nice time, eating, shopping and talking. Today I woke up and found out that the bread I intended on eating for breakfast had gone beyond stale, but instead of it getting me down I saw it as a sign I should  get a nice sandwich and a tasty freshly made juice on my way to the store to get some new bread.

Life is smiling at the moment and I hope this feeling will last for quite some time! Hope life is treating you all very well!

    I am so happy for you and can feel you bubbling with joy. Your delight in life is dazzling. At last you have certainty ahead of you and no more horrid waiting, waiting to hear about applications etc. Lunch with your mother sounds lovely. When does your new work start? Does that mean we will see less of you on here? Hope not! ❤️

  2. All good news. What job will you be doing?

  3. Nice! *fist thingy* And I must say, that juice looks awesome!!

    Congrats and All the best!!

  5. I’m so happy for you. A job that challenges you and makes you grow is so much more fulfilling than one that you can do by rote. My daughter has been on her new job well over a year now and she is still bubbling like you are. Some days she goes home and her brain hurts from learning and working but she is still smiling. I know how important work that challenges you can be. Days fly by when work is interesting. I took my daughter out to celebrate her new job too so I guess it’s a mom thing. We love our daughters to be happy. The happier you are, the more happy you get. :)) Giant hugs for you.

      Thank you for the kind words! One spends a lot of time at work and I feel that if you get the oppurtunity to do something interesting that time is better spent. Nice to hear that your daughter is enjoying her job.

  6. That sounds so wonderful. I’d love to be able to walk to the office. I’d gain about 8 hours per week of personal time. So happy for you, and best of luck at your agency.

    Best wishes for the new job. The right one, where you feel stretched and fulfilled, is really important.

  8. A job where you can walk home and eat lunch there! It doesn’t get better than that! Oh wait, don’t be staying home pretending to be sick! They will easily find you out!

    • masgautsen says:

      Heheh, it will free up some time working so close to home, I hope. I better not start pretending to be sick, to be fair I think I would have been pretty lousy at it any way.

  9. Congratulations Maja. I am delighted for you and wish you every success with your new job. Very best wishes. Kevin

    there is nothing like a new job to get you heart beating and your self esteem rising. I started a new job 3 months ago and you’re right about feeling tired learning all the new stuff but it’s such a blessing and I’m really happy for you!

    Congratulations on your new job. I am enjoying my days off during the week too. I’m getting lots of writing done.

  14. Congratulations to the new job and a fresh start. I hope you enjoy it beyond reason and that you have an easy transition. Good luck and have a great weekend.

  15. So much changes with a new perspective – even stale bread becomes an opportunity. I wish you great happiness with your new job!

    Congrats! So happy for you. Found and followed via Dream Big’s Meet and Greet.

  17. What wonderful news and lift to your spirits! Good luck. I hope you and the job are a good fit. Brenda

  18. Congratulations on your new job! I would love to work within walking distance of my home. I would save so many hours every week especially since I spend most of my commute bobbing and weaving through construction zones. I would have more energy to write. 😦

    • masgautsen says:

      Thank you very much! I will save 1,5 hours on a normal day even more on days with bad traffic or road work. I like to think I will use that time doing something constructive .

    I have been enjoying my life for the past 10 1/2 years. In Feb. of 2005, I moved back to CV to live with my soulmate. We got married in June of that year & life has just continued to get better everyday since.
    Despite losses (which, of course, can not be avoided), we are happy to have each other to hold in our sadness. We support each other in our passions and we now have so many friends and family that it gets overwhelming sometimes.
    But Angelo is very understanding of my need for alone time, so it all works out. 😉 ❤
