The end of a chapter...

For those of you who don't know, I love to read. I'm the best at tuning out everything in the world around me to immerse myself in a good book. Writers often end each chapter with a cliffhanger. Something to make you keep reading and yearn to find out what's next. They also make the end of each chapter a place to stop and think about what you've read before you move on. I'm thrilled to say that yesterday was the end of a chapter for me.

The past 3 1/2 years I have worked for a great company called Logica. I loved my job. I was good at it, I worked with a great team and I felt like I was contributing my part. Unfortunately, in August, Logica was acquired by CGI. Logica was a 41,000 person UK company bought out by a 31,000 Canadian firm. You do the math, that makes one big company and a huge transition. Let's just say the transition didn't go so well. I was left floating around for a month. I was pretty much told that I wouldn't have a job and to just "sit tight". Not so easy if you ask me. I began looking around, but not to eagerly since I had no clue what was going on.

Fast forward to the end of September. After a few internal interviews, I actually landed a position within CGI. Unfortunately, it wasn't the position I was looking for. I knew that I could do more than what was offered to me and it just wasn't fun. Luckily, I had some leads since I had started looking around in August. I continued on with some of my interviews and was finally offered a position with Sirius Solutions. I was elated. I was getting a new job, a raise and more vacation days. It's a win - win all around if you ask me! My office is also closer to my house. This girl doesn't even have to get on a highway to get to work anymore!

Yesterday was my last day with Logica/CGI. Thursday is my first day at my new job! New month, new job, new changes in life! You know what that means??? I get today and tomorrow off to get my sh*t together and relax. I need some relaxation in my life!

Remember these posts about stress and anxiety? The transition from Logica to CGI really messed me up. I was stressed out to the max and just didn't know what to do. I am so thankful that all of that is past me. I hate being a Debbie Downer. I'm beyond excited to venture into this new chapter in my life. I know this may not have been the big change some of y'all expect from my post yesterday. I hate to disappoint, but I'm still not pregnant. Give me a few more years and we'll talk about that. For now, big career changes are what's coming my way and I can't wait!

Now I'm off to go spend a little quality time with my momma! It doesn't get much better than this!

Until next time...
With love and God bless,
