Parting Thoughts

It's my last day here at the studio being the uber gopher (my nickname for my exec. assistant job). This morning when I woke up, I was tired, cranky, and quite reluctant to do much of anything when I got to work. But, you know what I decided I would go leave this position on good terms. I sent off many emails with vital information, organized what I could, and cleaned the place up. Though I'll be damned if I'm going to stick the trash in my non a/c car and take it somewhere to be disposed of as we don't have a trash bin in back!
So, this is it. In less than 10 minutes, I'm officially done and go back to being a piano teacher. This position has been a ride, great at times I learned a lot. However, in retrospect it was quite frustrating overall. I could point fingers, but, in the end what happened happened and things worked out the way did not because of one thing, but, because of many things. Most of those things, were completely out of my control. This last week has been really bittersweet for me. However, that doesn't mean I have to become bitter. I will make peace with this loss in time and in the meantime work my butt off to get to where I want to go. Life will improve because, by gosh by golly I'm going to make sure that it does. Darn tootin'. ;-)

It's so important to leave on good terms, so well done you!

And now, absolutely everything is a new opportunity! It's the perfect time to really think about what you want to do, where you want to: anything and everywhere!

And you're allowed to be a little bit bitter. At least for a little while. It's a big change - and one you didn't choose, so don't be too hard on yourself! :)

Congratulations on a last day well done! And a new month on the horizon. Now you can get on with putting all your energy into your dreams for the future as the old job passes away into the annals of your own personal history.

I wish you the best with your job search and the new orientation of the days of your life for now!

Oh my gosh! You're a piano teacher! That's so amazing! :)

I also like how you turned your not so great mood into something productive and optimistic.

Annelise- Thank you!! It was tempting to say 'Blech... eff it!' to everything, but, I couldn't start working on new opportunities without making sure I left things on good terms. I'm ready to start anew, a bit overwhelmed by the possibilities!

Pliers- Thank you for the encouragement and the link! Think it's something that'll be good to hear as I go about this new section of my personal history.

Anna- Thank you and welcome to my little piece of the blogshpere! I hope you come back often. And yes, I've been a piano teacher for the better part of five years now and it's been such a rewarding experience. Hope to see you here again. Take care!
