A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to start fresh with a new employer, and in a brand new field. The change was so drastic that I worried about it for weeks before I initially started. It was the first time since I was fifteen that I’ve been that anxious about making a great first impression.
Now that I’m here, I feel like I’m picking up on things more quickly than I would have given myself credit for. This job is potentially one of the best things that’s happened to me in a long, long while. The place that I work at is a self-contained community. When I say that, I mean it literally. If power went out all over Pennsylvania, my place of business would be able to sustain electricity for another three months. Beyond that though, I’ve never seen so diverse a people who are this friendly to each other.
There are so many parallels between this place – this event – and the inspiration that I’m given when working on anything. I don’t have to worry as much about trivial things anymore. That’s a welcome insight to any creative mind. To all of those who have just recently started a new journey, good luck. And to all of those who are waiting for their door to open, patience and faith are good companions. You’ll find your way!
