I haven't truly written you since July, but what I thought was going to be the most boring year EVER, was actually very stimulating, enlightening, relaxing, stressful and insightful. I took this time to get in touch with myself, my husband and my son. It gave me time to reflect and recenter myself.
Now that I feel refreshed, I am genuinely excited about the challenges my work will amount. However, some things give me butterflies as if I have never stepped foot in an office as a recent university graduate. I mean the systems are different, the clients have changed, the processes have been updated, even my colleagues are not the same. I don't know when is the last time I calculated anything, let alone a project budget. The only emails I've been writing are to daycares and family, hopefully I haven't lost my professional demeanor. Worst of all, my precious daytime and afternoon naps, are no longer. They are a thing of the past which I have now been accustomed. I can always sneek some zzzs in at lunch time, but it will not be the same.
Can I really make it through an eight hour day of meetings, clients, colleagues and daily commute? You might think I'm over doing it and taking out my flare for the dramatic, but seriously it seems like I have been in another world for the past year. And most of all, I will truly miss my precious time with my special little guy.
