The SUO challenge this week was Get Well Cards……and I sorta made this one for myself, cuz I need to GET WELL AT WORK!!  I did not expect starting a new job to throw me for such a LOOP!!  New systems, new software, it didn’t sound that bad, but I spent my first four days in a FOG and then Friday, CLICK! After a good long talk with myself I stopped fretting and started diving in, and it seems to be coming together now.  But I think anyone who thinks more highly of him/herself then they ought, should just start a new job, that’ll knock you down a peg or two!  It’s so hard to go from “knowing it all” to being like the new idiot on the block!  I can tell I’m going to love it once I get the software down, but boy those first few days were difficult.  The lady who is training me, my new coworker, does not believe in babying people, and in the long run, I know I will be thankful for that, because guess what, it makes you rise to the occasion, and I think I am doing just that!! I had that talk with myself where I said come on, Karen, it’s what you have been doing for SEVEN years with different ICONS!! It’s not rocket science here……you can DO this, and then I did!!  But since pride comes before the fall, let me humbly say that today looks to be the busiest day on the schedule so far, so I am not being haughty here, I know there are tough days ahead until I can run the office smoothly and efficiently like I did my last one…..but I am ready for the challenge!!  Until next time………Karen

    Karen, I'm praying for you as well. Leaning on God and friends will help. So sorry you've had such a difficult time acclimating to a new job. Continue to move forward one step at a time and call on God when you stumble or have a tough day. Sending hugs and prayers.

    Karen, I love, love, love your card! What a great idea to make one for yourself when you need a "pick me up"! I'm sure that soon you'll be on top of all the challenges that come with getting a new job! God bless you!
