Here I am, yet again, with something on my mind.
Yesterday I had my last day of work in the office where I have worked for the last year.
It has truly been an incredible experience, being my first job after my graduation.
As I have previously shared, I decided last year to move from Amsterdam to Delfzijl, Groningen.
Also I gave up working in the club, and embarked on a new adventure: working as an call center agent for a customer service department of a non-profit organization.
To me this was a very big step, because of the idea I had of myself.
I held on to this idea of me being the party girl, always having fun, living the fast life.
And all of a sudden I had discipline, sleeping patterns, ate regularly, and even a serious job. The kind of job that I said I would never get. And you know what else? I had fun doing it! I enjoyed it! This experience has been so rewarding and filled with beautiful lessons. The biggest might have been that we can be who ever we want to be. AND we should let go of who we think we are, in order to become our true selves. Because we are so much more than who we think we are. We are beings filled with endless potential.
This year I’ve gotten to know my own qualities even more. I love working with people, and to me it does not matter whether that means hanging there coat while they go clubbing, or helping them on the phone with questions about their study loans, or even helping my coworkers with finding the right answer for the question the customers have. The red thread through all of it has been my love for people. My passion for making people feel good about themselves, creating good vibes. Because of this passion and my comfortableness with myself that has been growing and evolving, I have made wonderful connections at this job. The people I have worked with really touched my heart and have become friends even.
And now it is time to let go again, embarking on another journey. The journey to making more changes. And it hasn’t even been a conscious decision this time, but something that came to me. I was pretty comfortable where I was at, but the Universe had different ideas. I got offered a new job as a social worker, the career I have studied for. So ofcourse I had to say yes. This is the job I had imagined myself to have somewhat of ten years ago. And now it’s time.
I’m incredibly thankful for the beautiful experiences this year and also the chance I am getting to follow this dream of mine. Sometimes it is hard to walk away from something that feels good and this is also one of those moments. It really is bittersweet saying goodbye to something you cherish. On the other hand I really peaked and therefore it is time to learn some more somewhere else. I know it is all for the greater good. It has to be the way it is. Time to go. Time for changes.
