Today is a year since I’ve stared my current job. When I look back on the last year, I look back on a year of blessings. While there are the inevitable stresses in any job, I truly enjoy what I do. Even better, I love my coworkers with whom I’m blessed to spend 5 days a week.
Out of curiosity, I looked back on my journal entries written in the last few days before I started. I expressed 2 concerns looking forward to this job, both of which were non-issues. The first was my lower back pain that flared up again last January. Whether because of added exercise or the fancy chairs they provide for us, I’m not sure, but my back pain hasn’t once been an issue. In fact, it’s been months since I’ve felt the desire to take over-the-counter medicine for the pain. Such a blessing!
The other concern was that I would withdraw, instead of engage with my coworkers. Now, it seems so foolish to worry about that, but I did. From day 1 I’ve made friends and have enjoyed as those friendships continue to blossom and deepen.
Here’s to another great year!
