This isn’t exactly an ordinary moment, but something that has pretty much stood out for me as a highlight this week. At the beginning of the year I mentioned on my blog that Was stepping into a new role at work. One I was really excited about. It turns out that, that role wasn’t actually for me.

It’s a strange feeling when you think you’ve failed at something. What I didn’t realise was a better opportunity was about to be given to me. Since the beginning of the year, I have juggled two departments, covered sickness and generally felt a little under pressure. I’ve lost quite a few hours sleep and have picked up work from home. This I see as a huge challenge, but I was starting to flake, in the space of two weeks, I was beginning to feel a little bit tired and fed up.

I was spoken to this week about how it wasn’t working. How I was feeling and coping. I should off been taking over a role after Christmas. As I said earlier, sickness coverage was what was needed more. It also came to light, that my hours were not providing enough coverage for the client. It was agreed that I would move department. I was gutted, I won’t lie. I was pretty excited to get my teeth into something that I could take control of.

Then it happened, I was asked to take over a role, which is pretty big,  its communications and PR. Something I really want to learn and understand, and I am being given the opportunity. I am so excited, I have so so much to learn over the next three weeks. I’m being trained from the colleague who is currently in the position, so alot of time with her is on my agenda.

I would love it if you joined me and the fellow bloggers who link up. I’m looking forward to joining in weekly and hopefully find lots of new blogs to read along the way!

    congrautlations. It’s a prime example of as one door closes another one opens and I’ve experienced it myself a few times. I hope you get on well in your new position.

    Congratulations on the new role! I can imagine being upset at the loss of that first opportunity, but it looks like an even better one popped up.
