Well today I joined the ranks of the employed once again! I started a job with a local Ameriprise office here in Marshall as a planning assistant.
The small group of people that I am working with are all wonderful - very welcoming and helpful and I feel like it will be a good fit.
Of course I am a bit intimidated about all that I need/want to learn to be successful. I always put big expectations on myself and I need to remember that I am now learning new programs, schedules etc and it will take time.
And you know one awesome perk about this job? I live so close that I can run home for lunch and relax a little and get back and it just takes minutes. I haven't had something like that for YEARS. I made it to pick up the kids by 5:05pm and was home and getting dinner ready by 5:30. I don't miss the commuting that we did for so long at all!
Overall I am so encouraged by today and will continue to work hard and learn and hopefully grow from this experience as well! I am very grateful that God provided this job for me and I hope that I can be a light to those I work with!
