New job, new adjustments

For those of you who don’t know, I recently started a new position.

Actually, it is.

It stretches and challenges me in many ways (including a 40-min commute each way, which luckily has not caused any dizzy spells yet, but does lead me to worry about it on occasion).

It also means sitting at a new desk.

Within a few days, I brought in photos, cards, and small possessions.

Those small changes have helped tremendously.

But…Even better…

I have people around me I can trust to stick up for me. I have advocates!

Ain’t that the truth for so many of us?

As we’ve talked about before, as a woman who works, I feel that there can be certain social norms and limitations in the workplace.

But in the past week since I started this position, I have noticed: I have people on my side!

And that’s just about the best way to start the workday.

Yes, Emma Stone, quite so.
