Looking Forward to 2020

In the past month, my working life has been turned upside down. I was given a nudge about a year-long opportunity to work in another part of the company which really interested me. I applied and was successful. It all begins in early January.

This will mean significant changes in my professional and personal life for the year ahead. I will be travelling a lot more, meeting new people and encountering different challenges. I admit to some initial trepidation about it all. What was I thinking, moving away from what was familiar, relatively reliable and within my capability to something unknown? But my mind couldn’t leave it alone, and I knew that if I didn’t at least try that I would regret a missed opportunity.

As things become clearer, I am increasingly excited at the prospect of stepping off solid ground into something quite different. I don’t think I was aware of how much I needed change until it was underway.

I’m looking forward to an extraordinary year in 2020. How about you?

  1. Sounds like “adventure” is going to be your theme word for 2020. Congratulations on seizing the day and going after something new and exciting. I hope it exceeds your expectations! *Audentes fortuna juvat!* (fortune favors the bold!)

  2. Exciting news and year ahead for you! Reading your post I was reminded of one of my favorite quotes “There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky, And you ask “What if I fall?” Oh but my darling, What if you fly?”
