The last few days have been a whirl wind of new things for me. New beginnings in my life are taking place and and have begun. I am loving every single minute in this new phase of my life. In a recent post you can read it here I talked about how I was given the wonderful opportunity of being a SAHM and how after two years of doing this I found out it isn't what makes me happy or what I want to do with the rest of my life. As well Princess only has one more year of high school and then will be leaving the nest and it's time I do something for ME.
I took matters in my own hands after finally making this decision to look for a new career about one month ago and am so happy to say I found a job. Not just a job, but a career in which I think know I am going to be extremely happy in this new phase of mid life. I won't say exactly who I am working for now, but will tell you they are a Fortune 500 company that provides customer assistance for AT&T. They are a huge corporation with many branches throughout the US and fixing to open one up internationally. This newest branch I am working for is still being built and not even up and going yet. It's that new. I was one of about 100 chosen for now and they will be hiring up to 500 total in the coming months.
I will be a customer service rep. and this gives me the chance to work days, climb the ladder and go into training eventually, and best of all, I will be helping others. Out of all the jobs I have had in my life the one thing that is obvious when I thought about them is the fact that I have always chose them based on loving to help others.
For the first 9 weeks I am in training and it is so much fun. I had forgotten what it was like to be around other adults, have adult conversations, and to laugh, smile and enjoy being around people once more. For these last two years I had become a recluse of sorts. I am so much a people person it about damn near killed me. For the first 5 weeks of the training I am working from 3:30 pm to midnight. Now this is taking a bit of getting used to somewhat. I am NOT a morning person so really it's a good time for me. Then after the 5 weeks I start the 4 week training with actual calls.
The facilities are to die for as well as the benefits. We have a break room like no other I have ever seen. Computers for personal use, lounge areas for cell phone use, and a corporate kitchen. We also have a private gym on site for the employees. I'll finally lose this weight I have gained in this last two long years. Can you hear the excitement in my voice?????
Mid Life for me just took on a whole new meaning. New beginnings are sometimes the best things we can do for ourselves and our happiness. I see blue skies now on the horizon.
