1 Year anniversary

Today it’s a year ago that I started working in my current organisation.
It is one year since I was convinced that I was going to be fired within two weeks. I seem to have survived for longer than that, I’m pretty chuffed about that.

Anniversaries of all sorts are interesting occasions as they make you think about what has been happening since this time last year. By God has a lot of things happened. I was reading back in my blog post from the first day last year. I was so scared and uncomfortable. Now I’m not scared, I’m still uncomfortable sometimes but that is mainly because my role has changed to be a very different from what I have done before. I enjoy that very much. But it is still challenging.

Separating or getting divorced is obviously the biggest change in 2010. I’m still pretty surprised about that one. I never saw that one coming. That knocked my sense of control of my live to the curb. Funnily a friend pointed out to me last night that I have more control of my own life now then I have ever had before as I can make decisions only for me. No one else has to be involved in the process at all.

How come I feel that I’m standing in the middle and things are just happening around me at record breaking speed then?
