How does it feel when your life suddenly changes? It's exhausting yet very exciting. But you might be wondering what I am talking about, right?
Now, don't you think I didn't want to write anything, when in the truth, just almost two months ago I took a step to the unknown and it has been a ride ever since. I changed my job.
In recent years, I was set up in very easy flow working environment that many of you desire, I am sure. I was a freelancer so I worked from home and was in charge of my own day. Pretty much. I woke up on my own schedule mostly, walked the dogs, ate breakfast and started working. All my day was dictated mostly by needs of my clients and my own projects, including this blog. But this sort of workday lasted till 7 or 8 p.m. and I didn't really get to enjoy the day. Plus I was closed at home all the time.
Can you guess how many steps from the recommended 10 000 I did in a day? Hardly 2 000. And with more than 10 hours of work I was closed in my bubble that made me fatter and less active.
I told myself I really need a change so I started to look around for something new. Coincidentaly I got a call from one sweet headhuntress with a proposition to work for one of the biggest Czech companies as a project manager. I was backing off at first, because this position requires me to travel every day. But more I found out about the offer, the more I was inclined to accept because so many things were setting so nicely that I came to conclusion I should accept.
It's a challenge that I have been diving into last two months. Instead of getting up at 8 I have to get up at 5:30 a.m. After I leave, it's an one hour drive and I am just starting to drive so it's sort of a drama for me. Right after it's a day filled with new learnings. After that return to Prague and then household work. That's my new everyday. Maybe a routine for some, and you might consider it a step back. For me it's a step further, a challenge that brings a new regime. Just so you know, I tripled my daily step count, I started eating regularly and lost 3 kilos already, after I get home I have no extra work and can use my time effectively like sewing, exercise and rest. Plus I will learn to drive properly.
I am not going to explain to you about how these changes are bringing a stress and how tired I am. But I am truthfully happy, I can work on things with purpose and I know the things I work on matter. So don't be mad with lack of articles, but when I get the hang of it all, I'll also write more.
