The department officially bade me farewell today. I go on MC in a week, for 3 weeks and then I clear 1 month worth of leave I've saved up over the year, before going on maternity for 4 months. I'll then be posted out to another department to begin a new chapter in my professional career.
It's been 5 or so years since I've been with my current department, and my posting is certainly long overdue. I've been quite bored for quite some time, and really just need some new challenges in my professional life. I was supposed to start at a new posting in 2011, but with my pregnancy, it made sense to hold all things off till after my maternity leave.
As i look forward to something new, I do sometimes wonder whether I should have held off my departure for a bit. Afterall, I'm going to through a massive life-changing event in a couple of weeks, and coping with a new role as a mother. A new work-role, in a brand new environment could be too much for me? But there's been many changes in the department that I really don't like, and don't wish to stick around for, that this also seems like the best time to move ever!
I think for 2011, I resolve to take everything in my stride. The challenge of raising twins, a new job, a new house, everything. I'll make it. I always have. And i'm sure I will again. More confidently, I know I have an army of souls who love and care for me, to lend me all the support and courage I need to get through 2011. =)
my farewell gift- a huge crumpler bag for
