Forced Change

All good things must come to an end--so describes my current working situation. I have two of the best bosses that a girl could ask for and, on Friday, that tense will be changed to HAD. For the past four and a half years I have been blessed with a man who has always had my back in the worst of situations and a woman with the best open-door policy ever. Now both are leaving my firm to go work for one of our competitors and are most likely taking two of my closest work buddies and I am feeling completely and utterly deserted. Fortunately for me, I have another goal in my life that I am currently working towards (and that good news will be blogged about in about a week, fingers crossed!)--and my job gives me the liberty to accomplish it; however, that fact does not take away the hurt (and, yes, there's a little bit of anger there) of losing my friends--the people that keep me sane through the work week. It isn't as if one person is leaving, but MY ENTIRE GROUP (with the exception of two attorneys) and I am going to carry the burden of all of the attorneys left behind (there are a total of six, and that's a bit too much). A co-worker told me this morning "forced change can be a very good thing". I hope she's right--I'm placing all of my bets on that quote. I am entering a place that I've never been before--a place where there is no plan, situations in which I do not know what to expect and it's happening against my will. In the end, everything will be okay, I just have to keep looking straight and barreling ahead to the future.

My motto, as most of my mottos are,about change is not very encouraging...basically, I hate change.

I like to know what's going to happen tomorrow and the next day and the next....not knowing sort of scares me.

But here's the thing about you...you're young, you're briliant, you're beautiful and you have a fantastic support system, so what's to fear? You'll be fine no matter what tomorrow brings.

Ooooh, the mystery! I can't wait to hear what's on the horizon. I know it will be great things for you! I'm sorry for the big changes. That's some crazy stuff. It will turn out exactly the way it's supposed to!
