How Excited Am I?

So... How excited am I that I got my first paycheck direct deposited straight into my bank account last night while I was sleeping? My answer...... Soooo excited!!!
I knew I left my old job for a good, no GREAT reason.. And that's right ladies and gentleman.. The new job showed me the money, lol... I knew that going in early and staying late would make me feel great at some point during this new adventure I've been on lately!!!
And ya know what's even better(well not even better, but just as good)? I love the job!! You probably getting sick on me saying this and I promise I'll stop.... SOON!!! lol... But I LOVE the job!! I love the kids, the people I work with, the atmosphere!! I love it all.. And I don't mind going in early!! But the paychecks definately are a great added bonus...
I am happy I made the right choice. Like anyone, as you enter a new phase in your life and start something new change can be hard, very hard! And it can either go in 2 directions - bad or good! You will ask ytourself am I making the right choice, will it be ok, will I be happy, will I be liked, will I like it, will I make it? Thankfully my story has had a great ending.... so far!! If I could give you advice, any of you that may be looking to begin a new job or change something major in your life I would say to take that leap and make sure you jump high; cause if you don't. You'll always be wondering what if!! And I think the "what if" is the worst of all!!!

great advice! i am so happy you are loving the a person who hates change myself, i have been in the same position. for some reason, i was so nervous to change to a much better job with more money & less work to do because i was worried what if i don't like the people, who will i eat lunch with, and all of the other questions you were thinking. i was so comfortable at my old job, it didn't matter to me that it was getting really overwhelming and long as everything stayed the same. my new job is like a vacation everyday compared to my old one, and i couldn't be happier that i did it.
