So today I had an awesome lunch with some pretty fabulous ex-coworkers. And it’s true, the more things change, the more they stay the same. There was a time I was cut for the corporate world, for the ladder climbing, back stabbing, lonely road to the top. But atlas the birth of my first daughter changed all that, the fact the company was outsourcing work made me realize it was only a matter of time. Today at lunch reminded me of the great people left behind, the people that made my daily commute worth it and so I say to you- hang in there people of corporate America your day will come when you walk away or rise to the top. Your day will come.
I have taken away great experience and heart and I am stronger in my new role than I would have been had I not had the corp experience. Maybe it’s a female thing that happens when one becomes a mother but nothing else mattered once she was here. A job was a job a river was a river and an ocean was still big. I learned so much more about myself than I ever would have.
For that I thank the experience of the corporate world and the years I was housed there (12) and I say thank goodness for the next chapter.
