Quote of the Week


I'll have to quote Steve Jobs. For today was my first day at a new job. I recently joined an Interior Design firm  to work as a designer.  Hopefully, this is it, the career I've been searching for for a very long time. A path I've always wanted for the last ten years, but also very scared of actually doing. 

One of those things I wanted very badly, but had been very elusive. Until one day, at a time when I completely let go of the whole idea, it just takes me by surprise.  I will not know until I try, right? It was so funny because I had no idea my future  present bosses actually read some of my posts on the design blog. I knew them for years before this blog was born. It was just hilarious when they saw my quiche recipe during my last interview, because I have stopped writing design posts on my other blog for months now. Haha..so I suppose they might read this too. Eek! 

Please bear with me during my adjustment in the corporate world after a really long career break. I usually spend the first week hyperventilating in the bathroom in between tasks. Are you like that too? Or is it just me?  Wish me luck. :)

I wish you all a beautiful weekend.
Love and light,

    I wish you all the best on this new career move - I'm sure you'll do great :)

    I also get very nervous during interviews and first weeks of every new job and I find it hard to sleep and I find it difficult to interact with new colleagues, but it all gets better as time goes by.

    Great quote!

  5. congratulations on this move! I love this Steve Jobs quote, it is so so true, you"ll know it in no time! But also give yourself time to adjust! Since I have started my new job about 3 months ago now, I've been through the same period recently - I know how it feels to have fount "it" but also to experience push backs and learned how to stop, look at it from another angle, take a deep breath and keep going.
    I am sure you will be doing great!!
    Have a wonderful start into your new job, have fun and and a good time!
