So the new job is challenging - Case Manager. It is not physically challenging, but hell there is a lot to learn and I will admit there have been times already that I have thought, "I'll never get all of this," but it seems to be getting better. So far only 1 major FUBAR that my trainer and I fixed without loss of life or limb. But it was something that should have never happened so I feel like shit about it. But it is done and over and I have to move on. Let it go and not let the one setback inhibit the rest of my learning. I learn from my mistakes and move on.
Life's circumstance have forced me to where I am now because I would have not budged. So on & on events come and come again and here we are in that place we find ourselves wondering how the hell did I get here. The answer is so complex sometimes and can take you back well into what seems like another lifetime.
The challenge of doing something different from what you know and learning new things is hard for me. I am in that transitional process right now. It's June 28, 2009 and for 12 years I worked in the same place, with the same people doing the same things. And now I'm taking on this new career path and even considering going back to school for a BSN & possibly a MSN - nurse practitioner. But hey, one step at a time!
