How to Survive the First Day At A New Job

Today I started my new career, the journey I will be taking indefinitely. I have been a stay-at-home mom for the past two years and I decided it was time to take the plunge back into the adult world. It was tough, I’m not going to lie. I could hardly sleep last night because I was so worried about what my days would now consist of. I thought about all the flexibility I would be losing and all the time with my kids. It was a little heartbreaking.

After I caught myself getting tangled up in thoughts of things I would be losing, I realized the only way to survive the first day of work was to change my outlook and do my best to shift my thoughts to the things I would be gaining. It didn’t occur to me until late the night before the big day that I was actually doing what was best for myself and my family. It was inspiring for me to fall asleep thinking about the things I could now afford for my family that we couldn’t before (after that dreaded daycare bill, eek!) and the way I would be a professional adult and be purposeful in my work.

After shifting my worried thoughts to good, I was able to fall asleep quickly and get some rest. I woke up this morning feeling refreshed and willing to take on the day, even as nervous as I was. I inspired myself instead of searching for reassurance somewhere else. It turned out to be an amazing first day and I killed it!
