I had some really great and unexpected news come my way the other day at work.
The day began as it always does. Wake up. Decide what to wear. Get dressed. Do my hair. Put on my makeup. Drive to the bus. Take bus to the subway. Take subway. Go to Starbucks. Walk to work. Do my work….
But, mid-afternoon, I got pulled into a meeting. I never really think anything of it when my boss says, “let me know when you have a second.” We always have impromptu meetings about one thing or another. My suspicion and nerves crept up a bit when he said he wanted to chat in the boardroom and not at his desk. I always think the worst, so positive reasons for the meeting wouldn’t have ever crossed my mind.
After some torturous small talk, I found out that I was getting promoted! Immediately!
I can’t even tell you how many emotions were brewing inside of me. Of course I was elated (and still am), but I was also excited, nervous, surprised, and well…did I say nervous?
The next few weeks will inevitably be insane, but it’s a learning process and I’m so happy to have the new opportunity.
Funny enough, I was already feeling pretty awesome that day, because I had on a really springy and bright outfit. I have this crazy obsession with funky pants from the Gap, so I was really excited to finally get to wear these. I guess it turned out, my outfit matched my mood.
