This year, while starting out with a bang as it pertains to my writing, is also bringing about a change to my job.
A wonderful co-worker and friend is, after 5 years, moving on to another agency, which promises to give her the experience that she needs in order to stand up and stand out when it comes time to move upwards.
There is a saying in our work world that sometimes you have to transfer out in order to get what you need in order to move up, and my co-worker and friend is doing what she needs to do in order to move up.
Even though we'll still maintain contact via the e-mail and Facebook (we reconnected after a two year hiatus), a part of me will be a little more empty without her cheerful exuberance and and warm personality to brighten my day.
While running my errands this past Sunday (1/6), the above mentioned song popped up my radio, and I think it appropriately sums up my state of mind as it applies to how I feel about my good friend and soon to be ex-coworker moving on to a better future.
