That’s right, y’all! I am now an assistant manager! Goal number one for 2012 has been completed.
This means that I am moving to a new store, and that I have to attend four weeks of leadership training. The four weeks of training kind of scares me, but I love my new store! I have worked there this past week, helping with inventory, and everyone is just great, and they seemed to accept me with open arms.
That being said, the past few weeks have been mentally and emotionally draining. I had been at my old store for 12 years, and the people there are like my family, so even though I am excited about my promotion, I am very sad to leave them all behind. I will still be able to visit them, but it won’t be the same as seeing them everyday.
It has also been hard for me to go to a place where I have to be around so many new people at one time. It is just draining for this shy and introverted girl. But I am proud of myself for doing it, because I know that a few years ago I would have been too terrified to even try.
But now I’m ready to grow and to learn, and I’m so excited to see where this new phase in my life will take me.
