Embracing the change

Today marks my first two days with my new company. I again, as new hire, go through the usual but very helpful stuff called orientation. Introduction to the company’s history and background, to the different process involved in managing its people and business, to the different policies enforce for the benefits of both the company and its employees. One day is not enough to fully orient oneself. A day or two is insufficient to have myself adjusted to the change of the environment, people, process, technology and business.

My previous company has been my comfort zone for quiet a time. Now that I moved out, I feel like I stepped into a different world. Strange! The changes are very obvious.

Sometime yesterday, I told myself to just feel the change and go on with the flow of the environment, be familiar with it because the change will become a part of me eventually. I’m here. This was what I was aiming for; the moving forward; the growing up. Now, I will just have to explore the change, understand, embrace it, and move forward with it while having a positive perspective in mind. This change is for my benefit.


On the lighter side, I am so excited to blog about receiving the gift sent across the miles from Allison. Thanks for Mel hosting the online exchange gift last December. Honestly, I never planned of joining but as if there's someone who coerced me to immediately signed for this activity. Turns out to be fun! Charge to experience. What I got? Two pieces of fashion jewelries: earrings & bracelet, a cosmetic set, a corsage and a journal. I absolutely like the journal, perfect for writing down thoughts. And the color, purple - love it ! Thanks again Allison. The package actually arrived second week of January. But since I addressed it to province, I was only able to check on it this week. Here are the snapshots... opps! the pictures are to follow. I am updating my blog from an internet cafe (I guess this will be the case from now on until my budget allows me to buy my own laptop), seems their USB port is not working :(

I'm glad you are keeping a positive attitude during the change. It can be so hectic starting a new job. Focus on the little things first--like remembering where the bathrooms are! I say that because a friend of mine started a new job last year and she forgot where they were and she was too embarrassed to ask anyone. LOL

I'm excited for you in making this change. It's good that you're 'going with the flow' in order to fit in and make the necessary changes. I have faith that this is what you were meant to do. Keep us posted. I know you'll be great in your new position. I feel it. After all, it's better than the alternative you had been anticipating....that of not having a job. Good luck, dear little friend. Faith. Keep your faith.

@RicAdemu: Focus on litte things first -- that's a really good advice. Right now, I'm teaching my hands how to effectively unlock the bathroom door. Each employee has their own key to the comfort room. And each time I used the b-room, it would take me three attempts to successfully unlock it.

@Weezer: thanks for all the positive thoughts. I will always keep the fight in me no matter how big the challenges are :)

@acutelife: I will check my mail. I am hoping you already got it.

Ness, I just stopped by to check on you and see how things are. Weezer

Weezer said...

Where are you, my little friend? Are you okay?

IamNoOne said...

Hi Weezer :) I'm touched the way you expressed your concern. Yes, I'm quiet fine and doing well with my new job. One thing is not good though, been very busy and is still getting my hands tied. All i could do right now is check my blog and reply to some comments. Could not help find a time and space in my brain to create new interesting post. Sad.... :(

Weezer said...

Hello, little friend. Just checking on you again. Glad to hear that you are just busy and that things are okay with you. I just wanted to let you know that I stopped by again. Get back as soon as you can.
**Hugs**

Just checking on you again. How about giving us a shout or something to let us know that all is well with you.
Stay well, little friend. You're missed on here.

Hello Ness, I am very glad read you enjoy being in your new office. Good for you.
You work hard, and have fun...
And I'm sure this Tiger year will bring you much happiness and a fruitful year too.

May the wind always be at your back, and the sun upon your face, and the winds of Destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars.
You stay beautiful and keep a song in your heart, have fun, Lee.
