I've been three weeks at my new job, and I can't tell you how much I love it.  The work is challenging and some days I feel like an idiot, and wonder what the hell I've got myself into.  But most days I love it.

My boss today told me I was doing really well.  She said she couldn't believe how well I was doing, and she was actually really happy because she thinks they'll be mostly able to stay on top of the workload this busy season.  That really, really meant a lot to me.  In the almost two years I had my last boss, and the two years before that, I don't think I was ever told I was doing a good job.  And now, within the first three weeks, I'm told that I'm doing a good job, and that I can actually slow down, lol.

It's like a breath of fresh air after living in a toxic dump.

The only thing I don't like is that it's 15 minutes away from my house, which is nothing compared to some comutes, I know this. But I'm used to being literally 5 minutes away and being able to come home at lunch and be with the critters and unwind before heading back into things.  It's taking a little getting used to.

But the other day, as I was driving home, I realized that I was happy. And that I was allowed to be happy. That it was OK to feel good.  It was such a surprising thought, that it's all right to not feel miserable.  It was amazing.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that I'm so happy right now, and feeling so much better. It's like a dark cloud has passed and the sun is out.  I'm looking forward to the holidays, to getting up in the mornings.  It's amazing.  I hope you all are doing well.
