Today is a big day. I graduate from training for my new job. We get a ceremony, pizza party and everything. Its nice to work at someplace that celebrates its employees success. But none of that is why today is a big deal for me.
I am so excited about graduating today because three weeks ago I was seriously thinking about quitting and going to ask for my old job back. If you knew how much I hated my old job at the end you would know how low I was feeling. I cried at my desk several times. I was so overwhelmed. On some level, I think I didn’t believe I could do the job.
I am fortunate that I was surrounded by people who believed otherwise and worked with me until I it believed too.

I’m glad you stuck with it. You can do this. Be patient, in time you’ll be a pro at it. You’re a smart lady!
Thank you, Audrey. I am glad I stuck with it too. I already feel so much more confident about things. However, you wouldnt believe what people come up with. Its hilarious and a little sad.
