Right now (about 10:45pm), I'm sitting in Luke's office while he does a little late-night work. And you know what? I'm a little anxious. Tomorrow, I fly to Atlanta to officially begin what I can already tell is going to be a great adventure. God has been preparing mine and Luke's hearts for this next chapter of our lives for a while now and tomorrow the big stuff begins. I will meet the other members of the JH Field Marketing team at our national convention. I will dive deep into what my new job is going to look like over the next few months and it will be information overload. I will learn the ends and outs of my new company, and from what I've been told, will have an amazing time doing so! But still, I'm anxious.
It's funny, you know. My whole life I've dreamt about what it would be like to get that big break; to get the opportunity to move up to the east coast and chase my dreams; to do what I truly love in a part of the country that has stolen my heart. I thought this time of my life would never come and now, here it is. I am overwhelmed by the love and support of our family and friends. I'm still a little stressed about finding us a home in a part of the country I don't know that well. And just like the first day of school, I hope they like me.
Sometimes I wonder if you every fully lose that feeling on the first big day of whatever lies before you. My guess is, probably not. And I actually sort of hope not. Because I use these nerves as motivation. It's time to make a great first impression and to be the confident 25-year-old marketing professional that I am. This is where the rubber meets the road and I know I'm ready. This small town girl is ready to take a leap of faith, knowing that the God who has brought her to this point isn't letting go now. He's always had me in the palm of His hand and I know He'll never let go.
I won't have time to blog from Atlanta, but I can't wait to tell you all about it once I'm home! Say a prayer for me, ok? Thanks friends.
