Groundhog Day was last Thursday (and yes, it does appear we’ll have 6 more weeks of winter)…. but I feel like I’m having a Groundhog Year! Maybe it has something to do with the fact that this is a leap year…?
Why, you may ask, am I feeling this way? Well, I’m starting a new job. Again. Things seem to be repeating themselves… This time last year, I was still working at The Restaurant Directory — we had just opened an office in the suburbs, and I was commuting 3 days a week. Until I got recruited by Jones Lang LaSalle. I started my position there as a Sr Graphic Designer in early March 2011. Tomorrow I start a new job. Again. I will now be working as a Marketing Specialist at CBRE. Crazy, no? I never would have expected myself to end up in the real estate biz, but that’s a post for another day.
I have the connections and interest of friends to thank for these recent changes and, more importantly, the Divine intervention that has brought me where I am today. We can never imagine as 12-, 16-, 18-, 20-year olds, etc., where our lives will end up as time goes by. It is a funny thing to look back on the past and see how God has arranged events in just such a way to bring us to a new chapter in life, and bring us closer to Him. He really does know best, and this I have learned to trust.
So, who knows where I’ll be 12 months from now but, for the moment, I’m trusting that I am exactly where I need to be. Groundhog Day or not.
