First Day.

Today was my first day at my new job. I was a bit nervous about it, as there are parts of my position that will definitely push me outside of my comfort zone.  The other part that will require some juggling is that I already know a lot of the people I work with, but as a client.  If you haven't guessed already, I am now working at blueballoon, where Max receives all of his therapy.  So, while my coworkers are trying to get used to our new dual relationship (and bumping into me in the staff kitchen), I am navigating between the fact that I am still a client yet also a coworker.  Weird, eh?  I suspect there will be some bumps in the road while we all sort this out.  I need to figure out how to wear two different hats.  Add to that one of the great benefits I bring to my role is that I truly understand the customer experience, yet I have to be careful as to how I refer to it and also tread lightly when I am wearing my client hat...I'm sure I will work it all out, but it is something I have never experienced before.    

The best part of the day was tackling the very thing that I was freaked out about most, which was calling clients.  Also, the day flew by.  I haven't had a day fly by like that in years - definitely a good sign.  Tomorrow will bring an entire new day of new experiences and challenges, and an entire new team of people that I have yet to meet.

I can't remember feeling this fulfilled.  And this happy.  I'm in the right place professionally for the first time in my career.  Feels good.  Scratch that.  Feels great.
