Life is interesting in the way it winds and weaves. When you plan on zigging, it zags. When you plan on ducking, you stumble over a trip-wire. And sometimes when one door closes the only way out is through the air ducts.
Two years and four days ago I drove into Detroit to begin the best career decision of my life. I didn’t know it yet, of course. At the time I was just excited about the new opportunity. What followed were 734 days of laughter, tears, adventures, and newfound friendships. The road has not been a cake-walk by any means. The Rock Family of Companies provides their Team Members with amazing benefits and a Rock Star culture but they expect you to put in the work in turn.
My 23 months were spent at Rock Connections and for those of you who don’t read my blog on the regular, I recently transitioned to the position of Senior Team Coordinator at Bedrock. I’m still in Detroit and still under the Rock Family of Companies, but at the same time it feels like everything has changed.
The people are so welcoming and are just as random and silly as I am while still exemplifying the work ethic I strive to live by.
In every job transition I’ve ever had, without fail, around the 2 week mark I usually have some sort of self-doubt ridden panic attack. I’ll question whether or not I’m capable enough to take on the new role, intelligent enough to learn what I need to, and so on and so forth.
And yet, the part of my brain that has traditionally chimed in to tell me I’m a garbage human being has been atypically quiet as of late. I think, and I’m just spit-balling here, that through a combination of personal growth in tandem with the people and atmosphere I have transitioned to my brain did not feel the need to go the self-disparaging route.
Welp, today is week FIVE at Bedrock. Time to see what new adventures await me!
Bye for now!
