Don’t expect different results, while doing same things

Hi guys,

Today I would like to talk about changes. The reason why I’ve decided to talk about changes (I might have had very similar if not the same title of the post down the road already), is because I’ve changed the one thing that was spoiling my productivity, which is my job. For a very long time, I’ve been working night shifts and as a result, I was running on little to no sleep. Friday night was my last shift in that job (I liked it, just the timing wasn’t as convenient). And as stress connected to me phaving to get ready on time ended, I slept the entire 24 hours. Good thing that we have my auntie visiting us and she took good care of my son, while I was on my visit to the dreamland. I was a bit anxious about my decision but this situation convinced me that this was the right choice. I am still going to work but this time during the day, around my husband’s schedule. However, having a night for sleep seems to be the best choice I could have made.

And I am not going to lie, I still feel a bit anxious about this change. Am I going to manage in my new job? Is it going to be a better solution for my family time-wise? I have no idea, but there is no point in being stuck in a bad scenario, just because of fear that the new one is going to be worse. I might regret it in the future, but hey, I will be able to look for another job, if this isn’t going to work out. This is the worst-case scenario, the better one is that I am going to love my new job and it will serve my family much better than my current job does. So what am I losing after all? Not too much. I might gain a new experience and a great place to work, and at the same time be present for my son. And don’t get me wrong, I was there for my son, but towards the end of the week, when my husband and I had a day off, I’ve slept through the entire day.

So what is the situation at the moment? First of all, I am trying to get used to a new sleeping routine. It has only been a couple of days, so I can’t fall asleep in the evening. Second of all, I am dealing with all paperwork for my new job. While writing this paragraph I am on my way to getting basic training. After there will be only documents to upload, and a contract to sign and I will be able to start work next week. I am also planning to finally get my home organised this week but as always, we’ll see how it’ll go. At the moment there is a huge heat wave where I live and it makes it hard to get to work. But as always, I’ll do my best to push through.

Next week I am going to start my work in a fast food restaurant. It will be challenging on the begining, but all jobs so far were, till I got ised to. And I will also have more time to work on my own projects, so fingers crossed, you’ll be able to read my posts on more regular basis.

And this is all I wanted to share in today’s post. Changes are hard and if you are going through any at the moment, remember that the situation you are used to now also was a change back in time, so I wish you a very productive day and I’ll see you in my next post.
