Jenni's Jargon

the thoughts that run through my head


on December 10, 2016

changeI have always felt like Fall and Spring are times of change. The weather changes, the foliage changes, my animals either gain or loose fur and the time changes. This Fall I have made a big change as well. I changed jobs. I had been working at Tennyson Center for Children for almost 10 years and still enjoyed the work and the mission of the organization. I must say that I have loved working for non-profits for the last…almost 20 years…wow that was hard to type out.

I am a big believer that you have to take opportunities when they are staring you in the face with a flashing neon sign. That seems what has happened to me this time. So, I have been on the Board of Directors for the Central Rocky Mountain Region of the Christian Church Disciples of Christ and the office was looking for an Executive Assistant to help the Executive Regional Minister and help run the office. This job seemed right up my alley, flexible work schedule (including telecommuting), working for the denomination I am a member of, serving others including working closely with clergy. I am excited to be in charge of the social media, follow me on our Facebook page or Twitter feed.

When I put in my notice to my last job, the most frequent question I was asked was, “Will this job keep you busy enough?” My answer is, after just starting my 3rd week, Yes and there was no reason to be as busy as I was in the first place. My pace of life seems to have calmed down, I have more time with my family, more time to make good meals, more time to do some of the things I have been wanting to do for a while (volunteer at my kiddo’s school). This seems to be a job that really fits me, I really like to be a support person but I don’t always do well in high stress situations. This job simply makes me happy!!

I am getting ready for Christmas, family coming for a visit, winter and a little more snow (especially because I will just work from home on the snowy days), more quality time with my family. I have a lot of great things to look forward to and that is where my focus is right now.  I hope everyone is ready for some great changes in their life that I am sure will be coming your way, remember to look for those neon signs that show up in your face!!
