What Does the Future Hold?

This past week has been probably the most stressful, emotional week for me in a LONG time.  Lets start with where it all began.  On Thursday, May 6th I received a call from and Orthodontist office.  They were wanting to see if I would be interested in a position they were hiring for.  I'm sure they heard the silence on the other end and quickly thought to fill me in on how they got my number and why they were calling me. My good friend works at their office and had mention to the Dr who I am and where I work and all that jazz.  They asked me if I was looking for another job and I told them no.  They then asked me if I would be interested in doing an interview and just seeing what the Dr had to offer me.  I figured it couldn't hurt and I would just see........So to make a SUPER long story short I interviewed on Friday, May 7th and did a working interview on Tuesday, May 11th.  At the end of the day the Dr offered me an incredible offer with a higher pay and more hours then I currently have.

To me this was very stressful and emotional because deep down I don't want to move on, I hate the stress that comes with a new job and learning all there systems and how they run their office.  I hate making new friendships in a new unfamiliar environment.  But the biggest thing I HATE is leaving all my amazing friends/co-workers, the comfort of knowing everything at my current office, the incredible/insane patients that will miss my darling face (j/k), and just the all around fun I had at my office.  There was never a day I dreaded going to work.  I love my job at Aspen Dental and will be so sad to leave.  I just need to remember that what I am doing is going to benefit my family financially.  I hope I can learn fast, feel comfortable, love my job as much as I do now, and make new incredible friendships.  Wish me luck I start the new job May 24th!
