Achieved my goals for 2018

Happy Friday, ladies! I am so excited to share a bit of good news with you today. On 01.01.2018, I wrote a post recapping 2017 and setting goals for 2018. In that post, I set 2 goals for myself: Goal # 1: Run my first half-marathon (which I did in April). I am currently training for my 2nd half-marathon (in October). I will talk more about it in the near future. Goal # 2: Make a career move. I've been actively looking and am so thrilled to announce that I have accepted a job offer! I put in my 2 weeks' notice earlier this week and will be starting my new position right after the holiday. As mentioned in the same post, I've been with my current company for almost 9 years. I enjoy what I do and the people I work with but after 9 years, I am ready to take on new challenges. Some people might ask, why don't I move up to management? The answer is simple - I don't want to. My husband has a high demand and super stressful career, I want to be the one who's there to take care of the girls and the family when he can't. A management role comes with additional responsibilities and stress and that's not exactly what I am going after. I am all about work life balance. The technical side is where I want to stay (I work in software development). With that  being said, I am excited for the opportunity and new challenges. I look forward to meet my new team, hit the ground running and work hard

I feel amazing knowing that I achieved the goals I set for myself. Other than wasted my time on a so-called friendship (which is already a thing of the past), 2018 has been great so far. I truly believe beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from negativity. I can't wait to see what the second half of 2018 has in store for us #blessed
