Starting a new job is always difficult.  You don’t know anyone.  Nor do you have the comfort of familiar routines.  Things other employees do with practiced ease take far longer when you attempt them, and you might make silly mistakes along the way.

That is what I found on the first day of my new job, today.

It’s tempting to want to stay in my comfort zone, and stay away from new challenges.

But learning new skills keeps me sharp, and adds to the sum total of my experiences.  I know that opening a door invariably leads to another hallway full of other doors; other opportunities.

Starting a new job is difficult, but to truly seize life, remaining still is not an option for me.
