A new job

Tomorrow I start a new job. For the second time in the past two years, I will start again. I was out of work for two and a half months, roughly the same amount of time as last time. Unemployment brings many challenges, especially to men who find so much identity in what they do and in providing for their families. Starting a new job is bittersweet. Change is both beautiful and scary. Starting over provides both opportunity and challenge. A new culture and system to learn, an office to set up, a pay and package to figure out. Things to realign. So much to do…so many possibilities, so much joy and hope. It truly is both new and an adventure. Praying that in my work and in my presence I might be an answer to someone‚Äôs prayers.
