No Turning Back
d-e-t-a-i-l-s! There is so much (more) reading to do, so much (more) ground to cover. So much (more) work.
Yes, I feel like my head it about to explode.
The first week of training has been exhausting yet exhilarating.
All the new associates were assigned to veteran district coordinators. The team I was assigned to has three others beside myself. One of the three, a young woman, younger than my daughter, is struggling with her decision. She's discouraged, very much, after week one. I hope she returns. I'm trying to encourage her, but she's working with some particularly negative family (and friends) mojo.
Plus, half of the folks who started with us Friday, the ninth of August, have already quit.
But, as our trainer (and Jerry Butler said, "Only The Strong Survive". Knowing what I've learned of her life (to date) I think she is strong.
This past week has reminded me of a sort of mantra I read (and noted in a journal) months ago: Work hard. Do Good. Be incredible.
Beyond that, one day, one step at a time, full steam ahead.
