Where Have I Been?

"The only thing that is constant is change." Heraclitus of Ephesus
(c. 535 BC – 475 BC, Greek philosopher)

Heraclitus is known for his doctrine of change being central to the universe, and that is certainly true in my universe. In my 40 years of life (coming to 41 soon), I have come to love change and embrace it—change is good. I was very happy in my work life, so to stir things up a bit, I recently took on a new role within my company and with that role comes a steeeeeeep learning curve. I have to learn an entirely new tool and that tool is to be deployed for the new client I'd be serving, and guess what, I have less than a month before the go-live!

That was why I disappeared off the radar for almost a month as I frantically set myself up, got myself up to speed, built relationship with my new colleagues, and while I was at it slept/ate/played a lot less.

All is good now. Nothing is impossible. If you have strong support from your team members, you can handle anything! I certainly thrived and here's to more hectic days ahead.
