The way time goes by…

Five years ago today, I accepted my first travel position.  I was on vacation, had just bought a car and was spending time with family.  I had been waiting since April to have someone take a chance on me.  Despite having many years of experience, it was difficult for me to break into the travel gig I wanted.

It was a time in my life that I had a lot going on personally; some of it very difficult and other parts, I felt like I was at the top of my game.  But, with that one call, it all changed for the better.  I was so excited, scared and totally overwhelmed.  I would be leaving in a few days to start a job in Tuba City, Arizona.

Looking back, I would say that my dominate emotion was being scared.  I had no idea what to expect, didn’t know if I would succeed and would be very far from my family.  However, it was also so exciting to start a new adventure and realize a dream that I had been harboring for well over a decade.

I now have 15 travel assignments under my belt and certainly much more confidence and experience than I did then.  I have scores of memories, travels and mistakes from these past five years, but I wouldn’t give back one of them.
