Run To Something.

Standard

They say good things come in 3’s and a few weeks ago, I was hoping that would ring true. Well, I hit 2/3! Hey! I can certainly live with that!  Back when I wrote this (!!!) post, we also had a few other things brewing.

We were also looking at buying a house we really loved {which, no big deal, didn’t come through} but I was also in the throes of interviews for a new job.

After 8 1/2 great years at Disney, I’ve accepted a fantastic new opportunity at Sony!

For the better part of the last year, I’ve had my eyes open for something new, fresh and challenging – be it internal or external. I explored many opportunities, yet most didn’t feel as if they were truly the right fit or best next step.

Along the way, I received a ton of support and a piece of really great advice.

Make sure you are running to something, not from something.

Simple and succinct, this became a definitive point of evaluation and a mantra I now carry with me – as it relates to marriage, a new home, a new job–or any other life opportunity.

After I resigned last week, I made like Forest Gump and set out on one of the most liberating runs I’ve had in a long time — and came home sweaty and smiling to a popped bottle.

I’ve got one more week at the Mouse House — it’s been a tremendous ride.  The people, the friends, the brands, the impossibles dreamed possible.  There is a lot to love for my time at Disney, but I also love change.

so much “new” lies ahead

Marriage, New Job.  What’s Next? {suggestions.welcome}

All I’m certain of is that I am running to this next phase of life.
