Here's the thing

I like my new job. I feel like I am learning alot and the people are really nice. People think I am really capable and the "perfect fit" for this position, but I keep thinking they are going to find out. Find out that I am just trying to stay a little ahead of the curve and look like I know what I am doing. This job forces me to leave my comfort zone and be more upfront and direct with people that I am working with and people that I am doing business with. I'm a bit overwhelmed, but I am still enjoying what I am doing. The upside? I am feeling like more of an adult.

I feel like an adult every now and then too, like when I see how much is taken out of my pay check for various reasons, and when I notice myself getting excited about how cheap my vision insurance is. Geez. I was already an old lady. Getting excited about insurance? There's just no hope anymore. =P

Just because it's out of your comfort zone doesn't meant it's more than you can handle! -Lydia

I've been at my job 6 months now and I'm still waiting for them to figure out that I'm a total idiot and fire me.....

You are more than capable of handling this job. You are so smart and competent that you could do anything you put your mind to. This is a new position so it is yours to create. Remember, there is no bar, so you can raise however far you want... and if I know my Katie, it will be pretty f^$@'n high.

I like what peyton said, you can do anything youput your mind to and this job taking you out of a 'comfort zone' is perfect for showing how far you are capable of taking it.
who wants to be stuck in a dead end position?
