As I write this, I'm sitting at a seemingly bare desk at the amphitheater, the same music pavilion I've spent 5 long seasons working at. My job here has had it's ups and downs, just as much as many people's do. I've spent countless long hours here..I've laughed, cried, yelled, and of course jammed out to the many artists that we've had perform here.
I was really thrown into the music business, and as I've come to find, most people in this industry are. I'm thankful for all of the experiences (good & bad) I've had here, thankful to have been offered an internship and then after that, a job right after graduating. Never in a thousand years would I have thought this is where I would be today, but that's half the fun isn't it? We really don't know what our future holds, but I would like to think that mine can only go up from here.
I've prayed long and hard about my decision to move on from here..weighing the options with God. Is this the right decision? Change is hard, terrifying actually. But I don't doubt my strength in being able to step out of my comfort zone and move on to a bigger and better opportunity.
A lesson that I am continuing to learn each day, is that God works things out in his perfect time. Just when I felt like everything was falling apart, when I had had countless bad days and sadly found myself being bitter, I got the answer I was looking for; the answer I had been praying for.
In a way, I'm a bit sad to be moving on. Leaving the first job I had out of college. But I know that the future is bright and it's time to start something new, trust in the Lord and enjoy the magic of a new beginning. I'm blessed and humbled to be given this job opportunity which, excitingly enough, keeps me in the same crazy, fast-paced industry.
I know that my updates have been few and far between, but I'm excited and hopeful that I will be able to keep you all updated, on this new beginning I'm about to embark on. So please stick around!
