What could have been

by Erin L. on June 11, 2013

I try not to play this game too often.  I don’t live my life by “what if’s”, but every now and again, you are placed in a space where you can’t help it.

Last week, my very first place of employment was having an open house.  They just moved to a newly designed office space and I was anxious to check it out.  My former CEO does nothing small and has always gone out of his way to ensure his employees have the very best work space possible.

I was not disappointed.

It was, for lack of a better word, AMAZING.  Clean lines mixed with collaborative work spaces equals a haven for marketing brainstorming and creative thinking.  I left feeling a little bit in awe

Is it wrong to consider checking out all future work spaces before I go back to work full time in a couple years? (Probably.)

Then I did that thing.  

I wondered what my life, career, etc would be like if I had never left.

It was silly really because I left for many reasons.  And my life wouldn’t be where it is today had I not left. Who know’s if I would have even thought to start this blog?

But I did it anyway.  I looked at my two colleagues who are still there, both Vice Presidents, and wondered.

I wondered if I had that in me.

I wondered if I was going to be able to get back into the marketing field once Miss E goes to kindergarten.

I wondered if I wanted to.

I wondered if people would hire me.

I wondered if I was marketable.

 

I still wonder…
