All of us agreed about new beginnings, good to hear that. The person closest to our heart weighs much .
READING is a healing.

It makes me excited about the new things that I will learn from a new career. Excited to explore things outside my comfort zone.

Well, a lot of things count in . For me, when I think about new career is that I'll be on my own , giving myself a pat that I am not burden on anyone. Moreover , I'll have a new a fresh start . I'll have a further way of achievements and in that way, I'll form new chains with diverse people already in that field. Everything excites me, soon I'll have that career when I'll be done with my studies . Hopes are high .

I don't usually like change, but I do enjoy the new opportunities offered with a new career.

I agree. It's scary sometimes but the idea of taking a risk, changing something as big as a career, or anything really, gives me butterflies. Career wise though, I've changed recently, and what drove me was the idea of doing something for more than just the money. I felt like i was going to do something that may have been a little more fulfilling, in my case it was decorating, something I didn't realise how much of a passion i had until I decorated my best friend's Bridal Shower. I loved every moment of it, and i knew i needed something to do with my life that felt like that. They do say, do something you love and you'll never work a day in your life. :)
Between the pages of a book is a lovely place to be...

A new career is a chance to start afresh and take the learnings from what we have done so far and apply it from the get-go. That opportunity excites me.

If it's in a field or environment I like, I like the side perks that come with jobs. For ex, books readily available in the local library :)

I love having the opportunity to make a fresh start. In my area of work, a new career usually means a new location, so I get to discover new parts of my country. I enjoy the diversity and this always excites me.

I'm just about to start a new job and am trying to contain my excitement. Everything about it is exciting because I'm leaving behind a field that I fell into by accident and never really liked. This new job is something I've always dreamed about. It feels like the first step in the right direction and hence very exciting.

New possibilities and opportunities are always exciting, especially when you get to do something like Max got to do. To have a massive, dream project on your doorstep is something that just can't be missed. Unless ofcourse if there is something more important than that.

Having new career can open up more opportunities and experiences. Those can be pretty exciting. It's always nice to go beyond your comfort zone.
