Many people I know have been in their careers for more than 20 years, some even retiring from the same company they started with out of college. Often they cannot understand how people today have multiple employers before they even turn 30. I was one of those people. I loved my company and what I did every day, but then things changed.

The busy holiday season is over. The family visits and day-long shopping trips have ended. The decorations are put away and the cookies and candy are almost completely consumed. Now what? For me, when the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is over and it's just me and my husband and son, I take a deep breath, look to the future, and try to find some happiness. What? Wasn't I happy when I was visiting family I haven't seen in years? Wasn't I happy when I was shopping my heart out trying to find that perfect gift for that special someone?
