Good Night, and Good Luck

By Elyssa A. Goldstein, CLM, PHR, SHRM-CP

In a time where so much has changed, and will continue to change, in the world around us, the NJALA is changing, as well.  This edition marks the last edition of the Jer-Z-Journal for the indefinite future and, perhaps, forever.
No longer having the capacity to serve as editor (and being unable to secure a successor), I bid a fond farewell to a role I cherished for the past three years.  I suspect some void will be felt without the newsletter in my life, but I know it is right to step aside and embrace new opportunities.
In the smallest of ways, this change in routine mirrors the large-scale change in routine many of us in New Jersey (and around the world) are currently experiencing. 
Things familiar have been disrupted.  The comforts we once cherished may no longer be readily available.  I cannot pretend to know the ultimate outcome, but I can tell you that change is hard, no matter what the stakes. 
I believe that there is no time like the present to push yourself.  Try something new.  Be “up” for the challenge.  Strength can manifest most when your back is against the wall, and you will likely surprise yourself when you choose to give yourself a chance.
Though I am relinquishing this editorial platform, I would love to hear from you about the memories you made during this time and the fears you conquered that once seemed impossible.
I wish you good health and good spirits in the days ahead and hope to see you again in person very soon.
