Observations: If you know me you know that I have been looking for work for a while now. God, it feels like I have applied to a million places with no word back. However, my luck changed recently. On Friday I got two job offers! Needless to say, I was overwhelmed. I was in a drought and now it was flooding. Soon as Monday rolled around I had a lot to do, which after sitting around all day applying for jobs that seems like throwing stones into an ocean is both a welcome change and a hard one. I packed up my portfolio and toted it in ready for what lie ahead. I’m excited. I’m anxious. I’m appreciative. I’m apprehensive. I’m working through it all the best I know how. This observation is a comment on that saying, which is ever so popular in my family, “everything happens for a reason.” Now I am a firm believer in this idea but that doesn’t make it any easier to trust it. Just because you know, inevitably, the road ahead is the one you are suppose to go down for one reason or the other does not make it any less terrifying or hard or confusing. Trusting your gut when outside forces tell you otherwise is always difficult. Trying to figure out what is best for you and what you really want, which is something only you know, creates a lot of pressure. I have decided that this is a time in my life for exploring, for trying anything and everything, deciding what I like, what I want, and what I need. Here is to new experiences!
