It's funny how easy it is to forget that consistent habits will bring about change. We've got a lot of struggles like most American (and heck I honestly believe global) families have these days. Adding into our financial struggles is a very large family size to support. I have begun looking for ways to make a stronger financial contribution to our family by different ways than simply making more money. Looking for multiple ways to cut costs I've sourced recipes for making my own laundry detergent, fabric softener, hand soap, and bathroom cleaners.
I have also redone our resumes (both hubs and my own) and have been non stop sending them out everywhere I can think of. For myself a lot of my resume sending has been within my own organization. When I returned to work after losing my job, I was only able to get into a part time position. I took 2nd shift nights in order to get the shift differential to close the gap a teeny bit on the income I had lost. Honestly it didn't come close.. Hourly I had been making $19 change full time, and went down to $14 by working 2nd shift..but only half the hours. Scary pay hit.. I've had one interview for full time already (can start applying after six months employment but usually don't get interviews until your one year mark when they think you are solid about staying with the company)...and yesterday I got called for another interview.
Consistency is what gets change accomplished in life. I don't know if I'll get this job.. (I am definitely praying though lol)... but being consistent has gotten me the opportunity to try for it. And that's what I have to remind myself.. So when yesterday's big green ugly post came up.. I was given the blessing to be reminded that it is the daily effort that yields results when the phone rang calling me in for the interview. Each and every day makes a difference. So grateful to be reminded of that.
