Yesterday.... rough day.
As I mentioned before, I was offered and accepted the supervisor position for this summer at the pool. However... there is one girl that I was team lead with last summer who will be there for her 8th summer this year. This will only be my 5th. So our boss told her when she came in to work yesterday that I would be the new supervisor and she did not take it well. When I came in (literally 10 minutes after he told her), I heard all sorts of bad news about how she handled it from him as well as one of my other friends who works in the payroll department. I was so nauseous and just wanted to cry. I don't doubt my ability to perform the job, but I don't want things to be awkward or for there to be cattiness and negativity surrounding me all summer because of it.
We had lifeguard training last night, and her and I barely spoke to one another for probably close to 2 out of the 5 hours we were there. THAT was AWFUL. Thankfully it got better as the night progressed, but we're there for 12 hours today, so I'm nervous to see how that goes.
I'm going to try to make the best of it, and I know that everyone has my back in it which is reassuring, but it still is a hard spot to be in :(
Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones who don't.
And believe that everything happens for a reason...
if you get a chance--take it;
if it changes your life--let it.
Nobody said that it would be easy....
They just promised it would be worth it.
