What to do when you're paralyzed with wait and worry?
Thursday, August 02, 2012
We just spent several thousand dollars for me to get my teaching certificate. (I already have a bachelors in Biology.) I've applied to almost every school district in a 30 mile radius - and a couple of private schools - and my phone has yet to ring. I have faith that my Father has something wonderful in store for me, but yet I still sit around, paralyzed with "wait" and "worry." A watched pot never boils, so why am I waiting for the phone to ring? I have to be proactive, and then let the chips fall where they may.
1. Keep the communication channel open with my Father. I'm not willing to be miserable just to secure any ol' position!
2. With all the online applications these days, you can go back and check your applications and make sure you've dotted all the Is and crossed all the Ts. I didn't put my maiden name on one of them, so my mailed transcripts might not have made it into my file!
3. Make any phone calls necessary and get the mail out. Get all the paperwork done I can.
4. Back away from the computer! Go have a good time out in the sunshine to reduce the anxiety instead of turning to food.
I realize that I've been bringing my 3 kids down with me. I want them to have a fabulous summer so I'm not going to let wait and worry bog us down anymore! I hope you all have a wonderful summer!
I think I'll go geocacheing tomorrow!
