Good Things Come to Those Who WORK

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Some of you know that I've been looking for a job lately and it's a HARD climate to find work in! Well after sitting around wishing that one would just pop up at my door, I hit the road and started searching. Wouldn't you know it, when you actually put yourself out there good things start to happen!

In two days I had three interviews and two job offers. One paid better and had a fun environment, locally owned, the other was at a nationally owned specialty bakery. I had a hard choice in front of me: do I go for the job I really wanted (the bakery) or the job that was better for me (the cafe)?

I felt like this was a decision that reflected my life. I knew if I took the job at the bakery the temptations would be WAY too much. The job involves sitting down all day. No matter how much I wanted to fulfill my teenage dreams of making cupcakes for a living, I knew I had do to what was BEST for me, not what I wanted most.

The good news is at the end of the day I'm employed (Yippee!) and I know this job will be a way for me to get constant exercise in. Double win!

    emoticon emoticon Way to put yourself out there! You did it! I think you made the right choice - moving is better than sitting. Hope you love your new job and let us know how its going. It's ok to be nervous - everyone is on their first day. Just take a deep breath and let your awsomeness shine thru emoticon
