Taking chances

Monday, March 11, 2013

Sometimes life is a gamble... I am learning this a little late, especially since I am usually on the safer side of the fence: don't disrupt the order of things, don't run with scissors... you know... that kind of being.

But sometimes, life throws you are curveball and things NEED to change and you HAVE TO take a chance on something new, and the only thing that is really holding you back, you. sad is that to think of! emoticon

But that is how it is sometimes, and I'd rather rip off the bandaid and realize it now before life goes on without me!

Another EWW!!! emoticon What a horrible thought!!! But let's face it, sometimes that happens to people.

Well, today I took a chance and threw a resume into cyberspace.

That alone was weird to do...who the heck knows if I will get a call, but really, there is no time like the present when it comes to certain things, and this, is probably one of those times.

Why not??? What is it going to hurt? Absolutely nothing.

What is weird is that I have no nerves about it - and usually, I am a bundle of nerves lately! emoticon We shall see....

Weird that I am not holding my breath either... life's curveballs have had that affect on me since the last 2 months have come to pass...

Anyway, we shall see... we . shall . see...

    Good for you! As someone stated above, things that are worth having, are worth taking a risk for. And, of course, if you didn't put it out there (your resume), it would not get looked at.

I for one, think good things will happen for you!!!!

Love you and Best of Luck!

    If we don't take chances in life, chances are that... nothing will ever happen! Nothing bad but nothing good, either. I'm glad you decided to take a chance and one that's much different from what you're used to do.
I wish you the very best of luck!

    Thanks guys...for all of the support lately, especially since it is not really weightloss or maintenance related.

On that front - things are status quo....still in maintenance range and a 5K looming on March 23rd that I talked a friend into doing! LOL We are both in for it since there are hills involved!!!! If anything, it will be a good laugh and reunion! emoticon

    Best of luck! emoticon

Sometimes you have to throw those arrows out there like a wish with wings emoticon and just see what happens!

Leaping into the unknown can sometimes be the most fulfilling experience!

emoticon And in the meantime, just keep swimming!

    emoticon it's very courageous of you to post your resume. Be wary of the Sales jobs, they usually are the first to contact you, unless of course you're looking for a sales position, in that case you're lucky!

I had a job for 3 years...even though I wasn't exactly happy with the people on it the job was not a bad job. It happen to be one where people were ELECTED into the positions every 3 years. One year all 5 people (who then makes up all other staff's BOSS) CHANGED.
I didn't get along with the new person...and I couldn't please her FOR NOTHING.
She personally campaigned I BE FIRED. She was nearly successful.
Thanks be to GOD and whatever else I had did right I was transferred to an adjoining office. STILL under the same umbrella but working with a group of DIFFERENT PEOPLE.
I have to admit...I kicked and screamed GOING...BUT when I got there it was PARADISE. I haven't regreted the move YET.
SO GLAD A CHANGE was made...even though it was one I didn't want at the time.
SO GLAD I didn't jump ship or cut my own nose off between "the move". Been on my job now for 9 YEARS.

CHANGE can be a good thing...GOOD LUCK. emoticon
