I have a new job! Praise the Lord!

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

If anyone has read my blogs in the past, then you will know that I have had tremendous struggles at work over the past few months. I finally came to the realization that the stress was undermining all my efforts at good health, so I began my search for a new position a couple of months ago. I wanted to go into sales again, but unfortunately, I haven't been able to get more than two interviews; the first one I didn't get hired and the second one I turned the job down because it had absolutely no benefits...
Well...I applied for another job recently with the state government...and surprised even myself when I was one of the top candidates! I went and took their skills verification test, thinking I wasn't going to be in the top four, which would get you an interview, and surprised myself again...I got a call for an interview...Unfortunately, it was during the week my boss was on vacation, so I ended up doing a phone interview. I thought for sure this would disqualify me...but they hired me! I am so happy! It is at a higher salary, with better hours and I start the 29th! With the different hours I will be able to get to the gym more easily during the week.
Thanks for all my Sparkfriends who said a little prayer for me and supported me when I was down!
Thank the Lord in Heaven also for all good things come from above!

    Glad to hear your good news.

Stress is not only bad for your mental well being, it also leads to weight gain around the mid-section, which is bad for your major organs - and is so hard to shift.

I'm talking from bitter experience, but 3 years on I'm fitter, healthier and happier.
