Career choices & stress
Thursday, March 17, 2016
Life is all a big mystery to me. When things look bad, they tend to be bad & I typically get stressed about them. When things are good, i typically give them nothing but a fleeing glance. Also when things are bad, it seems that there are other thubgs that accompany them. Now I do understand it could just ask be in my head and I just start dwelling in all the bad.
There is a point to this rant. I had an opportunity related to my career. I was told that I should apply. Well i did & the very next day I landed a job interview. I'm thinking that it might be a little over my experience level, but i do love change & a challenge. I was also spoken highly of by one of there management team. (For once I know someone in the inside who could help me get this position). It had often felt like that people were getting his based in who they know. Anyways, Im not stressing about the interview (except with what to wear.. lol). I figure that the worst they can do is say no and i would still be in the same position I am.
What I am stessing about is that the very next day, my current job is offering me a weekend position, which would be more money. Money hasnt been meaning everything for me. I took the current position and a pat cut (bc i came off committed weekends). I looked at this as a way to advance my career in leadership and management. I kept thinking that it would be a great thing to add to my resume. But i will admit, thst as the only moneymaker in the household things were getting a little tight money wise.
So if I nail this intervirw on Monday, they could offer me the job. Then this would leave me with 2 positions to chose from. Stress is stress no matter if it is good stress.
Good news is that I've been turning it into a god excuse to exercise vs eating my stress away.
P.S. sorry for any TYPOS. On cell. Big fingers and small key board.
