Thankful Thursday 9/4/2014

Today I received two more letters of recommendation and they were really nicely written. Sometimes I get very insecure how I'm perceived by people, especially at work. I guess I'm not as bad as I think I am.

I have decided that I am going to get something temporary here and save up as I wait for Wisconsin or wherever I wind up. As I said to my friend last night, "I'm just letting go and letting things fall where they may. I am focusing on things that are in my control, like a job here first for experience and savings." My friend agreed and said,"Yes, that's correct, focus on what you can control not what you can't." It took me a while to understand that and I am feeling thankful about it. This is my choice, I'm doing what is best for me right now to get to a place where I will have more options.

I am going to post something later. I applied to a handful of jobs today and I do have an interview with a temp agency for a temp only position on Monday. Fingers crossed. I'm calling it a day since I worked on resumes all morning. I took my walk, but now I'm going to write.

    1. Agreed. :) I'm going to ace this interview on Monday with the temp agency, save up and then in the Spring I'll start looking in the Midwest again. Maybe with more experience and some more funds in the bank, it'll be more successful than now. I miss having a 2nd job honestly, so I'm looking forward to it and looking forward to something new (also knowing that I am not stuck here forever and this will be step 1 in the larger picture... baby steps).

  2. Great advice! :) Things that you can't control aren't your fault, no matter what some people say.

    1. That's so true, Andrew! I'm reading a book about that now.
