Change is hard and scary and exciting…and waiting is so hard!
I am going through some work related changes and have had to make some decisions on what I want to be when I grow up (ignoring the fact that I’m already a grown up who is turning 36 next week). I have interviewed for some amazing opportunities and now I’m waiting for follow up.
I have always been an impatient person. I hate the the saying “good things come to those who wait” because I want it now!
If you can’t tell, I may like being in control and while I know the time frames I was given for hearing back I want them to call me now! I want that certainty that if I turn down an offer because I really want that other job that that other job is going to come through or an equally amazing opportunity will present itself. I want the security of knowing that am contributing to my families financial security.
I am trying not to sell myself short by taking a position I am not passionate about, that is below what I would like to see for my salary, or that doesn’t offer me opportunity to grow. Ultimately I want a job that I don’t dread going to to. That doesn’t make me feel stressed when ever I think of it, and one that I am proud of; so for now I will wait.
