Last week I told y’all I am leaving my current job to start with a new company. Now, I’ll give you some background. It’s all very God-lead, in my opinion, and I’m just standing back amazed as it all unfolds.
I’ve been intermittently keeping an eye on a local hospital for job openings for some fill-in work on weekends for quite some time now and have barely gotten a bite; talk about your ego bruising. Once again, a PRN (fill in position) came open, my friend let me know and so I said to the Hubs, “this is the last time I put in and then I’m done.”. A week later he encouraged me to send the follow-up email to the director, to which I grudgingly did so, lo and flippin’ behold, she emailed me back and followed up with a phone call to set up an interview the following Monday. The interesting part on the phone call was that she was giving me a pretty detailed time-line of interview, decision, orientation, 2 weeks notice, yada, yada, yada. I hung up with an appointment and totally confused as to why on earth I’d need to give notice for a PRN position.
Obviously I went home that night and scoured the website for other openings that maybe I missed. Sure enough, a full-time position at a new facility of the hospital’s was posted. What? Full-time? Not even on my radar. This was going to be interesting. Now I was just curious as to where this could go and IF I would follow through. If it was meant to be….it would.
I had my interview, which felt comfortable and easy and AN HOUR LONG!!! Waited a whole week and finally, FINALLY got the call. They picked ME!!! The Hubs and I had some decisions to make, and I had a feeling that this might be God’s timing and I would be best suited to follow Samuel’s lead and follow along. I also had a deja vu moment from when I bought the house…read HERE and that worked out beyond my wildest dreams, so yes, I was absolutely curious.
And so, in the end, I leave a job that has been very good to me for the last 10 years and step out into a company that can offer me more opportunity for future growth. The craziest thing is that both the Hubs and I are completely and totally at peace with this decision. It will require some schedule shifting and kid-compliance, probably multiple times over the next several months as the center opens and hits its stride, but everyone is on board.
So, change is a comin’ and even though I don’t love change, I’m ready to embrace what the future holds.
As a bonus, I get some catch up time with friends across the state in the interim, so #WINNING!!
