I absolutely won’t be trying this #doorchallenge anytime soon….my aching back just watching these girls get into this position and then reverse and then again. But they did it. And grammed it. Challenge: complete.
My own challenge comes in form of a new job. Sort of. What? Yup. After a decade with the same company and my degree just sitting on its haunches, I happened into a position with the competition (also a far larger organization). While, the initial position is essentially a lateral move, the potential for growth is better and with a large, well-run organization there are countless other benefits.
I can’t explain it, but there is a tremendous sense of peace in this decision both with myself and with the Hubs. The peace, I am certain, lies in the job itself opening to a Full-time position when I wasn’t even looking. Good friends, old friends, who unknown to me at the time, were background cheerleaders to the powers that be before and after my interview. The timing is quick, with little time to second-guess and drag it out. Basically, knock, open, go in. God is in control. Fully. With no doubt. And I’ve been here before, when He opened the door to our house. Sometimes, those prayers of “Please….God….I am dense and thick and need you to make this clear as day”, really DO get answered. Not always right away, not always the way I think I want them to be answered, but it does happen. And it’s just WOW. Really. Wow.
I mean, I know NO one at this office. It’s brand new, Opening day is September 8. My 7 minute drive and 5 mile world just opened up to about a 30-ish minute commute and a 20-something mile world. What. The. Heck. It’s all good though and clearly I’ll have more time for phone calls and podcasts with additional time in the car.
It will be an interesting year ahead and I’m excited to see what lies ahead. It’s time. And I’m up for the challenge! So, here’s hoping I’m hopping from the fire to the pan and not vice versa!
