So my hunt for a new job continues. It’s a strange process, having only 2 jobs in 20 years makes me rusty at the art of the interview. I have had several promising interviews, however once everything is out on the table my skills and their need don’t match up, and that’s ok.
Being a long term employee is a good thing, it also makes you REALLY evaluate the place you want to work. You want to be an asset, but at the same time, work in an environment where you feel comfortable and like your part of the team. So, the search continues.
It’s stressful being in a partnership where your lack of job could hurt things you have worked years to achieve. Karl (my spouse) has been nothing but supportive, but it’s just that feeling where you don’t want to let down your other half.
Now separate from my job hunt is our foster and adoption journey. Which is wonderful and scary and frustrating all at the same time. It’s a Labyrinth to navigate at times, and I’m getting advice for how to go about various different things. But not knowing whether the advice I’m getting is sound, or if I should ignore it. So add that to my job stress, and you have one heck of a ride.
So today I’m choosing to be positive and know that the right opportunity will present itself at the right time. Until then I just need to trust and stay in good spirits, and with that….Christmas might come a tad earlier this year, as that always puts me in a good mood. 🙂
