When you are hit with a disappointment, it can be hard to accept that perhaps there are better things ahead.
It can seem a little cliché. “Everything happens for a reason” “The universe has another plan for you”.
I didn’t get the job.
And for a few hours, I went through the gamut of emotions.
Until I reached “acceptance”
Beaten by a superwoman apparently. Who starts with us next week.
And that’s ok.
Just over twelve months ago, I went through the tumultuous experience of the office I was located at, being closed. It was stressful and awful and at the time, I was hoping to be relocated at an office close to home.
It didn’t happen, and I was disappointed.
But I found myself at the office I am currently working at, and I am so happy.
And the universe this week confirmed that I am where I should be, despite missing out on the full-time job, as the news came through that the other office close to my home would be closing in September. My heart hurts for the girls who are working there and having to go through what I did last year, while I am quietly thankful that I didn’t get my desire to be placed there after all.
Been a bit of a mixed week in this house. While Big C is still on the hunt for full-time work, he has moved from “casual” to “part-time” which at least will give him a bit more job security while he continues to apply for a “real” job.
His savings though, took a bit of a hit this week after a slight lapse in concentration resulted in his first minor car bingle.
Bit of a scrape on both cars and while his car will probably bear the scars forever, the car he hit was nicer and newer and Big C coughed up the cash for a bumper respray, taking full responsibility and making his mother proud.
Ok, enough about kids and work.
Each day is another day closer to my grand adventure. Hubby is finally showing interest, as I google madly and chat online to AT & T. A customer kindly warned me today that American Airlines are very good at losing luggage (we fly with them twice) and I am now on the hunt for a good pair of walking shoes.
Under 100 days now. I just wish the Aussie dollar would regain a little bit more value.
Such is life. It will be amazing, regardless.
Cuppa tea time. Hubby isn’t home to make it tonight. He is busy with his bow and arrows.
Until next time. Keep smiling.
