See…had I started this article early last week I would have had to put all my good news in next weeks post. Luckily for me, I pushed this off and that was my golden ticket because timing is everything.
Okay so I haven’t been feeling fulfilled at my job. Im able to complete the work fine but my heart isn’t in it and I feel like somebody else would be better for the position, so I debated for a while and even though I didn’t have another job at the time, I put my two weeks in and I felt good about that move…so I settled in to this decision.I’m continuing taking steps toward being self employed and one thing I needed to do was get control of my schedule and my money so in the mean time I hear a club was hiring bottle girls. This was perfect timing because if I could snag a position, that could be a good little amount of money coming in. Turns out, I missed the casting call, it happen the week before and I was so frustrated..but I mean.. I chose to put in my two weeks before I had a solid position anywhere else so I really owe the frustration to myself.
I won’t lie though, as soon as I found out I missed that gig I was a little nervous because its like damn “ I’ll have a few more paychecks after my last day but I don’t have another job & I have xzy amount of bills & and I want to go on that trip…..etc..” So I decided to go home and on my way I remembered I had a application to turn in so I dropped it off and the manager said he’d call me. So..I mean that was cool. One for one so at least the day wasn’t a complete fail.
A few days goes by and I don’t get a call from the manager and I’m like dammnn man. But even through my doubt I knew I made the right decision as far as putting in my two weeks. I can’t get to where I want to be if I’m not entirely happy at the place I’m working for 8+ hours a day so it was a move I needed to make to better my internal health.
Any ways Friday rolls around and I’m thinking that since I still hadn’t heard back from the manager maybe I’ll offer my services to my job part time- that way I’d still be bringing in some money but I’d have more time in the day to put in applications and others things while still I transitioning out of that job.
My plan was to tell my boss about my idea after break but as soon as I clocked back in- he left for the day so that kinda sucked.
I got a call as soon as I came back from break but I couldn’t answer it so I listen to the voicemail on my way home. It was the manager and he called to offer me an official position! We didn’t even have an interview, we just had a nice little convo when I turned in my application and I he liked me enough to offer me a job!
This story is all to say that it’s important to make the decision that you feel is internally right for you. Bills will always be there, things will always need to get paid, but if you’re not happy doing what you’re doing then what’s the point in doing it?
