Entry 148: All at Once
Tired. Compared to other hard working people who sacrifice so much more of their own time, I shouldn't say that I'm tired. But I feel that way, especially in spirit.
A few weeks ago I was graced with two job opportunities, a full-time position at my current job and a new opportunity with another company. For the entire day I was conflicted; I was dedicated to my current job, but a greater opportunity awaited at the new place. After much thought and consideration, I left my job to work elsewhere.
Saying goodbye to my awesome co-workers wasn't that hard, in retrospect, since I've been raised in a military family that moved every few years. Goodbyes are second nature to me. But all things end at some point.
Even stress. Transitioning to my new job has been both fun and taxing, since I started working there during my last two weeks in Goodwill. Each job is not that overwhelming, but commuting 45 minutes each way only adds to the pressure. Especially when dealing with traffic.
And to top things off, I've cut out things from my life that used to bring me joy, but I've let go of them since they have a negative impact on my life. These past two weeks have been all over the place, and it's not slowing down just yet. By December, I should be in a better situation, hopefully. Until then, I'll reflect on how God has blessed my life in ways I did not expect.
