The puzzle pieces are clicking together! A short time ago I blogged about me not getting the job. I said I knew there would come a time that I could look back on my disappointment in retrospect and understand why the job wasn’t mine.
A short time ago I wasn’t there yet though, and I did not see the bright side.
Well that has changed, and as promised here is my update:
To refresh you on where I was with all of this, I pretty much allowed myself to really feel the disappointment of not getting hired by the accounting firm, and I didn’t try too hard to look for a bright side in that moment. I did trust however that I would get my answers…
The other day out of the blue I received an email from yet another accountant. Chris Haviaris is a fellow Toastmaster from the public speaking club I belong to, and a friend. She needs someone to market an upcoming workshop of hers, and she thought of me.
Would I be interested to help market a workshop about …..get this….Improving your relationship with money!
Not only would I market the workshop, I would also get to attend it. This is a two month project. Of course I told her an enthusiastic YES!
Even though the previous job was with an accounting firm, I see how much more Chris and I have similar personal philosophies about life. We are such a better fit to work together, and we have something more to give to each other.
And even though this job is temporary, the benefits from working with Chris fit so well with my own personal and financial goals.
Also, after NOT getting that first job at the accounting firm, I have since interviewed for a marketing position at a Holistic Wellness Center; a holistic wellness center whose mission statement talks about the importance of incorporating Body, Mind, and Spirit in your everyday life.
This is so in tune with who I am and where I am going. I have a second interview with them in a few weeks!
I suppose this means that there will be a part 3 to this blog
I will continue to let life unfold, and extract my lessons from it. Life shows me that it is totally OK to feel crappy or disappointed, and it is totally OK to get your hopes up. It’s not necessary to put up walls! I will allow myself to get excited about the possibility of a new full-time job at a Holistic Center because even if it doesn’t work out, experience has shown me that at some point there IS a bright side. Doors close, windows open…it’s not a cliché.
I will also enjoy the unfolding of this accounting workshop.
Until next time,
With Love & Fireworks,
