Happy Tuesday! It's time for the first Small Treasure Tuesdays of 2011 with Chantel. Hard to believe we're already at 2011, but well...there you are...
Anyway, so I always feel like when I write about small treasures when they are really, in fact, big treasures, but this one is too great to not talk about. Last week I interviewed for a new position (I won't go into what exactly the position is because I do like to keep my work somewhat anonymous here on this blog), but it's not in child protective services and it allows me a lot more freedom and control over what I'm doing. I was so excited about the job description when I saw the job posting, and I was even more excited when I got called in for an interview last week. And just yesterday I found out that I got the job!
The funny thing is that I have been driving myself crazy the past weekend convincing myself that I didn't get the job. That's how I roll. If I prepare myself for the worst, then I won't be surprised when what I want to happen doesn't happen. I think the term is called pessimism. You know, those people who say that the glass is half empty or half full? Well, in my little world, there is no glass because it was half empty with beer, someone knocked it over in a drunken stupor, and now there are just glass shards. Everywhere. (See what I mean with the negative thinking?)
But the negative thinking wasn't necessary this time around...because I got it! I'm so excited because it is something I'm passionate about, and I really think this job will give me the opportunity to grow in my career. Official start date is January 24th. Thank you everyone on twitter and facebook (and here, too) for positive thoughts and prayers. I truly appreciate them!
