It’s only Tuesday and I’ve already had a busy week. My life will change pretty soon, mainly due to a new opportunity that I have almost finalized. A good friend told me that you never stop looking for job opportunities and other ways to improve your situation, he was right.
Working in social services keeps you on the look-out because things can change quickly, especially when grants, partnerships and government agencies are involved, both for the good and the bad. Some things go through a multi-step process, which takes time. Even working in a social service job, you learn to be prepared for the unexpected on a daily basis. You have good days and challenging days, hard days and easy days, and then there are the days you want to run off screaming. I have had many of those in my life, and definitely in the recent past. Some of these moments were brought on by me, some by my work environment. The Serenity Prayer comes to mind –
Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.
Changes can be hard but necessary, and a change of scenery can re-ignite your interest and motivation. In my case, I am optimistic that this opportunity will be an improvement for me, my skills, and my future. Wish me luck, and I’ll keep you posted.
