I knew it would be a great day when it began with creamy pumpkin naner oats. Mmmm
For a mid-morning snack I had a Cascadian Farm harvest spice granola bar that I got as a sample from VegFest! It was just like the Nature Granola bars, but this one had more flavor and flax seeds! It’s quite high in sugar, but I’d eat this again.
And then I got a job! I will be doing marketing and more (personal training and some reception) for a physical therapy/ pain clinic.
I’ve been pretty quiet about my job search since I left my last marketing job because I tend to keep big things private in general. I got my personal training certification since fitness and health are my passions, but I also have a degree in PR that I actually enjoy using. While visiting gyms in the past month I knew working as a PT alone wouldn’t be right for me. I needed something more so I tried to figure out a way to merge the two. (Note: In August I began a part-time retail job to help get me by.)
After months of applying to jobs that sparked my interest- and to plenty of jobs that depressed me- I decided to post my resume online instead of just applying to specific jobs. I was soon after contacted for an interview, which led to this week. The clinic is definitely hiring me but I won’t find out the specific details until later today or tomorrow.
These past several months were some of my hardest. I went from successful and financially-secure to unemployed with no hope in the future. I’d be so anxious and worried about my future- and it affected so many other areas of my life, too. It affected how I thought of myself.
So I prayed. God then showed me that no matter how serious and desperate my problems look, he will still be in control. In the grand scheme of things, my unemployment was nothing compared to who I am or who he is in me.
I realized that, adjusted my faith and soon after got a job. Funny how things work.
Always remember every valley brings a mountain.
For lunch I brought out the grill. I had a Dr. Praeger’s burger, asparagus, yellow squash and some
wilted fresh spinach with a soy ginger dressing. Now I want something sweet!
I’m not jumping up and down yet because I haven’t signed any papers, but once I do I think there should be some celebrating!!
What is your favorite thing to grill?
