Hey guys! After my seriously unplanned blogging hiatus, I am so happy to announce that I am back. I’ve had a crazy fe months after starting a new job filled with lots of learning and adjustments. As most of you know who follow any of my social media accounts, I walked out of my old property management job back in September and just quit without any notice. I had literally reached my breaking point with it and could not continue on any longer with that company so, I stepped out on faith that something bigger and better was out there for me, and let me tell you what, my faith paid off!
I walked out of my job on a Monday and went home that evening and went straight to work on updating my resume. I posted it on several different job sites and by Tuesday afternoon I had several calls with companies wanting to interview me. One of those calls was from an Electrical Contracting company that had just opened up a location here in Fort Walton Beach. I have never worked in Electrical or Construction fields, so I was kind of skeptical about even interviewing with them but my gut was telling me to just go see what type of position they had to offer. I interviewed with them on Thursday morning, and at the end of the interview the HR director and the Division Manager shook my hand and thanked me for coming by to interview with them and let me know that they would be making their decision soon. So to me, that meant that they didn’t like me and that I didn’t get the job but I left there still hopeful. Then before I even made it a mile up the road, they called me and said that they had tried to run out and catch me before I left the property but I had already turned off the street. But much to my surprise, he said that they did not want to interview any more candidates for the position because they felt like I would be a good fit. I literally kinda screamed a little into the phone because I was so excited and thankful to have gotten a job with such a great company and so fast too. And the icing on the cake? They were going to pay me several more dollars an hour more than my past job. So can we talk about what a huge blessing this is?
I started working for them the following week full-time and that is where I started falling behind on my blogging. I had so much to learn (And still do) that I was going home every day after work trying to take tutorials on programs that we were going to be using and just trying to take it all in. Then there is also the fact that I was suffering from some pretty severe insomnia at the time (which I am still currently battling but it has gotten a little bit better since then). And I have had a few health issues with my hormones again and stuff so I stay very tired all the time and have absolutely no energy whatsoever, But even though that part sucks, I truly feel so much better now that I am back working full-time and taking better care of myself once again.
So I feel like now I’m at a place in my life and with my job where I am comfortable and confident enough to take on blogging again. I know and have not forgotten how much work it can be, but I miss it and the blogging community too. So I know that blogging again is not going to be easy, especially with me working as much as I do, And I have no real plans or any kind of guide as to what I plan on posting or when, so I am basically just going to “wing it” like I do everything else in life. I kinda feel like this is just what is the best for me and my blog. I mean this method may not be for everyone but I truly feel like it is what is going to work for me right now at this busy time in my life.
I am so happy and thankful these days to be working for such a great company and with some really nice gentlemen. I was worried a little at first about working with all men, but honestly I think I actually prefer it now because there is no drama at my job. We just all do our jobs and help each other out when needed, then we go home. It is nothing like my old job where I stayed so stressed out all the time and cried at least once a week because of that awful place. It is such a nice, refreshing change to be actually looking forward to things at my job and to have such a supportive team of co workers as well. I feel like God was truly looking out for me when he sent me their way and I could not be more thankful.
I hope that you guys will forgive me for being MIA for so long and come back again soon. I look forward to reconnecting with each of you and to getting back into my blogging groove soon. TTYS!
