It has been a very bittersweet couple of months. I quit my job, for a new job opportunity that didn’t end up working out. I then went unemployed for a few weeks searching for a new job tirelessly. I got a new job that wasn’t quite what I was looking for but it has been a great opportunity and much better than the last “new job”. It’s such a new schedule and much longer days. I’ve really had to adjust a lot that I was used to doing.
Through all of this, one thing I have thoroughly missed has been my blog. It was such an outlet for me and I can really notice the difference between being able to get my opinions and feelings off my chest in such an open way.
It’s funny that we go through different phases of our life and one minute we have time for a lot of things and the next we barely have time to sit down.
Today, I had a very unfortunate situation come my way in regards to a job application. I won’t go into too many details but needless to say, it didn’t pan out how I had wanted it to. Instead of being sad or upset I decided to look at the positives of this horrible job opportunity.
One thing I know I have a hard time with is confidence when it comes to applying for jobs. I’m afraid to come across as too much, or the opposite, not showcase myself enough. Well, this time I applied over confidently! I souped up my experience(no lies, just some better wording), and I stated that it would be tremendously beneficial to have me as an employee.
Secondly, when I get to the interview part of a job opportunity I clam up and get extremely nervous. It’s like being a little kid all over again. Not this time though! I spoke with poise and integrity and made sure I conveyed my confident demeanor.
Regardless if I got the job or not. Today was hands down the greatest job application experience ever. I appreciate the fact that I can sit back and turn this unfortunate negative into a positive.
Create happiness!!! Turn that NEGATIVE into a POSITIVE!!!!
We have so many things that influence our confidence and how we feel about ourselves. Why is confidence an ongoing struggle?
We worry about weight, looks, our clothes, and our life representation. Somebody can call you fat or make a comment on your appearance and you take it as the hurtful truth. Why do we do this if we know what our truths are?
As a child, I struggled with confidence and I always listened to what others had to stay. As an adult, I have learned to not let what others think affect me, even though other people keep the judgemental tendency most of their lives.
Keep that confidence and press on! Others judgments do not matter at the end of the day because at the end of the day they are not able to change or control your life!
