(this post wasn't suppose to be here today, after a mistake on my end realizing those with google reader and probably bloglines could read it and some errors on blogger's end, it went up anyway, so i am going to keep it up, even though it is two long posts in one day!)
a few weeks ago, i applied for a job.
the person i applied to, who ultimately is in charge, my boss, thinks i am a perfect candidate for the job. after several interviews, basically led by me, he doesn't see how i could say no.
even the person i would work the closest with, next to my boss, thinks it is a perfect fit. and we would work great as a team. we already have.
me, not so sure. i feel inadequate. i feel unqualified. i am consumed with fear.
the job description is ideal, i would be using a lot of skills i already have and i would be learning a lot of new ones. especially when it comes to patience and relationship building.
i have plenty of experience for this position. that is a given. i have a degree in this field, although it is not necessary to have one at all. a lot of love, dedication and commitment can take you far in this line of work.
i can not complain about the location, it is oh, so convenient. i could reach my destination in a few minutes while drinking a much needed cup of coffee.
the hours will be long and hard at time, but very rewarding. although, i must say, our schedule would actually be so much better than it is now.
the salary, to most, would be undesirable, to me it is not a raise or a pay cut, it is what i am used to making.
the benefits are, well, honestly there are so many, i can think of one it will not have, it is all there, unless my selfish nature takes over and i choose not to see them for what they are worth.
the reason for me taking the job is so important, their are little lives and little souls at stake.
so really, how could i turn this opportunity down?
i won't turn it down, i won't let fear push me to say no.
with all that said, i am so excited and a little nervous to announce...i am taking this new job.
wanna take a guess what it is??
