Life is a funny thing, and if someone figures out what I should do with mine, please let me know.|
After 5 years of being a stay at home mom, I am job hunting. Job hunting has proven much more difficult than I thought it would be. A couple weeks ago I had this grand epiphany that I didn't want to be broke all the time anymore. That there are things I want to do and things I want to make and if I just had a little more money it could happen. I said, "Tomorrow I start looking for a job." With such hope and promise and naivete.
Unbelievably I have not had the flood of job offers that I had expected! I mean, I'm good at everything, right? Experience, pfft. Job history, pfft. They should just know that when I want to do something, I succeed, right?
I am smiling and chuckling to myself while I write this, because I finally woke up. I had a few bad days, disappointed that I was rejected by my first few job choices, unsure of what to do next. But I got over that extreme disappointment and I'm moving on. I'll keep applying for jobs, and someone will hire me eventually.
You should know now, if you've followed my business at all for the last 7+ years (I can't believe I have been making diapers for 8 years!) that I am not a quitter. There might be a lot of things you could say about me (or maybe not?) but one thing you can't call me is a quitter. I like to say I'm going to quit - but I never follow through. It's not a "boy who cried wolf" thing, I truly sometimes believe that quitting would be the best option, but then I change my mind. I like to make stuff, and most of all I love to make diapers. I don't know why, but I feel a deep connection to it. One thing is for sure, I've only gotten better. Execution and technique, always improving.
I'm excited, I'm on the up swing right now, and eager to make some new things. I just need that job...
