Occasionally I find I forget what my ultimate aim is. You know the work less to live more goal.
And recently this was exactly what happened: I lost sight of what I wanted. Yes, I dropped the ball.
So what did I do? Well, I applied for a full time job. In my defence, it wasn’t advertised as a full time number; it was advertised as a .8 position. But after applying, I found out there had been a mistake and it was a forty hour week kind of job.
So I withdrew, right? Nope, quite the opposite – I went for the interview! You see, I had cooked up a plan. If I got the job, I’d do it for a while and then when a part time job came up, I’d apply. Forward thinking, right?
Maybe. Maybe not.
Meanwhile, I have come to my senses. I don’t want to work full time for a nano-second longer. I also don’t want to work in libraries anymore. I want to try something different.
And so with this goal in mind, I have set things in motion. I have applied for a four day per week job at a hospice in Whangarei.
I am being interviewed on Monday. I am so excited – what an awesome place to work!
I am praying I will be the successful applicant.
But if I’m not, I know I am now back on track and going in the right direction.
