"Listen to your heart....and put one foot in front of the other"

While I don't put much faith into horoscopes, I find them fun and interesting to read. So when I got my new phone, one of the apps I downloaded was a horoscope one. I send E and Mel theirs almost daily (especially when they seem appropriate for whats going on) but I have to say, mine have been DEAD ON. It is crazy. I know its not real, but they are fun regardless, especially when they are so close to whats going on :)

Things this past year (or more really) have been rough on me. I mean R O U G H. Horrible breakups, get back together disasters, and more breakups, and huge disappointments on the job front. Between the letdowns in the guy department and me being disappointed with my job for quite some time...I was starting to get really down. But still, I perservered. After quite a bit of work and prayer...things are really starting to get better. When I went to the beach, I made my "job" for the week to find a new job. And so I spent an hour or two each morning (before hitting the pool for 8 hours) looking feverishly for jobs. After applying for what seemed like a zillion jobs, I was fortunate enough to get a few interviews that seemed promising. After a big let down, I thought I should quit. I had an interview lined up for another position, but thought it may not be worth my time. I even cancelled the first interview. But something told me to reschedule, so I did. I had my first interview, and it went SO well. But then I got a bit of a scary email making me think I may not have a chance. But after talking to them they said come in, we really think its worth your time. So I went to my second interview, which also went well. I didnt expect to hear back for a good week,but heard back the next afternoon! I got the job!!!!!! It's closer to home AND MUCH better pay. YAYYYYY!!!! Maybe I'll stop eating pasta for every meal now! :) So last Thursdays horoscope(I'm a Cancer):

"Life is too short to...quick moonchild, how would you fill in that blank? The first thing that comes to mind is the first think you need to concentrate on. Somewhere in your life you are dissatisfied.  You have been treading water or spinning your wheels or going through the motions for too long.  Now it's time to change the status quo. You may be so caught up in some routine that you aren't sure how to go about changing anything. But you can do it. Listen to your heart, and put one foot in front of the other"

And so I did. I took the new job, and my first day is Monday Sept. 27. What a huge change!!! I'll still be processing loans (only mortgages now though), but with a totally different company. I've been with mine for 8 years. While I love my coworkers, it was time for a change. (WAY OVERDUE). I am so thankful.

Things aren't just looking up on the job front, but in my personal life as well. :)

How refreshing it is to not only be blessed with a brand new job, but an awesome new bf too :) 

Life is so good :) xo
