Waiting to get on the train

Life is a bit strange.  Such a love/hate relationship. All you can do is always hope and/or pray for the best which is what I’ve been doing a lot since I have a lot of time on my hands. 

Waiting in the lineup of the unemployment train to the land on further opportunities is quite exhausting mentally and emotionally.  I have so much joy every moment someone calls for an interview but then you drive yourself crazy afterwards in the waiting period of the callback.  Will they call you in a few days? A week or two? Can I even hold out for that long since I hate to be bored and feel useless? I can only organize and clean the house so many times before my mind starts to go blank.  At least I’ve been able to try 4 new cooking recipes that my husband now calls his new favourites.   So it’s been good and bad.   My mantra for the moment is

“God will never take something away from you without the intention of replacing it with something better”

So that’s comforting…  I think of this everyday and I try to think positively everyday that I’m meant to have something better. That I’m meant for bigger and better things. That God has a plan for me and that’s why I’m this position of … Whatever this is. Good news is that I’ve had quite a few interviews already and a couple sound very promising but like I said it’s just the callback waiting period. I’m hoping things turn in a good direction next week. I can’t wait to start something new and have a fresh slate to work from. I am thankful for the experiences I have had so far and I know that will help with my new endeavours. So fingers crossed ladies and gents for me.

On a different note. I have rekindled my love with photography. All thanks to my darling husband for giving a DSLR for Christmas. I was a little upset at him at first for spending so much money on a camera for me but really … I couldn’t be mad at him too much. He’s so supportive of me and he knows how much I have been missing photography and my dreams of it so it was the best sentiment. Anyways, I have been taking a lot of photos lately. I’ve been trying to practice especially during my niece’s first birthday party. I took A LOT of photos so I have a lot of editing ahead of me which I’m pretty excited to do. Editing on photoshop is one of my favourite things to do. I just want to make them as gorgeous as possible so that my sis and bro in law will have the most amazing memories of their daughter’s first birthday. It will mean so much for the both of us.

So summarize my goals for the short term (and long term, however I want to think of it)

Get myself a new kick ass new job
Work on my photography and practice the hell out of my editing skills.
