I have news!! I bagged a full time job (not the crazy interview process one, still awaiting results on that!). I feel so rewarded to get a job in this crazy economy...months of effort have finally paid off! Independence is mine again! Yoohooo!! Its taking me a while to get used to the working routine especially because I wasn't working full time since the past two years! It feels great to be back in the world of work! It pays heed to my extreme need of achievement! At times I feel that I am too hard on myself but hey it paid off! Those loooong application forms, justifications as to why I am the best for a given job, what I will bring to it etc etc...Now I am on the other side of the table at interviews! I ask the questions and I decide whom to hire! That is sweet victory indeed!
In this post I would like to take the opportunity to thank my parents. First Dad - He has been this constant source of support and encouragement without which I would have been broken. My usual morning chat with him helped me persevere through the day.Even on the bleakest of days he made me smile and reminded me about all my blessings. He listened to my woes and anxieties with a calm only wisdom brings to one. He was this bundle of positive energy and that energy somehow helped me survive unemployment.
Now about Mum - My Mum was always there - listening, cheering me up and providing encouragement like only a mother can do. Just speaking to her every evening soothed me and filled me with renewed zest to tackle another day. I am indeed thankful to God for giving me such wonderful parents! Love u both :)
