As of late, I’ve been contemplating a second job, just to make a bit more money. I already make over minimum wage, but with student loans and the fact I’m finished with college and still living at home looming over my head, some extra income would be nice.
Yesterday, one of the places I do some volunteer work for, WAR Chest Boutique, posted on Facebook there as a part time job offering. I didn’t think about it, I didn’t ask anyone’s opinion, I simply updated my resume and sent it in! The part time hours would work with my current work schedule and what better place to find a second job than a place I love being doing the work I love to do?
In my life, I’m very impulsive about certain things, I’ll act without thinking a lot of the time. However, typically with jobs or finances or anything significant to my future, I think them through, ask people’s opinion, never making a quick decision.
Yesterday I just acted and it felt great! It’s an empowering feeling to just go for something you want and try. What’s the worst that can happen?? I don’t get the job and nothing changes in my life and I keep volunteering. The best that could happen would be I get the job, which would be incredible!
Whatever happens I know I didn’t miss an opportunity and I tried. I went for something and that is an accomplishment in itself. Getting past those feelings of worry and self doubt. It’s time I told myself I can do this! I am so anxious/nervous/excited right now I can barely sit still. I can’t wait to hear if I got the position! 🙂
I encourage everyone reading this today, try something out of your box. Go after a dream, do something that will make you feel good even if you’re a bit nervous thinking about it. Push yourself. So many times we just go through life on autopilot, just doing our routine as the world flies by. Take advantage of every opportunity that comes to you, it was put there for a reason.
Send any positive thoughts my way! Hopefully by June, I’ll have a second job!
