I just got my first real big girl job!
Finally, at age 26, this late bloomer has reached a milestone and gotten the job that I’ve dreamed about for so long. A real legitimate Big Girl Job. Sure I’ve had other “legitimate” jobs before, but none have been quite as adult as this one. About a year ago I accepted a semi-big girl job. It was far from a dream, but a position in my field, and I was excited to learn. This job required me to wear a super tacky uniform, work 50+ hours a week and I got NO health benefits. Definitely not a big girl job but it was a good start and I believe it was the perfect stepping stone for this position.
As I begin this new journey. I am ecstatic about the new possibilities ahead. A few months ago when I didn’t get the Dallas job I must admit I was a bit discouraged, The fear of never being good enough tried to embed itself in my brain. But after a lot of prayers and a little perseverance, I now see the sunny future casting its light brightly on the Cumberland River just pass the Broadway Honky Tonks.
