It's been a hard month, but August is nearly done. Summer is drawing to a close. I cannot tell you what the fall will bring. Even though I have not officially wound up this job, I received a surprising call today. A new position is being created, and I have been invited to apply for it. A chance meeting months ago made an impression. Who knows what will happen next, but it looks as if I might have a choice in where I go from here.
It sounds strange to say, but up to this point I have not had a lot of opportunity to choose in my life. I've always ended up doing what needed doing. I've always ended up making the responsible decisions. Stepping into my current job was the first time in years that I had the luxury of taking a job because I wanted to do it, as opposed to taking the job because I didn't have a choice. Just the fact that I am looking at opportunitieS is awfully exciting, and I am so grateful for that.
