Motivational Monday #30

Welcome back Motivational Monday!

How was your weekend? Ours was great. We spent some time on Saturday with some friends and then heading to the Twins game yesterday (where they beat the Brewers). I may have gotten a little bit of color from the perfect weather 🙂

Today I started a new job (if you didnt know!). I am now working in Downtown St. Paul at the Public Housing Authority as a Rental Technician. All that means is that I am working with one other person to determine a persons/families eligibility for Section 8 housing. Trying to decide if I wanted to take this job or not was actually quite hard for me. I would be giving up a lot of flexibility and closeness that I had at my current job but I would be gaining more money and a chance to move up and grow. What it all boiled down to was the drive. Yeah yeah I know a lot of people commute but ever since I’ve had a job, they have been no more than 15 minutes from me. Which is super close! Now my drive is 30 miles exactly. This morning it took me about 45 minutes and then I had to drive around to figure out where to park. Not knowing the area very well, it took me a little time to get it all figured out!

Sooo with all of that being said, I came across this quote recently that really resignated with me. Especially with deciding to go outside of my box a little bit and accept this job.

I decided to take the job based on the fact that I was stuck in my job. There was no room for growth and there was no way I was ever going to make the money that I was offered there. Even as we went to bed last night, I was still second guessing my decision. Bill said something that also made me feel better. Now I have the opportunity to grow and if I dont like it, I can move on (I knew there was a reason I was marrying him ;))
I made a choice that reflect my hopes. My hope to move up in a company. My hope to grow as an individual as well as a professional. No matter how much I fear about not being good at the new job, or fearing a whole new environment. or having a long drive to and from work. I chose hope instead of fear.
How was your weekend?

What choices have you made that reflect your hopes not fears?
