I had a job interview yesterday evening, and I was so excited about the prospect of working with this organization (of which I will remain nameless). It had some awesome perks, yet some down falls as well. One of the job requirements was that I would be a field agent (that title sounds awesome!), however, my job would be spent in my car traveling from home to home, school to school, helping those with autism and implementing behavior techniques. It sounds amazing..however, driving everyday that much, would get old, and fast. Also,there would be so many training days that were on weekends, and at this point in my life, weekends are the only time I get to hang out with my boyfriend, and I am not willing to give those up. Having said that, I got to thinking about what I like about my job, and what I don't and weighed my options. Today when I read the email stating that I was hired, I got really uneasy. I contacted my mom, and boyfriend and several friends and had them praying about what I should do. As I was praying, I began to even think a year and further down the road, as this would be a career. I began to think about vacations and breaks, and marriage, and children, and realized that when I am pregnant, I don't want to be driving everywhere everyday. It was a tough decision, but I heard God say to not take the job, so therefore I am not. I am so relieved and excited.
The hard part was differentiating between my fears of changing jobs and if I was or was not supposed to take it.
...and that's the story.
