Transitions and Change

It's FiYAY! I don't know about you but I am so excited to start the weekend! I've got lots of  cleaning to do + a fun blog shoot on deck! As promised, I wanted to fill ya'll in on all the changes that have been going on in my life but I promise to keep it short(ish) and sweet...

Alrighty here's the quick and dirty. Back in late August, exhausted from yet another stent of job hunting, I applied for a social media position that I heard about via Instagram. Because of my history with the job market and my frustrations with the process, I went home, filled out an application and sincerely thought that I would never hear anything back.

Maybe it was my stubbornness or plain exhaustion from trying, but it was in the moments right after clicking "send" that I decided this would be the last job I applied for. I was done. If I didn't hear back I would save as much as I could and take the leap and move to Atlanta in January, like I'd secretly been wanting to do for months. And that was it. My mind was made up. All systems were a go.

But I heard back in 3 days, had a phone interview on day 4, an in person interview on day 8 and an offer letter in my inbox on day 12. I went from over it to employed and living in a new city with a new job in three and a half weeks, all because I saw one post on Instagram. Talk about a curve ball.

For those of you who know me personally or if you've been following along here for a while, you know that I had been searching for a job in my field for a little over a year. Even though it took a lot longer than I ever thought it would to find something, I am a firm believer in the Lord's perfect timing, so I know that my journey to this place was no accident. I'm so thankful for my new position and I am finally settling into my new life away from home. Plus, in true Morgan fashion, I'm making friends which has seriously made the transition 100% easier.

Outside of that I'm feeling like a major adult these days....and its weird. I really enjoy the #girlboss feeling I get from taking care of myself and my home and most nights I'm in bed before 11pm. In a lot of ways I see a new person growing in my old self and so far I'm enjoying this new chapter in my life.

Now, I don't know what stage you're at in life but if you're searching for a job, no matter what field, I've got a little unsolicited advice for you. Don't EVER give up on yourself, don't settle and don't let people talk you out of your dreams. Think about it this way, for months and months I was only good enough to be a company's unpaid intern, but for one company I was good enough to be a paid salaried employee.

I know it can be so hard waiting for God to reveal his plans to you, but it so worth the wait. And even though his answer might not be your "end game", it will always be a positive step in the right direction.
