'Cause every little thing,
is gonna be alright!
The past couple of weeks have been so hard on me. I've been out of work for a good eight months, because I left my job right when Christmas hiring finished, so I've been so stressed for money and worrying about financing college that it's been driving me crazy.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired on at In Shape. Called in, filled out the paper work, had my passport scanned and everything. All that was left was my background check, and the front desk manager told me that I would be in to work in less then a week. Unfortunately though, it's been two weeks since the supposed start date, and not a single phone call.
I was really anxious about it, until I ran across this photo.
Well, it just reminded me how even when things seem really bad, there's always a silver lining. For instance, two years ago- in a mood, I decided to cut off my long hair into a faux hawk without thinking about the consequences. For the longest time I had to go through horrible phases of hair awkwardness, and felt unattractive, and sad without my comforting long blankets of hair falling over my shoulders.
However, it wasn't until I accepted that sometimes things go wrong, and complaining and feeling bad about it wasn't going to fix anything- that I began to regain my self confidence and started to rock that short hair like I owned the world. Then, because I found contentment in myself, others began to approach me constantly, asking if I was a hair stylist and where I got my hair done. It was great!
So this just reminded me... You know what, even when things seem hopeless, and you feel anxious, or worried- God has blessed you!
You don't have to worry about anything!
So what if In Shape didn't work out? There are so many other opportunities and I refuse to waste them!
