With me accepting the full-time position and turning in my two weeks’ notice at the library I am both sad and excited. Sad because I am convinced that the library staff is gonna make me cry and we all will miss me being there, lol. Excited for a new chapter to begin in my life. I know what they will miss most is a young person with excellent work ethics and a positive outlook in life.
Every job that I’ve had I am sad when I’ve grown out of it. I do my best in every position I’ve held and I strive to be the best at whatever I do. Employers love it; co-workers love it or hate it. All depends on their personal hang ups. I’ve discovered that most people who have a problem with me, don’t actually have a problem with me. For the most part it is something they see in me that they wish they had for themselves. Regardless none of the in job drama deters me from doing my job and doing it well.
As I am writing this, I feel that this post sounds a little egotistic. So please understand this: I have battled insecurities my entire life. From a dad that called me names to a mom that didn’t really pay me any mind I had no sense of support, encouragement, or feeling of being understood. It took me a long time to be able to receive compliments like those, let alone, actually have the courage to believe them for myself. So yes I believe in me!! Who else will if I don’t? I’ve given my work my all. Doing so is what produced a quality worker. Especially because I have worked with some pretty awesome teams. You can really only be a good as the group you are apart of!
I always strive to help others. In small ways, in big ways, in all ways I want to help. This is the foundation of being good a my job(s). My background is in customer service so I’ve seen all walks of life and dealt with people from every genre of human being. And, I still love people for exactly who they are. Meeting people at their point of need is a key to understanding how to help someone. My excellent work ethic and positive outlook on life is making room for me to grow & continue to have life experiences that nurture who I am; as well as, who I am destined to be. For this, I am blessed.
I can’t really take credit for who I’ve become. I believe that each stage in life unfolds exactly as it is supposed to. We are often being prepared for what’s to come. No one knows what the next day will bring. This is why it is important to live each day on purpose. I trust in the unknown of life. Right around the corner lies everything I need. I trust that Christ died for the Word to be true. This makes me understand that today’s trouble is enough for today and I need only get through this day. I balance working hard with doing nothing so I’m still surprised at who I’ve become.
