I was just going to do one post today, the continuation of my cancer story. Then something threw me for a loop and I needed to vent, I needed to write and I needed a space to air my thoughts. Then I remembered how a lot of the blog I follow always put up a
Patience is something I have little of, I don’t know if it is the world I grew up on or if it is my personality but being patient isn’t something I do well. My grandmother also wasn’t a very patient person so perhaps it is genetic. I’m better if there is a time limit on how long I have to be patient, like you have to be patient but only until August 26th. Being patient though with no end date is not something I do well.
Ok that is an understatement, it is not only not something I do well it’s something that sends me into full manic mode. A great example of this just happened (hence why I’m writing about it because I’m trying to stay calm and just be PATIENT) I had an interview for set up in two weeks for a new role I’m really excited about in the company. Two weeks doesn’t seem like a long time, I applied for the job about a month before. Not bad in terms of waiting, something not ideal for me but not horrible.
Then I get an email from my potential boss saying that the interview is on hold until there is further communication from the VP. The heads of the departments are going to be relocating and there is a new structure that is going to be set up. She then informed me that not only does she think the job will be filled but she thinks they might have more positions, yet a possibility there will be less.
So now I’m stuck waiting. I hate waiting, I hate being patient. In my head I already want to move jobs, switch companies apply for something else and forget this waiting game. In my heart I know that rash decisions are the worse decisions and I just need to chill out. So instead I’ve set a time limit for myself. Be patient for a month, if nothing happens in a month then you can start to look at different opportunities.
Also a tip, don’t tell people who want to point out the positives, it really only pisses you off more 🙂
