Stepping Into The Unknown.

Today's post is a lifestyle post where I am going to have a little ramble on about how life is going for me lately. In a nutshell, without sounding cheesy and annoying, I'm the happiest I've ever been. However, lately I've made a change and it scares me a little bit. I've been in my job now for a year and a half and I have had such a good time. I've learn a lot and my confidence has also grown over time after learning that maybe there is something I am actually good at! Maybe there is a job that I can get settled in and feel comfortable. I've always doubted myself with work and if someone praises me I don't tend to take it too seriously as I always have nagging doubts in the back of mind. It's funny how I always remember the negative comments though!
I've got a new job. I applied for the job in October, got an interview in November and got the job a few days later. When I applied, I thought I wouldn't even have a rejection, I just expected to hear nothing! So imagine how pleased I was just to have reached the interview stage. It was pretty nerve racking as I was sat in front of the panel without even a table to half of my body - I was all on show and there was nowhere to run or hide! (Well I could have, but that's no good is it?!) So then imagine my further excitement when I received a phone call a few days later. They had said they will be contacting every applicant even if unsuccessful, so when the call came in that's what I was expecting. I'm not trying to brag so please don't think I am. What I am trying to say is don't let your doubts and anxieties stop you from going after what you want. Don't let anyone tell you what to with your life. This could be for anything, not just work and uni/college.
This just goes to show that if you want to go after something then please do. Don't be afraid of rejection, it really doesn't matter. When I was unemployed for six months (so boring and soul destroying) rejection after rejection kept coming and eventually I just got used to it and the next 'Unfortunately your application was unsuccessful' letter was just another day. Onto the next job application! It took me three interviews to get into the job I am currently leaving and each time I felt like giving up but I got there in the end. I'm so grateful for the opportunity I had there as there is no way I would have got the new job without the experience. If you're wondering what jobs I'm rambling on about, I'm afraid I'm not a supermodel or an FBI agent! I work in the mental health field of the care sector and have now got a new job as a support worker in a hospital environment (Which was my aim).  So, what happens next? Well I'm waiting to start my new job and I'm apprehensive. I keep asking myself 'What if?' scenarios and its an endless circle. What if they don't like me? What if I don't settle in? What if, what if, I could go on all day but I cant! I can let these doubts stop me from making a change into what I wanted to do. I strongly believe that what is meant for you will be. It doesn't matter if you even don't know what you want to do, in the future just go along with it and enjoy yourself.
