"Helping kids with cancer.......a cancer survivor's story"  

See you at the Crossroads

Last week, I heard the words I have been wanting to hear for so long.

"I would like to offer you the job."

I said no.

I really, really, really, want a full-time job. However, I really want a full-time job that feels right.

This wasn't that job.

Although it was in PR, and would give me a lot of independence, it just didn't feel right. I considered taking it until I found something else, but ultimately decided not to. 

I have taken a job before that I should not have, despite the red flags, and Adam's insistence that something wasn't right. 

It was really hard not to be able to talk it over with Adam, and get his calm, rational insight. But, I had my mom here, and it was great to talk it over with her. 

All signs pointed to no.

So I said no, because I think there is something greater in store for me. At least I hope. I was at a fork in the road, and I went in another direction. It is uncertain, scary, and overwhelming, but at least it feels right.

I may not have a full-time job yet, but at least I have a great tan.

Hey, work with what you got.
