Overall, this weekend wasn’t too bad. I got some things done around the house. Growing Her Worth officially has a Facebook page, as do I (under Cindy Worth), although I wasn’t able to get the widget to work to post links on this blog. Hopefully I’ll get it all figured out sometime in the near future, and get everything linked up.
Sending out my resume last week got me really thinking: Am I prepared to make a big change in my life? I mean, yes, I’m prepared to take on new challenges, new adventures. But how overwhelming is it going to be to actually make a change? I’m sure most people can relate: You have a list of things you’ll “get to later”. For me, this applies both personally and professionally. All the things around the house that need to be done. The filing and updating at work I keep putting off, because really, it can wait.
I never heard a response about my resume, although they could just be waiting until after the deadline has passed. But that isn’t the point. I’ve been thinking for a while now that at some point, I’m going to need to start looking for a new job. Not that there is anything wrong with my current job. I’d just like something a little more challenging, something more rewarding. Sure, it may not happen for another year or more. I’m not in any rush necessarily to get out. But if someone were to offer me a position tomorrow, am I setup to train someone and walk away? Or am I letting things get so far behind that any transition will be a disastrous one?
The same goes for my personal life. I have a never-ending list of things that I need to get done around the house. What if I did get a job, and needed to move? Or what if the boyfriend and I decided to move in together? I’m not saying that I should be living like I’m about to move, all packed up and ready to go at a moments notice. But, knowing that this isn’t my forever home, I should be a little more prepared for a change.
I’ve been thinking about having a yard sale for what seems like forever. So, this weekend I started going through the house and cleaning out. I didn’t make as much progress as I would have liked, but the bedroom, living room, and kitchen are done. It’s amazing how much stuff you can find that you no longer want/need! And how much more organized the things you actually use can be, when there’s enough space! That leaves the laundry room and utility closet, along with the shed and garage to go. I’m planning for a sale in a couple of weeks, which should be perfect timing.
Basically, I’m using the idea that my life is in transition to motivate me to get more done, both personally and professionally. Getting more done is never a bad thing. Hopefully it will all lead to good things in the future!
