I’ve recently been reading, Girl, Wash Your Face, by Rachel Hollis, and it has by far been one of the most eye-opening books I have read. It is everything you never wanted to admit about yourself but are finding you’re not the only one to go through those situations. There has been one line in the entire book that has stuck with me for the last 48 hours like white on rice, “someone else’s opinion of you is none of your business.” Holy cow I thought my entire life because it was about me that it was my business, I mean why wouldn’t it be if they were judging my life? I’ve thought about it for hours, and she was right, it isn’t my business. I will for the rest of my life have people who agree with me and people who will disagree. People will read this blog and have great things to say, or they will read it and never come back again, both of which are perfectly fine. I didn’t do this blog for anyone but myself, I needed an outlet, and this seemed like the best way for me to get out what I needed to.
Life has been full of possible changes in the last week. I was finally called for an onsite interview for a great company. I am scared out of my mind. Not because the interview is 2.5 hours, not because my commute is going to be an hour longer each way, but because I am finally being forced out of my comfort zone. I have been working for the same company for the last ten years. I am great at my job, I don’t mess up very often, I get great feedback from customers, and I sound full of myself. At my job I am at right now I started from the bottom and worked my way up, I know every part of the business, and I worked very hard to do that. The thoughts of going somewhere new and completely falling on my face is terrifying, and this is the first time that I think I have a chance of really leaving and doing something that could be the rest of my life. After talking to my father today I realized that I have to do it, we all have fears and if I don’t start somewhere, I will stay at a job for the rest of my life that I can’t move up anymore. He told me today he was offered a gig at a huge concert venue today. He doesn’t want to do it. I’m like dad are you freaking kidding me, this is awesome and I can tell everyone that’s my dad! He said the stage was too big and it scared him, and I made him a deal if I leave my comfort zone he has to do the same because we only have one life….. then he yelled YOLO. Dad, I love you, but I’m 27 and don’t even say that haha
