Dear WordPress, I Start My First Job Today!

Today marks a HUGE milestone for me: The beginning of my very first job! After years of rejected applications and botched interviews, I didn’t think I’d get hired. But, that’s why God’s good. Just when you think you’ve failed, he opens a door and lifts you up.

I came in two weeks ago, thinking I didn’t get the job. Coming up to the counter, my new boss Ms.Wanda, said she wanted to talk to me. Since it had been two weeks since I had my interview, I was under the impression they had chosen someone else. She said that the reason behind her lack of contact was a surgery and that she wanted me, yes, ME, to come in and train the following week. I was so excited, because I’d never done this before. In spite of my lack of work history, and relative blandness when it came to my resume, I had been hired. Later that night, I went back here. To where I discovered who I was. I read the comments I’ve received, and more importantly, the hope inside of them.

From Sascha: “..So I hope that makes you feel a little less lonely knowing that we are here to hear you…”

From Rosema: “…you are so brave for letting us in your heart, your mind, your soul…” and “…don’t let them define you…”

From Summer: “..doesn’t mean there’s no hope for you. I believe there is hope for everyone 😊

From Tenacity T: “..You are so fucking amazing my friend. Never give up on anything..”

From Patty: “…You are way stronger than you think…”

From Brian: “…Dude, you are so not alone. Don’t let others define your reality…”

From Davy: “…Each step and each poem you write will help…”

From Midwest Fantasy: “…You know yourself. And you know what you want. You can have it…”

From Wallace Peach: “I believe that love will find you. ❤

There were so many more, but I couldn’t contain them all in one post. I realized that the positive energy you’ve given has helped me achieve,  and I couldn’t be more grateful. You all have been an incredible source of hope, inspiration, encouragement, redirection, and, in the best way you could ever be without any face-to-face contact, friendship.

I’ll be working at Mary’s Gourmet Coffee and Donuts on Friday’s from 2pm to 7 or 8pm, and maybe Saturday’s as well. If you’re in the area, don’t be shy and stop by!

  2. Don’t sample too much of the product, you’ll look like a donut very quickly. I meant what I said in my comment you reposted here. Every single person feels alone at times, but we are all here to lift each other up.
