Square Peg ● Round Hole







All day yesterday, I felt lighter. I felt at ease with anything that would unfold. There was a little excitement in the air while I waited to hear from Brian. I knew, without a doubt, a job that would give him purpose, was on the horizon.

There were several companies that were interested in him. Duh, no doubt. He was the unicorn in a sea of the average. No offense to those who were in his training group. But, let me point out the obvious. He is a catch. So, in the career version of The Bachelorette, I was sure he was going to get picked. I don’t mean to brag, but come on, he would be an asset to any company.

It ended up that one company wanted him to interview at their site yesterday afternoon while the other indicated they would be willing to interview him today. The only problem was that he was overqualified for any jobs that were being offered, and he had to explain why he was even there. He entered the healthcare industry to provide a better future for our family. Benefits. Stability. But now, he wanted a change. He wanted to invest in a different career and apparently, it paid off because they offered him a job. Something that is lucrative and would be a stepping stone for advancement in the company.

Nothing is finalized. They have to get his drug test and background check back before they can proceed with a final, written offer. If the stars continue to align, he will start training on Monday and then after he completes that process, he will be working 2nd shift four days a week. And the other company? Well, he is willing to still sit down with them and see what they have to offer. More will be revealed.

I would be a terrible psychic. Seriously, I never saw his path veering into the manufacturing realm. I am positive that God is simply amused at my constipated thinking. Yes, I am aware that I compared my thinking to the lack of a bowel movement. It was purposeful. I like to believe that I am an open-minded person. But, in this particular situation, I was constricted. While I am thrilled at the prospect of this new endeavor, I am still a little bitter on the timeline. Five months seems a little extreme.

I found out a lot about myself in the past five months. The most obvious being was that I am not patient and am a tad bitchy when change colors my world. But, even with my tremendous impatience, I was able to still focus on implementing my lifestyle initiative along with finishing the rough draft of my book. (That happened yesterday!!)

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Everything is working out in divine order and seriously, God is a whole lot more creative that I am.
