Changes of ALL Kinds
Life changes. Blog changes. Career changes.
Some of you might have noticed some changes on my blog the past few days and those are the 'blog changes' I am talking about. There were several things that I wanted to change on my blog and Monday and Tuesday they happened. Since I am a designer my blog is always a work in progress, but for now I am happy.
Now on to the 'life' and 'career' changes. For the past ten months I have been at an amazing retail company designing fixtures and stores for their many brands. It was a job that, if asked before I started, I would not have said it was my dream job- but it quickly became one. I loved the people I worked with, the projects I got to be a part of, and I got experience there I will never get any where else.
Last Wednesday I found out that my time at that company was going to be ending. I had been an intern, hoping to become full time, and at that time the company could not hire me full time. Friday was my last day.
To say that I am sad or disappointed would be an understatement. But to say that I am looking forward to the future would also be an understatement. I know that the Lord has a plan that is far greater than I could ever imagine, and that has been my comfort through all of this. There are upsides and downsides to losing my job; i.e. I no longer have to commute 2 1/2 hours each day(up), I already miss my team members(down).
What does the future hold for me?
Good question. And I don't have an exact answer for that.
What I do know is that I start working part time for my dad's company doing architectural work next week. When I'm not at work I will be working on my shop and blog more. I am also working on a new design for my church sanctuary as we are preparing to renovate, so that is on the to do list too.
I'm not sure what my future looks like for me, but that's okay. I am choosing to turn this situation into a positive and use it to my advantage. The Lord has a plan and I pray that I can be open to it and hear him when he speaks.
