Worth Celebrating

This morning was horrible. I woke up late, missing boot camp. Once I got to the gym, it was filled with housewives, all hijacking my machines.

With the rain coming down, I headed home and settled into the office. The phone rang about 9:30 a.m. I took a deep breath while walking toward it, knowing it could be "the call."

Sure enough. It was. I'd negotiated last week and was waiting on their reply ... and it came. Exactly the price and time I was wanting.

Starting on September 1, I will start a one-year contract with BP Decatur Works creating their external and internal communications and community outreach plans. Can I get a whoop whoop! When I read the job requirements back in mid-July, it was as if every step I'd ever taken led me to the position. Television, writing, creativity, design, public speaking, working with non-profits, educational outreach, and much more. From job fairs to Decatur Chamber events, I'll get to tell the story of BP's Chemical Division. Best of all, the time frame allows me to create and implement while stepping out next August 31.

I am looking forward to so much about this contract. I've really enjoyed my time at home and beginning the foundation for Sassy Pants. This will allow me to continue to grow my contacts and enhance my skills. I've learned so much about myself, the people in my life, and grown my faith exponentially. Faith in self, God, and patience. In addition, my mom is awfully proud of me! :)

There is of course more news to tell. But that will come in due time.

Until then, Bottoms Up! Here's a toast to me.
