The discussion at my house has been about whether I should apply for a well-paying, full-time job or keep my part-time job and full-time school schedule. The catch is that I have been trying to get out of my current line of work as a nurse aide and move on to something more creative. I’m also hoping to have a job that is less physically demanding. Someone pointed out this piece of advice to me today: “Pay attention to delays, wrong turns, etc. Every situation that seems like it may be pulling you off course, may actually be your higher self putting you in the right place at the right time.”
It has made me wonder if I have been in the right profession all along. This is my second or third attempt to switch careers. For whatever reason, I remained a nurse aide. If I keep doing creative things on the side, will it be satisfying enough?
So the only thing to do is apply for the well-paying job and see where things go from there. Unless anyone else has words of wisdom.
You don’t seem thrilled about the new nursing opportunity. 🙁 good luck in whatever you choose. Hopefully the choices you make will bring you towards personal satisfaction and happiness!
I know….. I’m trying to be positive. Who knows, I might not even get the job.
I have been looking for that “creative position” for years . I have switched careers COMPLETELY 4 times , successful but still unfulfilled. Follow your heart and good luck Holley !
You are quite welcome!
Being new to your blog, I’m not up on what type of creative position you are looking for, and as a creative type I can tell you, it’s hard to find a creative venture that will pay what you need. I do my writing which pays little around the job that pays a little more … and I’ve made it worth.
I can tell you this, my Dad recently had a stint put in his heart, and it was the nurses aid that made sure he was comfortable, and fed, and made all of us feel better … there is a lot of honor in it, and it should pay more than it does.
My major is interactive media. So basically graphic design. 🙂
Thanks for being encouraging. 🙂
