I sent off an email to apply for my first job post-graduation.
It is a job that would help to prepare me for the profession I want to take up in the future and would allow me to help kids who are where I was not so many years ago. I’ve been a bit nervous because I really want this. However, I know that hesitating doesn’t propel people forward.
If I’m really the best person for the job, my waiting and missing the first opportunity to work would be a disservice to the people I’m serving, my future employer, and myself. If the worst thing that could happen is that I don’t get the job, not trying would assure the worst case scenario and trying makes better things possibilities.
I’ll take another deep breath and allow myself to hope for the best.
