Ready for the Next Opportunity

The past 24 hours just sent me through a roller coaster of emotions and the ride isn't over yet.  Jason and I have plans that will allow us to be mobile in the next few years which means I will eventually need to find employment that I can maintain on the road.  Nothing is going to happen for a least a few years so I haven't really started looking for remote employment but yesterday I came across a job posting that made my heart skip a beat.  It is everything I could ever want in an employer and job opportunity.  Since I hadn't been looking, my resume was outdated so I spent all morning updating and reworking my resume.  I looked at the job posting to make sure I had covered everything they would want to know about me, decided it was just right, clicked back over to complete the application process and upload my resume and IT WAS GONE!  Just like that, they had closed the job posting.  I hoped it was a mistake and tried to reload the page half a dozen times but it was indeed gone.

I almost cried. I don't know that I've ever been this excited about a job opportunity and I didn't even get a shot at it.  I searched for contact information for the recruiting coordinator but came up empty. I ended up sending her a message via linked in asking her to allow me to send in my resume even though the posting had closed.  All I can do now is pray that they will accept my resume.  I know I would be an outstanding team member for this company but perhaps the timing just isn't right.

My word for 2017 that I've been trying to focus on is


Maybe this isn't where I'm meant to go.  Maybe now is not the time.  Maybe they won't find the perfect candidate and the job will open again.   Whatever happens, I'm ready for the next opportunity!

3 years

So much has happened since I last spent any time here. SO MUCH.  Maybe eventually I'll catch everyone up but I don't even know where to start so I think it's best if I just jump back in.  I miss sharing my photography and new recipes I try and our travel adventures (that are much more far and few between now) so that's what I'm going to do.
