So, I had another crappy day at work today. I screwed up…….because I was going 100mph doing 20 things at once, trying to keep up with my own increased workload as well as that of a coworker who is away. Anyway, I’m not going to bitch about that because I’m totally boring myself by complaining all the time.But, I thought I would pop into Shoppers Drug Mart on my way home to pick up some healthy goodies (CheeCha Puffs and 100 Calorie chocolate covered pretzels).Who should I meet but a former consultant with our firm with whom I have a great relationship! We talked for a little while (OK, I complained. Which is why I’m boring even myself). Finally, I asked him if he would be a reference for me as well. Brilliant, right? He’s perfect! And he agreed.
Funny how life puts the right people in my path when I need them. The trick is to be open to them.
Now I really need to finish the resume. The plan is coming together, which really excites me.
