IF ONE DOOR CLOSES...WHAT'S BEHIND DOOR # 2?

Lately, I've been trying not to get to worked up about the job market and where I fit in it. I should expect that people will ask me about the QVC thing for awhile. "How did it go...when will you hear something?" The problem is...so if that door closes...when the next door going to open and what's behind it?

I think I started to freak out a little when I saw something that made it look like they were only hiring for one position. I just started to get a little down...like really what are the odds? I know I did so much better than a lot of people and I did better than I even expected but still...it's like a nationwide search. I know it's really too soon to know what's going to happen but I can't help but feel a little impatient and scared.

So what's the next opportunity? Is it going to be just as big? So just say I don't get the QVC job. I'm obviously continuing to look for other opportunities. Here's the worry wort in me...what if the next door that God opens for me is a much smaller job? Smaller than the one I have currently. People always say tthat when when God closes one door another will open and the usually it's better than you can even imagine. But what if it's not?

It's hard for me to think that I could've had the best job of my life to one where I'm taking 5 steps backwards. People say that God has a plan for you and you don't know what it is. What's my plan? What direction will it take next and if I don't get the prize behind door number 1...will I like what's behind door number 2?

I can totally relate. I'm the queen of 'what if'. I hope this blog provides some sort of release for you. I've had sleepless nights worrying over things that eventually worked out. It sounds like you really want this job and I'm sure that you reflected that in your audition. I'd bet money that you're, at the very least, short listed.

Erin, I have the perfect opportunity for you, why don't you try out to be on the next episode of the Bachelor? You would be a great contestant and fit the profile of the contestants to to a tee.

Ummm if that's a joke...I don't think it's funny.

Why would I make a good contestant...and fit the profile to a tee?

Hmmm.....I like how he used the word "contestant"....like some other wonderful guy we know!!

Erin, I am dead serious and it was not meant to be funny. You strike me as the kind of woman who craves for attention, recognition and fast love. You have that bubbly personality and the basic looks of the woman who seem to be participants on The Bachelor. You would make a great participant, get a lot of attention from the camera and get alone time with the bachelor.

Dear Scott,

I do appreciate attention, and recognition...but fast love...no thanks.

If there is a guy that I think is coming on strong too fast...it freaks me out!
