Some of you know, earlier this year, I started working for a different company but rejoined my old company after a few months. I was sincerely very excited for the new opportunity. I was drained and had come to my wits end with the owner of the screen printing company. The owner for the jewelry company had read the same books I had like The Power of Now and The Secret, so I really felt that we would be on the same page as far as thinking was concerned. Boy, was I wrong. I understand, working from the bottom and proving yourself when you start a new place of employment is important but I wasn't ready for the ride I was supposed to take. Granted, it was a small company and I understand the dynamics would be a little different. By the end of month two, I was ready to head out of that situation as well. The owner did read these books but I don't think he really applied the concepts especially after I read a Facebook post basically him exclaiming that the "haters can keep hating". Not to mention, the person in accounting was very critical and negative of everyone accept her and her daughter, who also worked there.
After finishing my 90 days, I came back to the screen printing company to run some reports as a favor. Later on that day, the VP offered me a position in a different department in the company. I was kind of torn on making a decision but the pay was better and I had sincerely missed the office environment. I accepted the offer and I have been so happy ever since. This environment suits me so much better as there is genuine goodness and laughter with those around me.
I know that sometimes we have to take opportunities given to us to grow but when those don't work out, I know deep down in my heart that another door will be opening near by where you least expect it.
