I never expected
to feel excited for the future in the middle of a pandemic. Selfish as it may be, I'm referring to my
future. Four years ago, I took a risk and accepted a managerial job at my work in Alabama. I wasn't good. I stressed, I made careless mistakes and said the wrong things, and I was let go. Following that was a struggle to get another job in my career field and a move to Texas to get support from family.
Then, just as the pandemic was just becoming an "epidemic," the job offer came. In Florida. And I needed to start in 3 weeks time. So my husband and I hustled and made the move. I'm now thriving at my new position, even working from home and having never met my colleagues in person.
