I haven’t been very active on the blog recently and I apologize for that. I have been super busy with… well you know, life.
Next week, I will be starting a new job which I am very excited about! I have been with my current company for about 2 ½ years so it was not easy to say goodbye. However, I am very excited for this new chapter in my life and can’t wait to grow and learn so much more. I will be working at a Plastic Surgery/Skin Care office and will share a lot more details once I start!
Currently, I work at a home health agency as a staffing/payroll coordinator. Which for those of you who haven’t heart of this, I staff caregivers to go out and take care of elderly clients at their homes.
It is a very rewarding job, knowing that you are a part of helping these people feel comfortable during their end stages of life, however, it is also a very depressing job as well. Some of our clients live at home alone. So often times, I will get 50 calls a day from some of these people. At first I was very annoyed, but as the time went on, I started to realize that they just want a friend, they just want someone to talk to. So when you get that call that “John Smith” passed away, it is heartbreaking. You feel like you have lost one of your own family/friends.
It is draining, exhausting, and emotional.
At my new job, you are helping people feel beautiful. I truly believe that everyone is beautiful in their own way, but I also believe that you need to respect that some people do have insecurities, and if they want to change that to make themselves feel even more beautiful, then I say go for it!
I know personally, I hate my nose. My husband and mom and everyone else in my family can say “What are you talking about, your nose is so cute” but no matter how many times I hear it, I will never be satisfied.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I know some people say, this is how God made you, embrace it, and I agree… However, I also believe, God would want you to feel confident with yourself. So if that means getting a procedure to fix something that makes you feel less then, than I truly think God will understand.
Matt and I are trying to pay off as many bills as possible, in hopes that we can soon move into our own place. I spoke about the difficulties with living at my mom’s house in this blog post.
I do feel blessed that my mom allows us to live there, but I can’t wait to decorate our own place and make it our first little home together.
I promise to keep you guys more in the loop, this has just been a crazy last few weeks. but I thought I would share with you all why I have been so MIA.
Thank you for sticking around and for all your sweet messages during my time away.
I did mention on Instagram, that lately I have been feeling a bit down and overwhelmed with everything. I feel like with all the hard work and effort I put into my Instagram and blog, that no one is seeing it. With Instagram’s new algorithm, it makes it nearly impossible to reach new audience, or even the audience you already have for that matter.
But thank you, thank you, thank you to those of you who continue to comment and like my photos which allows me to be seen on your feed.
I truly appreciate each and every one of you for encouraging me to keep going and to not give up.
Thank you for living a day in the Life Of Sawdey!
