I can feel it, coming in the air tonight… oh lord…
I’m ready to take back my life, by storm. The pieces of my life that were left scattered about? I’m picking them up, dusting them off, and putting them back together to create a new chapter for myself. No more running to avoid my own weaknesses, or hiding behind excuses for my vulnerabilities. It’s time for me to step it up, and take back the life I had.
I have a firm foothold in Squaremouth, to start in a few weeks. I’m really excited about it, but I’m also nervous. I’ve come to realize that a smaller company means a smaller everything- smaller chance for promotion, smaller benefits, smaller pay, and a larger chance of failure. These doubts are alarming, but I know that I can make it. But I’m not going to settle, either. I’m going to keep pushing, and shoot for bigger and bolder. I’ve talked to some of my allies and friends back at Bank of America. I’m hoping they can help get me the attention I need on my applications to work at the Bank again. Four of the major departments are all hiring, and all of them are looking to start a new class in August. My first job with the Bank has a class as early as Aug 3rd. I am prepared to get back on the phones. I know what it takes, I am familiar with the industry, and I know the policies. I can make this work for me. I would also make my old pay rate again- something I haven’t had in a long time now. It’s been nearly 4 years since I left the Bank, and I’m ready to return.
I’m taking back my career, looking forward to a fresh start with a familiar setting. I’m ready to do things right, and do right by others. I’m tired of being in a thankless, rewardless job, where people’s bitchiness can determine if I make enough money to get groceries or not. I’m ready to put my skills and strengths to good use, and to get back to a place where I’m humbled and inspired by others. I miss the feeling of aspiring to greatness, and the hunger that comes with wanting to climb the ladder.
I’m in a great living situation, where I have a lot more control and flexibility. I am in a good place with my family, I have a fantastic, reliable car that I love driving, and I’m in the best shape of my life. It’s time.
