Work Woes

This isn't a Fashion related post, but seeing as it's my personal blog I'll do what I want lol.

I haven't been happy with my most recent work environment, it's been quite negative to say the least. I've always been quite blessed when it comes to finding great positions and getting hired and I'm usually the youngest at a company. 

For many reasons, many of the women find my presence to be quite intimidating. Possibly my style, personality or ability to get the job done, I just haven't met the most friendly people. Nasty looks, smart comments some just don't speak at all. Me being who I am, I still came in everyday and gave my best good morning and treated people the way I wanted to be treated, but I was still unhappy.

People say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but I disagree. Your representing yourself, selling yourself to the world and how you carry yourself, shows exactly how you want to feel, be treated and valued. So it's usually easy for me to spot an unhappy person and initially I don't judge I let them show me who they are. 

If I were 35+ and I encountered a younger person in my position, I wouldn't be negative. If my life wasn't where I wanted it to be, I'd push harder. Jealousy is such a ugly trait.

Today was my last day with my current company and in the same breath I was told the news, I was offered another position, that I've always wanted to give a try.

I usually don't share my personal life, but I was thinking and thought I'd let any other fashionable creative soul know; not everyone is going to accept, understand or be happy for God's gift and blessing he has for you, simply, because it wasn't meant for them. 

Nothing will stop me from being me, I'll never dim my light, because it's shining in someone's eyes.

I'll be sure to post a picture of my first day outfit soon.
