The other day, I was contacted by a recruiter for a job opportunity as an IT Project Manager / Business Analyst at Sherwood Lumber in Melville, NY, (about 10 minutes from my house). Could this prospect be the vehicle to give me what I want?
- A transition platform from my current employer as a consultant on my existing projects
- Continued work that would be less taxing
- More quality time for myself
- Closer to home and nature
- No NYC ugliness
- More writing and self-purpose activities
We went back and forth with revised and re-written resumes. I was feeling pretty good about this!
The next day, as it turned out, they took a pass on me, said the recruiter in his follow up email. “We did our best” he consoled. I kept telling myself, it wasn’t meant to be, something better was in store … but I was still disappointed – not big time – just a bit bummed.
I began thinking, maybe I was looking for “rescue” from my current gig in this opportunity – not the best arrangement. A few hours later, I went for a walk; I stopped alongside a building in the bright sun, so warm and comforting. I looked down and saw a small feather, probably a pigeon’s. To my right was a penny on the ground. How remarkable! Two signs that angels are around me. With my spirits lifted, I headed back to the office. This was going to be a good day after all!
