Decision Making

Making decisions has always been so hard for me.
Well the past couple of weeks have been FULL of decision making.
What I would like to talk about is the decisions about whether or not to get a job or not.
So I was kind of in a rut the last couple of months! I didn't know what I wanted to do. I knew I needed to get a job. I just didn't want to. So I didn't really look around. This past week, I was offered three jobs... I wasn't really ready for that!
First, I had the opportunity to be an Intern for Up With Kids! I did Up With Kids for 13 years. I loved it and I grew so much. It was such a great experience. I was really excited about it, but I got a feeling that I shouldn't do it. I don't know why. I just knew I wasn't supposed to do it right now.
I felt so bad because I was so excited and already went to the first teachers meeting.

Second, that same day I was asked if I wanted to work as the front secretary at a dental office. I was excited because it was different. I also wanted to help my friend out. It was just a temporary position though.
Third, my mother in law asked me to go with her to a job fair for a charter school called APA. It was definitely last minute. I decided to go. My husband said that it wouldn't hurt to go, so I went.  I didn't want to go. His mom picked me up and it ended up not being so bad after all. I actually became really excited about it. I was also very nervous. I didn't realize we would have interviews right then. I was nervous, but I think I did pretty good. After the fair was over, I came back home and was so confused. I didn't know what to do. I had three totally different opportunities that would have a great impact on my life.
So the next morning, I found out that I was offered the job at APA. I was so excited! I felt really good about it :)
I talked with my husband, family, and close friend to help me decide what to do! It was really important because like I said, it would deeply impact my life. Even if this is only temporary until we can start our family.
I prayed and prayed. I fasted. I went to the temple.
I got my answer.
 I had to let the others know that I wouldn't be able to work with them because I got another job offer. That was the hardest part for me.
I felt guilty because I had already said I would help them out.
But I had to do what was best for me and my family.
So I decided to take the offer at APA. The American Preparatory Academy.
I am excited for this new adventure! I am also very nervous!
I start next month!
SO I only have a couple of weeks to play then I need to go to work!
