Today is full of uncertainty. I guess that is a good thing. We are supposed to live in the present moment which is always full of uncertainty and excitement, so I suppose I am exactly where I am supposed to be. Yesterday’s part two of the interview process, the negotiation part did not WOW me. It did not scream “this is right” at all. In comparison I would be getting an increase in pay and a decrease in insurance.
Therefore, I am left wanting to stay with my current company, which is ok since I do love it there, it’s just that it has been more than two years since I have gotten a raise. Considering all my expenses have increased due to tax hikes and a bitter cold winter I, not only, want a raise, but I need one. I have never been the type of person to ask people for anything, but today, that changes. I am going to have to knuckle down and go for it. I have taken on a ton of extra responsibilities so either they will agree that I deserve a raise or I will be ending my employment there and moving onto to other things.
It is not an ultimatum, in any way. It is simply that I must be in a place that allows me to take care of myself and my family. Since we are not the “run to the doctor” type people a little less insurance might be OK, it’s a gamble, a risk that’s for sure. I just want to do what is right for me and my family at this point. I guess only time will tell. I will know by the end of the day whether or not I am headed for a new adventure or staying where I am content and at peace.
I believe God will make it right, so I am at his mercy. I am only to sit back and watch the show. Whatever happens, happens. I am ready to be where ever you want me to be, God. I trust you fully. Let the show begin!
