Onward and Upward – Health and Job edition

I’ve been telling my friends and family that I’m moving forward – and I am.  But, I’m not just doing so in one way.

I’ve hit the gym more often.  I have to admit that I don’t like what I see in the mirror right now.  But, the key phrase there is “right now.”  I know I can change it – and I will.  I just need to be careful that I don’t do it too quickly or carelessly.  I have to do it properly.

To that end, I’m eating more fruit and vegetables, which is something I never thought I’d do five years ago.  I’m also using my George Foreman Grill more often.  It’s a great product and really does reduce the fat and grease when you cook beef and chicken.  I’ve never been a fan of fish.  But, who knows?  I’m eating more things than I used to.  But, for now, just let me put ketchup on it.

Like I said, I’m also hitting the gym more.  I’ve been going to the Gold’s Gym in town.  The staff is friendly and helpful.  I just need to go more often – and not feel so sore afterward (ouch!).

The other thing I’m working on is looking for a job.  As some of you know, I graduated from the University of South Carolina in May with a master in mass communication (Go Gamecocks!), and I have applied to many positions.

I mistakenly thought I’d have a job by now because the job market is better and I thought a master of mass communication would open more doors.

However, I have realized that those doors may be opening in other locations, which is fine.  But, it may require me to move.

I recently got called for an interview in South Florida, which (of course) excited me.  However, they wanted me to come for a face-to-face interview.  Skype was not an option.

This just shows me that, in order to get the job I want, I may have to make significant changes in my life.  I’m willing to make them.  I just need to figure out how that will happen.

However – onward and upward.  I’m continually fine-tuning how I go about reaching my goals.

I refuse to settle.  I refuse to fine-tune my goals just to fit my situation.  To me, that would be quitting.

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m no quitter!

I’m moving onward and upward! Those that wanna join me…hop in. If you wanna just stay status quo, you’re about to be left behind. ‪#‎NoRegrets‬‪#‎NoMoreDramaInMyLife‬
