It happened suddenly and all at once.  Last Thursday I was willing my legs to get out of the car and into the restaurant.  Begging my anxiety to stay low and praying I could get through the day.  And my phone rang.  Right there in the parking lot.  And it was the staffing agency I applied to that helped me get a few extra hours here and there.  And they wanted me to work in their office filing paperwork and I trained that afternoon.  I worked at the restaurant both Thursday and Friday and in the afternoons of those days I trained and filed applications.  I had my first full day yesterday and quit work at the restaurant.  And went back for a great day again today.  NO ANXIETY. No yelling guests or angry upset bosses who want to cut my pay. Just papers.  Papers don’t judge or snap at me.  I file them quietly at my computer and it’s good.  Just like that. My prayers about finding a new job were answered.  And I still get my vacation in July.  And I still get to see Ryan and Tucker.  And I make more money doing something helpful and at a good pace and stress level.  No screaming toddlers no quotas, no phone calls or angry guests.  I’m so excited.

I'm 26. Lost and in transition. I don't have the answers, just thoughts.

    Congrats! That’s really great. Did the staffing agency place you somewhere or are you working AT the staffing agency?
