Yesterday I had an interview. I thought it went pretty well but I'm not sure. They have several other candidates to interview and "they'll be in touch". This job market is a waiting game. I love to go on interviews because, even if I am not offered the job, it gives me a tremendous opportunity to sharpen my interview skills. One awareness that I had yesterday is that I crave more and more to be my own boss. I was interviewed by a woman who was not much older than me and I sat there thinking to myself:
a. I'm tired of being someone elses assistant all the time
b. If this woman owns a company, why couldn't I?
Every day keeps bringing me tiny pieces of awareness of what I don't want for my life. I may not know right now what it is that God intended for me but at least I can eliminate what doesn't work for me.
On the creative front, I am so excited that I cut my pattern for the Sun Surf Halter Top yesterday and I finished it this morning. It's not perfect but I love it just the same. I can see my sewing style emerging. This is only the second thing I've ever made from a pattern and for the most part, I'm self taught. I am coming to learn that although there is a general pattern to follow, it has to be modified to fit my style. Then I realized that my life is so much like that process; I always seem to seek ways to deviate ever so slightly from the generic pattern. Who knew I would learn another life lesson from a Pfaff sewing machine and a tissue paper pattern?! Go over here to see the finished top!
