💕Really loving this quote today🌅
Yesterday I received the news that I didn't get the job I really wanted.🙁
I had thought that the interviews went amazing, and there were multiple indicators that multiple people told me looked really positive, and I got my hopes up.
Like, really really high up.
Like, I put aside my natural cynicism, and was hopeful.
And I didn't get it.🥀
I'm super bummed. I'm angry. And frustrated. And disappointed. But I'm trying my very hardest to take this in stride, and keep believing and hoping that there's something better.
That when a door closes, a window opens.🖼
I keep saying perseverance is something I'm really working on in this chapter of my life... so this just fits right in.
Growth doesn't feel good, or comfortable when you're growing, but when you look back, it's always so worth it.
This past week, I've been relapsing, pushing away recovery, thinking that once I got good news of the job- THEN I could recover.
But enough is enough.
This morning I woke up, even though I didn't want to.
I got out of bed, even though I didn't feel like it.
I ate what I felt like eating, not the lowest calorie option, even though that's what felt comforting.
Did I get out of bed when my alarm went off? No. It took me 2 hours, but I did get up.🙌🏻
Did I put back ingredients I wanted in my breakfast, because it was just too much? Yes, but I also added in other things that I haven't had in months.💪🏻
I'm persevering, not perfecting.
