What a difference a day makes

So Monday I was hopeful and confident that I would get a call/email, be contacted in so way informing me that I would receive an offer for the position I was interview for last week. Tuesday I was "broken up with in a email" as a friend put it. I call it "hate mail".... my sad but seemingly inevitable rejection
"What are you gonna do?" I thought.
Not out of desperation.... but just to say there isn't anything I can do about it. Remember the end of last month when I blogged about Rev Run's Words of Wisdom? Well something he says repeatedly that stuck with me, "Do your best and forget the rest." and also "Let go and let God." I'm not an overly religious person but the idea of what he's saying resonates with me especially under my current circumstances.... In my eyes these sayings are one in the same. Once you've done everything in your power you have to let go of the rest... it's out of your hands! 
I have to say it wasn't all overwhelming confidence though. I did wonder how I could have been so wrong. I thought I nailed it. I'm currently pursuing a BS in Management, I answered all the questions 'right', I had great questions prepared for the interviewerS, I was over-prepared for the interview, I smiled and shook hands, AND even sent my "Thank You" note!! How could I have been so confident about this interview and been so wrong? Whatever it is, it doesn't matter! I'm doing my best (so what if it takes all of my energy and motivation) to maintain a positive attitude and keep moving forward. 

In other news, my Best Friend is just a few weeks shy of her due date! I've spent some time recently picking up a few things for impending bundle of joy... I am excited for her (and me) to have her family grow! 

And yes, I know it's Wednesday and you're all desperate to know what I want... but I'm sorta just not in the mood today. Other than needing to get to the gym, I want for next Tuesday to arrive. "Why is that?" you ask. Well because Next Tuesday will be girls night (he-man-man-haters-club) at my house. NO BOYS ALLOWED! Next Tuesday also marks the DVD/BluRay release of:
Which obviously I WANT!

That was a gteat blog, I look forward to reading your blog every day. A few years ago I had a little saying on my desk that read:
"Dear little one,
I am taking care of things, kindly get out of the way"
Love, God

I love that!
"Let go and let God".
Hope you don't mind but I am going to steal that!
Also, in VA I did interviewing and hiring for my department and I will say don't beat yourself up. Sometimes the job is already "taken" but they are required to go through the motions to make it "seem" fair. And sometimes you can be over-qualified. A company won't want to hire someone for a position if they think that person will be bored in it and try to get promoted too soon. That would leave them with the same opening a couple months down the road. They also don't want under-employment, where you become so bored and unsatisfied by the work that you quit on them. So I am betting there was nothing you could have done differently to change the outcome. Keep your head up!
