I think that this year has been good for me. So far. I wish my ‘horoscope’ would remain true lol! But I know one cannot rely on good fortune only, right? Work has been coming steadily and January was an okay month for me. Hopefully, February would bring in more. Hear that deal ole Rabbit?
Then again, I have things to be thankful for. I never asked for it but work seems to come to me. Even those not related to my field. Just last week, I was really surprised to get an offer to teach in a foreign language institute. Wow! I’m hardly an expert in English and I don’t even know a thing about grammar and structure so I’m really in two minds about accepting the offer. It’s a wonderful opportunity to branch out, but a big BUT, I feel like I’m shortchanging my ‘students’ if I grab the offer.
I’m simply not confident in this area and I’m not even going to pretend I’m good at it. If its related to my degree and my work experience I’d give it a go in a shot, or if its something to do with Blogging, social media, internet media etc, yet I would consider, but teaching English, and writing I don’t think I have the guts to go for that, yet.
I’m cautious yes. And I also take pride in the fact, that when I take on something, I have to be ready for it and teaching is a big deal for me. I haven’t tried it, and I’m not about to take the plunge to it yet.
There are times though, that I think, luck might abandon me if I keep rejecting offers like this. I mean, I’m lucky I don’t need to scour job sites like some people I know who scour health care job sites just to get part times. Am I making the right decision not to go for it?
The only thing that makes me feel better is that, hubby told me, just do what I want to do. Go for something that I would be happy with and don’t feel pressured. I hope the right chance would come along still. I remember, I met a fortune teller a few months after I graduated from college and she told me, I’m lucky, job and career wise. I never seem to have to look so hard. It just comes to me.
I hope this luck won’t run out. It’s not that I’m not appreciative, I’m simply choosing the right one to grab.
