To New Beginnings...again!


Remember last January when I announced that I quit Tim Hortons (see the post here), then by October I was back at it again. Well for the third and final time, I'm officially done with working at Tim Hortons. I got another job at my favourite store ever, Indigo!!

When I went back to Tim Hortons in October, it was mainly to help my mom out as I went to the store she manages just to be a worker until I figured out what I wanted. Then I started to resign to the fact that maybe this was it for me, so I decided that maybe I should level up again. So I got promoted to Team Leader (an acting Supervisor). But I just wasn't happy, and it's because of the same reasons as before. The work is very stressful and overwhelming especially for someone with panic disorder. I just knew that I couldn't do this for the rest of my life.

With luck when I started looking, Indigo happened to be hiring. I always wanted to work there, but any time I checked if they were hiring, I always came up short, probably to do with bad timing or whatnot. I also allowed myself to get stuck at Tim Hortons for so many years just because it was more convenient at the time. But when I saw Indigo was hiring, I jumped at the chance. I went through the interview process, but didn't feel confident in how it went. I was sure that I didn't get the job but little did I know I got it!! (One of the most exciting moments in my life!). I'm currently training to work the cash at my location, the job I wanted the most as I felt most comfortable with that to start with. Also because I now work in a book store and I do book reviews on here, I just wanted to reiterate that as always, everything stated on this blog is 100% my own opinion! (I will be adding this to my About Me section of this blog).

These past few months have really been a step up compared to how low and horrible I've felt all year. My medication has stabilized so now I feel more at ease, confident and just normal. It's the most amazing feeling after feeling on edge for the majority of my life. I made a decision to change my life for the better, and it worked out how I hoped. Slowly but surely I'm finally getting my life in order, and it's the most amazing feeling in the world!
