My last blog was titled “Glass Half Full” and I am going to try my best to continue with that theme even though things are a little different from then. One thing is for sure in this interim time since I walked out the newsroom door at KWWL I have been tested in many ways. It’s ironic that I just finished an audio book that talked about how God sends us all sorts of tests on this earth and he sees how we react to them.
My last day at KWWL was January 7th and things have greatly changed since then. I won’t go into details as tempting as it is for me to want to. I can only say that I have learned that working someplace you are valued is the most important thing.
Now I am forced to make some tough decisions. Do I want to go back into television? Do I want to try something completely new and different and is now my chance? I wish these answers were clearer.
I am blessed though because my agent is looking for new positions for me all the time. I feel if I want to get back into television news I can do so and quite easily too .
Time will tell whether that is what I want.
When I moved to Iowa I decided I would slow my pace of life down. I wanted to settle a bit, have a family, meet someone, put some roots down. Now could be God’s way of steering me in that direction. It’s just hard for me to decide right now.
My brain and feelings are murky and I wish I could fast forward a few months so I have a better idea of a sense of normalcy.
However it is completely amazing to me the people who have reached out to me. It It honestly seems the job offers just kept coming. It’s so nice to be valued and it’s so nice the people who want me to stay in this community. I am blessed in so many ways.
