Good news has come my way yesterday with the offer, and acceptance of a new career position as a Code Compliance Inspector with the City I have been working security for. I am very excited for many reason in such that I will have a new direction and career path to travel in. I love to learn new things and this job is right in line with many of the responsibilities I had as a Law Enforcement Officer without the the stress of being locked inside a Maximum Security Prison. The fact that I will be earning a little more money also excites me and will allow us to get even closer to reaching a point of being completely debt free.
But most of all it has returned a confidence within me that I thought I had lost because of my age. One of the reasons for this is the fact that I am just 11 years away from the age where I can start collecting social security. I can imagine that other reasons are many people believe that our minds are not as sharp as they used to me, we are less ambitious and tend to not want to work as hard. I can understand all of these thoughts as I have seen many who fall into this category, but for me I have not changed too much from the way I felt 25 years ago.
I don’t like tooting my own horn, but there are not a lot of folks in their 50’s making much of an attempt to do much at all to work towards even helping themselves when it comes to their own health. I know that most of my readers do not fall into this category, but take a look around you at those of us even just in their 40’s. I have conquered my own health dilemma and do those things each day that make for a stronger, healthier person. I will also do these things in my new career to become the best I can be in my field.
Understanding that this position is only a limited term position and will come to an end on June 30th of 2016, unless it is extended or funding is made available to make this a permanent position I will be striving to accomplish much in the next eight months. I will not only strive to learn everything there is to learn about this position, but also seek out the education I will need to get the certifications I need to move forward in case it does end. I will have to be well prepared to be well qualified to make a move it necessary.
Although I am very excited about the job itself, I am more excited about the opportunity to make a career change as I love to learn new things. OK, enough about the job.
What is going on with my blood sugar? Pasta for dinner last night once again is showing it’s ugly head this morning in my blood test. I ate well yesterday, but went overboard at dinner time last night. As I continue with my workout plan I understand even more now just how important it is to stay in good physical health. I will take pride in representing the City I will be working for as a fine specimen of a healthy and happy individual who is ready to take on the responsibility of of providing communities with the level of comfort they deserve.
