WEEK 15 - JOB

We are back for another week of the Gratitude Journey. Each week is a different topic to reflect on and make us more grateful.

THIS WEEK: My Job


I have had a lot of jobs. My resume looks insane because we have moved so much with my husbands' job in baseball. I love my job as a personal trainer but it's not the job that I am most grateful. 

It's my short time with the Phoenix Coyotes. Gary got a job with Arizona State Athletics and while we were driving to AZ from OKC my future boss from the Coyotes called to set up an interview. He wanted to do an interview while we were driving, so I asked him if I could do it Monday because I'll be in Arizona. I could tell he was a little put off then filled him in about ASU. 

I went in and interviewed they called later in the day. I was so pumped to continue working in sports. I will be honest I am not huge hockey fan and didn't even know our "star" player. I was also slightly unaware about the lockout and ownership situation. But I have read Ice to Eskimos so I was overly confident. 

But this experience was probably the worst experience I have ever had working in sports. I won't go into a lot of details, but I was miserable. I am grateful for the situation because I learned how NOT to treat people. I learned that sometimes people are just grumpy and miserable people, and there is nothing you can do. 

I do miss working in sports. I hope maybe one day to get back into it. 

What is a job you are grateful for?
