Ok, I have butterflies in my tummy!🦋👱♀️
I have a job interview in a few hours and I’m psyching myself up and putting on my big girl shoes. The job is for a position as a Transgender Advocate at a large medical facility and it involves helping trans people negotiate the health care system and some of the other hurdles we face on a daily basis.
I’m usually really good at interviews and actually I participated in the hiring process for new cops when I was a police sergeant.
But that’s the twist! I lived in a different world (Policing👮🏼♀️) for 23 years and this is a major shift for me….but this position is literally “my calling” and there aren’t many opportunities out there like this.
So, I ask myself what is it that gives us strength at times like this and I came to a conclusion. Its about using the life experience we’ve banked over the years and remembering all the adversity we faced (and overcame) during our lives.
We don’t “Win em all” and I’m a believer in the old adage that if its meant to be…then it will happen. My hands are steady and there’s a glint in my eye.
Here I come…..Oohrah!👱♀️🏳️🌈✊
