All that glitters… is it real gold?

The job offer finally came out of nowhere.  I got distracted last night with all that they were flashing in front of me.  I wanted to reach out for the pen right that moment when she said she’s going to give me one month worth of salary as signing bonus.  It was too easy to grab the pen and sign.  But I stood my ground and said that I needed to discuss the offer with my husband.

Though the basic pay is just a little over 10% increase of what I’m currently getting, it is still above what I’m getting.  Plus there are other benefits that they’ve put it the basket to make it more interesting….the offer was sweetened.  Too sweet at one point, to be honest.

Good thing there’s excel and a sound thinking husband to help me look at the real score.  Though I still haven’t really made up my mind up til now, I wanted, no NEEDED, to see all the angles surrounding this.

The clincher though, I really like what I’m doing now.  It has been something I’ve always wanted to do, now finally it is here and I’m actually doing it.  But I do sometimes get tired traveling to and fro Makati.  It takes about an hour and a half if you’re lucky where traffic is light.  And I used to hate doing different shifts within the week, only because I have teams to look after.  But in my new role, that shifting thing is of the past.

Hay, I’m still praying about it.  Praying hard about it actually.  Until then, I’ll keep doing what I’m supposed to do and be great at that.  Please pray for me, for wisdom to guide me.

    Not all that glitters is gold. But go for it anyway. It may not be gold but it sure as hell isn’t coal. What have you to lose anyway? If it’s not to your liking, you can always walk away months after.

    You’re right. I realized though that I wasn’t really looking for gold. So I stayed where I am, I’m actually where God wants me to be.
