Say hello to my sister. If anyone needed luck, this woman did. Crappy marriage, heart surgery, etc.
Last month she was bawling on my couch. "My life is sooooo hard."
So, what happens? Did she take my advice and 'Change it'? Yes she did. She got a line on a new job and went for it.
Okay, technically I had to send in the resume, after I dug it up from my hard drive and revised it. (Remember, she's the cute one.) Believe it or not, she is a welding inspector. I know, you would never guess by looking at her.
One day, years ago, down at the steel plant, the rumor was that if you were a woman, you would get a job. No matter what, they had to fill a quota. (Tree huggers are good for something.) Any who, TBS taught her how to weld, I found a guy that could teach her to drive a forklift and she applied.
She went from being a hair dresser to a welder, an unlikely segue, I know, but she just took right to it. She went on to take courses to become an inspector.
So, fast forward to today. She landed a job making ridiculous money in the next province. I won't say how much, but she makes in just one day what I make in two weeks.
I guess you never know what you are going to be good at, you just have to give it a shot.
Nothing to lose, everything to gain. Told ya so.
