My new job is lovely…the other staff are lovely… the short walks to and from work are lovely. I am a happy bunny indeed. I am feeling so enthusiastic and energetic and eager about my new job. My old job was draining me.
This morning I have had a feeling that I have not had before work for a very long time. I opened my wardrobe and thought “Ugh! What am I going to wear? I have nothing to wear?”
For the past nineteen months I have had to wear a uniform for work…thus, I never had to decide what to wear. My wardrobe has lots of pretty dresses, most of which I bought from charity shops with the labels still on…
…and lots of clothes to wear while I am working around the house…and when I am determined to be energetic and go hiking or jogging…
But I can’t wear any of these for my new job. I don’t have many in between clothes. I don’t have much that is “business like”. One pair of black trousers and one black pencil skirt.
On Sunday afternoon I went to the local charity shops (there are four within five minutes walk of where I live) and found six smart tops – I paid £20 in total.
When I am confidant that money will be flowing in on a regular basis I think I will have to set aside some of my wages and plan a shopping trip to expand my “business-like” clothing selection.
Until then I have plenty to keep me going. Even more important than the clothes I wear for work are the way I interact with other staff and clients/customers…and being eager to learn their system. And of course, before I even open up my mouth to say something to any of them…what makes the key difference is my SMILE!
