As I mentioned in my previous post….
After waiting through quarantine and Virginia’s stay-at-home order, I finally got hired for a job I interviewed for in early March. I am a patient rep at an optometry office and let me tell you, it has been quite the learning curve. Being fluent in the language of music is not really an asset when you deal with insurance benefits, paperwork, and appointments all day long. It’s not something I’m endlessly passionate about, but I know this is where God has me right now, so I’m making the best of it. They pay me, so that’s definitely a pro. I also am adjusting fairly well to the work environment and my coworkers. It’s funny going from a male-dominated field to an almost women-exclusive workplace. I definitely miss male coworkers.
I guess the cool part about what I do right now is that I stay so busy the day has started to zoom by as I become more familiar with it. Also, my husband has been able to come and spend my lunch hour with me lately, and it’s a real treat. It won’t always be this way.
What’s kind of broken my heart lately is the nagging feeling of that I’m made for so much more than pushing papers, HIPAA, and scheduling eye exams. I know who I am and I know that God has gifted me greatly. The urge to create music is bubbling up from within.
Tonight, I finally broke.
I texted someone who may become my producer. I don’t know exactly what I’m doing but tonight, I made the first step. I’m going to record something. No turning back.
