as i have written postings over the past few weeks about work, i have definitely had a specific location, store, and position in mind. after finally making it known to my district manager–and, once again making it known today after her counter-offer–i have made my final ambition known.
it is where i want to be.
it is where i have wanted to be since i first heard of its opening six months ago.
it is where i have wanted to be since i first declared to jena and alisa, “i totally am going here. can’t you just see me here?” a question that elicited no response…none needed.
it is where i have wanted to be since i took my entire family when they were in town for graduation. i wanted to show them my dream.
it is where i have wanted to be–even still–since hearing other great options before me.
and i hope it is where i will eventually be.
continuing to hope…even though i’ve been given the affirmative.
