Can’t sleep again so I’m having cheese on crackers and chai tea as we speak. I think I was just too tired for too long today, and now my body is desperately trying to keep me awake because I insisted on it… oh dear!
Anyway, I had a lovely second shift at work. So far I can honestly say that it’s the best first impression I’ve ever had of a job. I’m loving it so far - the look of the boutique, the customers, the sales girls I work with, the staff wardrobe + staff incentives and the whole brand image! It’s so nice to be encouraged to look pretty, be friendly, attentive and have high-energy at work :)
Today I wore a black lace dress with red lips and heeled black boots, and pinned my hair back with a large fuchsia hair flower. My feet do hurt a little less, but I had so much fun looking at all the beautiful new arrivals and serving the happy customers that it really didn’t bother me so much. I’m super super determined to pass my 3 month trial period so that I can stay! It’s a good sign that so many of the sales girls are weekend casuals, as they can’t bring themselves to leave even after finding full-time work. Can’t wait to see what my next shift will have in store for me :)
I think that being at work has really given me a taste for luxury. I never used to be interested in boutique clothing, but now I realize how much work goes into each piece of clothing - design, choice of fabrics, stitching, beading and embroidery - how all the items are designed to complement each other, and how much care is given to each piece of clothing before it finds its new owner. It’s a beautiful thing to see, and now I’ve also discovered a newfound appreciation for fine jewellery, handbags and shoes. When they’re worn tastefully, it can really complete the outfit and make it look incredible.
I was just thinking about my job, and whether or not its manifestation corresponded well with my thoughts. It occurred to me that subconsciously, I wanted something a little glamorous, playful and fun, and to be in a high-energy environment where I could feel like my best self. I feel like this is exactly the right place for me to be in right now, and that makes me so incredibly happy that I made it happen.
Things I want (and shall manifest!):
- Abraham Hicks books
- goodies from work: a pair of boots or heels + that gorgeous fuchsia hair flower
- a new smartphone
- a new lipstick
- a permanent offer from my current job!
Of course there are many many other things I want as well, but I would already be supremely happy with all the things on this list. Thank you Universe!
