Funny feeling in my tummy…

So I’m going to do it…  and it’s leaving me queasy.  I’m going to apply for the Directorship of the organization I work for.  After asking for input from friends, family, my significant other and anyone else that would weigh in, it’s clear that I’d be an imbecile if I didn’t apply for this position.  I can always turn it down, right?  If I do get it, there’s nothing that states that I’ve become a slave and have relegated the rest of my life to this position.  I can use it as a means of personal growth, as a means of increasing my stores and helping to propel myself toward that pastoral life that I crave.

At the same time, it’s scary.  Very scary.  I’m stepping outside of my comfort level to purposely take on more stress in my life.  I’m applying for a position that makes me do at least one thing that I’m terrible at: asking for money (aka: fundraising).  I’m nervous, apprehensive and uneasy about this whole process.  But what’s the worst that could happen?

If I get the job, I’ll be forced to challenge myself.  To grow.  To take on new responsibilities.  If I don’t get the job, I’ll continue on with my current work as membership and conference director.

What’s the best that could happen?  If I get the job, I could make more money, expand my skills and qualifications, gain new-found passion for my career.  If I don’t get the job, I’ll continue on with my current work, and only have about 8 weeks of stress per year.  🙂

So I’m going to suck it up and apply.  It’s a win-win situation, even if it’s scary.

Wish me luck.
