Shaking my confidence daily.

Tomorrow and Tuesday I have very important parts to an interview process for an internal job at my company. It’s a job I’ve done quite competently at two other companies, but I’m shaking in my shoes. Why? I know I’ve been successful in this role before, but it’s been awhile. And since I last did this role, I’ve been hit with toxins, radiation, and a lot of stress. But I’m determined that cancer won’t get the last word.

So this afternoon, I’m applying myself to studying and brushing up on the latest schools of thought about this role, about how this company implements it, and about how it might have changed in the last 3 years. I won’t spend a lot of time on this post, because I might be procrastinating, ha! I just have to get my nerves under control and my confidence soaring. Still, I’m humble enough to know that there is a lot I don’t know. That’s why I’m studying. I want to at least come away from the interviews knowing I’ve done my best. I want them to see that and see me in a new light, even if they don’t choose me this time.

While I go back to studying, I leave you with this little tune that inspired the title of my post. Fun fact – my ex-wife’s friends sang this to her at our wedding, because her middle name is Cecilia.

Wish me luck, and enjoy the music. I miss bands like Simon & Garfunkel. They were part of the soundtrack of my youth. Peace, Jude
