The Gift That Continues To Give.
Last year after graduating school, I was in a rush to find a decent job in my career field. I am a veterinary technician, and my passion is horses. So naturally, I was looking at any equine veterinary facilities that were hiring. I found a few although had no luck on being hired. Despite a couple of rejections, I kept my head held high and visualized myself working my dream job. The Universe answered my call when an employer reached out to me as she came across my resume online. The clinic was strictly small animal, which was something I didn’t want to do. However, a job is a job. I responded and we set up an interview date.
When the Universe puts me on the right path, it shows me signs. The signs I will recognize immediately. I came in for my interview and was directed to the waiting area. There, a man was waiting with a Boston Terrier. Not only was the dog extremely friendly, it jumped into my lap the moment I sat down. This stuck out to me in particular because I used to have a Boston Terrier myself. This of course heightened my mood, and the following interview went smoothly. As I was leaving, the local adoption center had set up a display with adoptable kittens in cages. Naturally I go to look, and the first one I noticed was a kitten that looked exactly like a cat that I used to have. It was then when I knew that the Universe had put me in this path. A week later I was hired.
I’m content with my job. I have a decent pay, I get along with everyone there, and I’m gaining more experience under my belt. There are downsides though, my commute is an hour 15 to an hour 30 depending on the day, I often get stuck in morning or evening traffic, and because of this I’ve only elected to work part time to avoid putting excessive wear and tear on my car as well as spending too much on gas. On top of that, I’ve been working 3 months shy of a year there and I’m terribly bored because of how repetitive the daily routine gets. But knowing LOA, I focus on the positives and rarely acknowledge the negatives.
One day I was casually browsing indeed.com, not expecting to find anything. I then came across an ad for an equine veterinary assistant/technician. What’s more it is for a clinic that is under an hour from where I live. I immediately sent my resume and patiently waited, my mind abuzz with positivity and excitement. I got a response a few hours later and I was able to set up a “ride along” interview for the following week.
The day of the interview is also a special date for me. It was also the 5 year anniversary of me receiving my first horse. When I woke up that morning and checked Facebook, the first thing that popped up on my feed was a picture of my horse. I took that as a good sign and headed to the clinic with a good mood and good thoughts. Upon walking inside, the receptionist there was on the phone speaking to a client about a horse who shared a name with my best friend’s horse, whom I used to ride all the time before I got a horse of my own. Another sign.
I met the first of two veterinarians who I’d potentially be working under. I accompanied her to a farm call while she explained my duties and what to expect on a daily basis. She is a vet who specializes in equine reproduction, so most of the clients would be breeding farms. This got me extremely excited as I have had an interest in equine breeding and reproduction for a while. We arrived at the farm and I stepped out to hear the radio playing somewhere within it. The next song that started was a song I knew very well and loved!
Overall the interview went smoothly and I felt good about it on my way home. It’s been almost a week. Since then I’ve held my head up high and I visualize myself working there every day I wake up. The Universe is delivering!
