i wished for a raise
while praying for a new job
i got both, now what?!

Ever heard of the saying be careful with what you wish for?! Ha, better believe it because it has hit many times in my life...and damn it always hit me hard.

I mentioned last week that I got a new job. What I did not mention that my resignation was submitted as early as May 4 and has been put to a halt because my current employer is giving me counter offers.

The latest and most tempting was -- Tell me how much and what position and what else you want/need?!

WOW! Where was that when I was with you working my @$$ off too stress?! Tempting but oh well...I guess the prayer should weigh more than the wish, right? Or I'm just playing with semantics here and have really no clue on which is what...

An embarrassment of riches, potentially. Well expressed!

that is a tough situation--although I'd think the old boss may go back to his ways once you agree to stay

Difficult decision only if money was the only reason you were leaving. If there were other reasons, take the new job. Money alone won't make you happy.

Not such a bad problem to have;)

Way to 'ku it.

As Ashlie said, that is a great problem to have! I would gladly take one of your jobs, ha ha.

Dear Mariposa,
I'm not sure if you're considering staying or you've started your new job. Good luck either way!

You gotta be happy in your job regardless of the money. Only you can decide that :)

In my experience ... prayers get answered in the most unexpected ways providing blessings unlooked for ;--)
