Thinking about all of the different blogs I’ve written during my time as a student in the health documentation specialist program, I have noticed a few different themes I seemed to write about. The first is to always be positive and look on the bright side. The second theme I wrote about a lot is the fact that life is always changing and how to handle any change that comes our way.
I find it only fitting and even a little ironic that my last blog post is the result of many new changes I am facing in my life. In my last post I told you all I had finished the program, but that I was going to complete the Success Promise Program that At-Home Professions offers its students. I was very excited to start the program and learn how to better market myself to get the exact job I want.
Well, let’s just say life happened. The moving process has not been a kind one and it has actually been long, tedious and more time consuming with a now-walking one-year-old than I could ever imagine. Secondly, my role in my family’s farm has increased and I now have to make myself more available to assist with that as needed. Couple that with the every day tasks of owning a home, helping my brother with his auctioneer business and chasing after my sweet girl, I tend to run out of time every day.
I began to see a pattern where my job search was not high enough on my priority list and so I sat down and listed the necessary time commitments I have in my life and what tasks I could perhaps restructure or not focus on at the moment. Personally, I felt that At-Home Professions has such a wonderful outline of the Success Promise Program and the key elements to obtaining my dream job that I could use those tools and apply them in my own way.
As a result, I have decided to begin my job search on my own and opt out of the Success Promise Program. It was definitely a difficult decision, but one that I felt was necessary for my time management structure.
This will be my last blog post for At-Home Professions. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a student blogger for this program and I thank you for taking the time to read my thoughts each week. I am so excited for my future and I can’t wait to start working in the health documentation field. Good luck to you all on your studies!
