I just wrote a person in another blog about how life can change things from day to day. And I feel like expanding on that today. A week ago I was pretty much set on the idea that my present career was pretty much over. Well, not over. But the idea of being freelance was already ingrained in my mind. I would work sporadically, in small places here and there because I figured the big, important ones would not want me anymore. Well, the other day I got a phone call that may change all that. It's from a good agency and the work situation sounds interesting since it will be in a specialized field. I see it as a way of being inside an agency, but not in a regular agency. And I see it as a place where I can end my days as a copywriter. Then again, I am assuming they will offer me a job. There are quite a few unemployed copywriters out there that could be interested in that same position.

But the thing is, suddenly all plans were changed. And maybe a I won't get the call, and all I'm planning now will come to nothing. Believe it or not, I'm finding a kind of beauty in this. I have never been a person who loves unpredictability, but I'm realizing that I better start loving it because that's what life is all about.

I'm the kind of person that loves set schedules and structure and planning ahead for the next 5 years. When I was traveling this past year, my plans changed on numerous occasions though. I was forced to be flexible and just go with the flow. It wasnt easy and it wasnt always comfortable but this experience made me realize and appreciate the freedom and happiness that comes along with just letting go and being flexible.

I think you have a really good attitude towards this potential opportunity and towards life in general. And I hope that this opportunity does work out for you.
