Going out is the new staying in

After a considerable period of “staying in” while I recovered from my broken ankle, I’ve now returned to “going out” once more. Not to bars, but out with my camera and, in the mornings, for a walk as I gradually build back up to running again, so today’s picture felt slightly apt.

I’ve had a stressful few days as I prepared to interview for a job today. It’s a similar role to the one I do already but at a more senior grade. While I already carry out a number of the tasks that it will involve, I will also have to pick up additional responsibilities and new challenges if I am successful. While I know I have the ability to do the jog – indeed I’m very confident I do – I’m less confident of my abilities when it comes to interviews. While I don’t think it went too badly, you never can tell with these things, so I’ve spent a lot of the day re-playing things over in my head, second-guessing what I said, and berating myself for all the times I used the word “we” instead of “I”. I now have to wait for the outcome . Fingers crossed that the things I did well have outshone any where I might have slipped up.
