We always don’t get what we wish for. It might be because it’s not the right time yet or it could be that life wants to teach us a lesson. Then sometimes our wishes get granted. We get what we wished for anyways but it comes with a cost because nothing in life is free.
For a couple of months ago, I was on the job market applying for jobs that are relevant to my educational background and expertise. Though I got quite a number of interviews, I didn’t get a position in the same city. The competition is high in the city because everyone wants to work there. So, I expanded my search and applied for jobs outside the city and county and luckily I got my dream job as a radiographer at a hospital in Sunnfjord kommune (municipality). I got very happy of course but at the same time sad because it means that I won’t be able to see and hug my child 5 days in a week because my new work place is at least 3 hours from home. I have to stay and live by the hospital during weekdays for work. It’s a sacrifice yes, but I’m doing it not only for me but also for the family.
