Woah. It’s been a while! Ended my 8th week training a little early today for this new job I’m applying for. Finally got to allot time for this little vitamin of mine: writing! Yes, I’m still applying for “the job” as a flight attendant because I’m still uncertain on my status here (anything could happen, depending on the Lord’s will), I can’t really say I’m already employed and an official future jetsetter (lol) unless I graduate and get my “wings” aka my nameplate. Brand new to me cause I have zero knowledge on the Aviation industry. I only see the surface of the ‘works’ each time I’d ride an aircraft, and amuse myself seeing the flight attendants blow the mouth tubes of the life vest as they smile the entire time they’re doing their safety demo. And now that I’m already training to work like them, I’d say that being an FA is a real deal, a dead serious job. I’m serious. 😭🙂
In a span of 8 weeks I’ve done and learned things I never though I could do. I learned how to swim and float in an 8feet pool (my gosh!!!), learned four swimming strokes (freestyle, elementary backstroke, breaststroke and sidestroke; intense ‘to never in my life did I imagine myself learning how to swim), became the class secretary and graciously listen to instructions that I may relay to my classmates (gosh I’m bad at listening, but once again: GRACE changes everything). I also learned how to study hard — oh yes, this is something I never did back in college down to my kindergarten years. My first 4-5weeks at training were such a struggle. There were so many adjustments when it comes to my study habits because I never had one. I wasn’t a fan of school, but now, at 26, I learned to love it! Who wouldn’t love learning how to do CPR, assisting a pregnant woman give birth and do first aid rescue procedures? My favorite were our aircraft tours and emergency drills. I feel like I’m in an acting class when I do the drills. But Lord, please no emergency in real life! Please-eyy!!!
There were also a bunch of practical matters that I learned. 1) To not compare my classmates competence with mine. 2) To be diligent in studying and have the integrity, faith without action is dead! If I’d pray to pass my exams, I shall do my part and study.3) We are a team, my classmates and I, we are a family and I can ask them for help when I need it, and vice verse. I’m no longer in a pageant where competition is crazy. I’m in a team. So yeah, teamwork works!😉
Again, I’m not going to assume that this is already the career the Lord has for me. If you’d ask me now, I’d say that I am beginning to like it. But I haven’t even started doing the actual “service” yet, only Christ’s grace that will fully confirm that this really is it. I’ll find out in a month. Will probably confirm on my next blog.😘
Many are the plans in a man’s heart but it’s the Lord’s purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21 — And I pray for a heart fully surrendered to His’ purpose. I only want a career where I can glorify and honor Him in every way. One that won’t make me forget Him. If this one isn’t it then I don’t mind losing it. But if it is the one, then praise God! We’ll see.
His will be done, my will be gone! Be back in a month! Xoxo
