A Thousand Angels

Amy Smith – “I had been working in retail for 5 years and knew that it wasn’t what I really wanted to do with my life. Even so I was shocked and upset when my contract came to an end and my employer was unable to offer me a new one.

After unsuccessfully applying for any jobs I could, I finally heard back from the one I had kept my fingers crossed for: My dream job. Now the morning of the first interview was here and my tummy was doing back-flips. I’d done all I could – Got the early night, had my outfit ready and researched the job inside out and backwards but the nerves just wouldn’t budge. I got into the car, took a deep breath and started off.

It was about an hours drive and as a treat my boyfriend had made a new CD for me to listen to on my journey. It was about half way through the drive, going over and over what I was going to say and do when I got there, when the CD stuck in the player, hoping it was just a temporary glitch I let it play. Then I heard what was being sung over and over again, just one sentence. “A thousand angels dance around you.” It gave me the confidence that this was the path I was meant to be on and all my nerves disappeared.

Needless to say the first interview went well, the second went great and I start my new job as soon as possible.”
