Taking time to reflect on this past school year has lead me to many conclusions. One of which writing really does help me put things into perspective. I am not a negative person. My job makes me a negative person. Something must change. I am working on it. I have to be patient. What I can control in the mean time is something I have been meaning to start and that is daily posts with a theme.
I am starting this school year trying to be more positive than I was last year. I was totally stoked about a new position last school year and there quickly became many factors that were beyond my control that made it less than pleasurable. My job this year is 1/2 what it was last year due to someone new being hired. Hopefully this will help but I have a feeling that some things still need to change. I only hope that I am listened to. I hope that someone understands where I am coming from and changes are made.
I have landed a pretty sweet part time job which I am very excited about. I am hoping this will lead to many new opportunities and only time will tell. Again just gotta be patient. In the meantime sit back with a cup of tea and join me for Thankful Sundays. This will be a time to mentally prepare for the week and hopefully bring peace to anyone who reads it.
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you’ll end up with the stars.”-Wes Brown. This has been one of my favorite quotes since high school. It reminds me of my friend Lynette who was in my English class when I first heard it. She is a very successful lawyer and has never fallen short of any goal she wanted to reach. This quote is very appropriate for a few different reasons at this point in my life. I am trying to make some major changes and I have shot for the moon. If I miss I will still have some pretty amazing things to be proud of and more reasons to be happy. I am trying to remind myself to be patient as I wait for some answers before I can move forward. In the mean time I am shooting for the moon.
What is one thing you are shooting for this week? Anyone out there thinking of starting a new career? What’s stopping you? Are you truly happy with what you are doing now?
