I had a harsh reality reminder lesson yesterday. I had to take some tests for another employment agency and didn't do as well as I would have liked to. I learned all (or most) of this in all my years of schooling. But, between my time recuperating from my back surgeries and the time spent on other jobs and things where I didn't use what I had learned, I have successfully forgotten where in my brain that I had stored the information I had learned.
Lesson reminder: use it or lose it. Lesson reinforced: I need to spend more time each week re-learning and reinforcing what I have learned. I'm already taking a little time each day typing and practicing my 10 key. I need to step up to the plate and reinvest in myself. This, I believe, will have a two-fold purpose. I will slowly get more confidence in myself and my abilities. I will take this confidence with my in my job search journey.
So, a goal for the new year has presented itself to me. Just as I made time every day to do some type of physical activity, I can make time to invest in my mental health and growth. Onward and upward!
