Motivation when I need it.


Tuesday, August 27, 2013

So yesterday, I was told I didn't get the job, my dream job and I was faced with how much I dislike the position I currently hold, with nothing in the future to hope for. I didn't eat my sadness. Instead, I listed out the benefits of my current job. I went to bed, thinking that this is a chance for me to focus on my personal health journey. My current schedule allows me to work out, everyday. I get to eat lunch at home, where I control the menu, and it's not a stressful position, and it gives me health insurance. I need to keep thinking of the positives. Right now, I'm going to put on my walking shoes and enjoy a lunchtime walk.

    Hang in there. You have the right attitude. I think it was Melville who said something like, "The mind has it's own place. It can make a heaven out of hell or a hell out of heaven." You have lots of friends - dedicated Spark friends who will see you through.

    Great attitude!!! Keep looking for positives. Are you positively influencing others at your current job? What else does your current job allow you to do? Is it as stressful as a new job would be?

    I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason. It very well may be that it didn't work out thistime because this is the time to focus on YOU. LOVE your attitude and outlook on the situation, and how you handled it. Feel VERY proud of yourself because you made a terrific choice yesterday!
