Go Confidently in the direction of your dreams….Henry David Thoreau
I read this very simple and lovely quote on the bumper sticker of a car yesterday while driving to a job interview. In some weird way it was exactly what I needed at exactly the right time.
Finding a job that will suit my family life as well as my need for drive, motivation and challenge is proven to become more difficult than I ever could have imagined. I want a job that I love going to work everyday and feel appreciated, values and yes needed. It is amazingly hard to even get a job interview unless you really know someone. Despite having lots of experience on my resume, it is just plain hard.
Last week I had a great interview in which I expect an offer, but it’s not what I really want, but will take it because hey, I need a job. But Tuesday I met with a lady who has an awesome vision and it clicked! It felt right, like I belonged there. I am supposed to get a second interview and hoping that goes well. This one will be with potential coworkers to make sure it’s a good fit for them and me. I can’t say that I will definitely get offered the job because of course no one can, but for the first time in a month I feel hopeful.
This is me going confidently to the direction of my dreams. Not too confident as we all know things can change but confident enough to seek out my true passion with my work as well as my passion at home!
