The last couple of days have not been great. The job search is taking time and at this stage I seem to get more rejections than anything else. Seems in the current economy all companies prefer young, low cost resources…! There was a role I was really keen on, got all the way to the end, which should’ve been the “seal the deal” step and then I got a call yesterday to say they’ve decided to not go ahead with that role, but rather split it in two and get two junior resources…I was gutted. My dad sent me a nice quote, which helped. It said “Sometimes life takes you into a dark place where you feel it’s impossible to breathe. You think you’ve been buried, but don’t give up, because if truth be told, you’ve actually been planted” – Karen Gibbs.
That made me think and it is so true what The_VacillatingPath said in a comment on my last post…if something is not meant for you in life, no matter how much you demand it from the Universe, it is not going to happen. So what do we do in these situations…we accept that what we really wanted was not meant for us and that what we need, is just around the corner. In time, we’ll come to understand why that particular thing was not meant to be. So chin up and carry on, believing that what you are seeking is also seeking you.
This has not been the greatest year, work was awful, I felt like I had no choice but to resign and seek something more satisfying. The search has not been as easy as I anticipated. But at the same time, it has given me some much needed quality time with my little one. Something I would not have had, if I had stayed where I was. Sometimes, no matter how scary, we just have to take that leap of faith and believe that everything will work out like its meant to, whatever that may be.
I’ve taken a bit of break on my experiments. Experiment 7 started, but with everything else going on it kind of got forgotten. I’ll attempt it again soon. I am also doing research to look for other books on Quantum Physics and the Law of Attraction.
What this year has taught me so far is that things do not also work out how you want them to work out. Sometimes life has to give you a nudge and force you off the path you were on, as that is the not path meant for you. For a while you have to roll with the punches and get to your destination. Or start to grow and get out of the dark soil, as per the quote mentioned earlier.
