I always knew this year was going to be different. First, I had my doubts due to set back after set back, but I always kept trying to keep my head up and keep focused on what needed to be done. With that said, I just got a phone call back from one of the possible employment opportunities I’ve applied for and I’m totally stoked! It’s been a long road, but after months of studying and applying for employment and applying and studying, something worth mentioning is finally coming out of it. It’s just been such a long and tiring road, of being lost for a long time, not knowing what I wanted to do, not knowing where I wanted to go, always starting something but never seeing anything through… of course this isn’t the end, this isn’t my ‘dream’ career. This is merely a stepping stone to where I want to finally end up, which is of course, still going to grad school.
I’ve always written about trying to stay positive and to look at the brighter side of things; that things happen in your life for a reason, doors close that weren’t meant for you and others open that could possibly be meant for you. I feel that this one moment in time, today, is proof that this is all real – that if you just believe, visualize what you want and be persistent at whatever that is, it will come to be. A couple years back a close friend of mine gave me a book as a gift, titled ‘The Secret’. At first I thought it was all hokey and bull crap, but I decided to read it anyway. I never finished it, though, but one thing that did stick out to me while reading it, was a ‘how to’ get what you want: visualize where/what you want and it will happen; you will unknowingly make it happen for yourself. And it did. I wasn’t conscious of it, but in the end, what I really wanted most came to be. Well I for one am super happy. Start of a brand new month and already the future is looking a tad bit brighter than it did yesterday. 🙂
