I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

I believe that the universe is aware of both the concrete goals we actively pursue and the nebulous dreams we have not yet begun to refine. Neither our struggles nor the daydreams that inspire us are beyond the range of universal perception. Yet to manifest our aspirations, we not only need to know what it is we generally wish to achieve; we also need to clearly articulate these aims to ourselves and the universe. A week ago I was one of the 2,500 persons chosen for the Government Temporary Program. The job is for 6 months and it is clerical, paying just a little over $200.00 a week. I have no problem with this job @ all given the economic times we live in, but I can’t help but wonder if this could hurt or help me?

You see here in the Bahamas folks aren’t open-minded in the business world and all the years of accounting experience that I’ve earned wouldn’t mean a thing if I were to put my latest job on my resume. This led me to think that this is where I should be considering my past employment failures. I need job security and working for the Government can provide me with that. My problem is that I am TOO ambitious and I am not one for settling on working @ a place that offers NO chance of advancement. I find it crazy that if a job opens up in the private sector that I would take it if it is offered to me.

They say that the law of attraction is quite simple: LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE and I did that when it came to calling Noel into my life, but for some reason I haven’t been able to focus my energy in this area…AND LORD KNOWS IT ISN’T BECAUSE I HAVEN’T TRIED! On a new job I go with my personal career motto: SEEK TO UNDERSTAND, THEN BE UNDERSTOOD. I NEVER go in thinking that I know it all and trying to show others up, it is just that for some reason folks feel threatened by presence.

But all in all I know my uncertainty about career path is one of many given the economic climate today. And while my concerns are valid, focusing on them can only be counterproductive to my goals…right? Despite knowing that if I release my fears AND affirm that the universe wants me to be successful, having to make a choice like this just makes me feel a bit weary.
