Hey, guys! I think it’s about time I write another “The weekly rain drop” post and update you on what’s been going on lately. In my “Moving forward in 2018” post, I mentioned that I was looking for a new job. After that I haven’t written anything for a while because I actually found a great job and was busy working. As of the end of last week I’m unfortunately on the lookout for another job, for reasons I’ll keep to myself. But thinking about employment and life I wanted to brush upon some topics that I feel are very important.
Grab a cup of tea and reminisce with me about life experiences and how they shape us. I always believed that employment is something we need in our life to kind of give us some sort of purpose and stability. In fact, as I am really not a fan of routines, having to go to work every day, is probably the only type of routine I actually enjoy. I like feeling productive and earning good money, because I deserve it. However, no job will ever become my life. I think of employment as a companion throughout our lifetime, and it’s really hard for me to imagine staying at the same job for more than 5 years. Granted, I’ve been officially working for only a year and a half, but regardless of that, I’ve had two jobs in this short period of time. And I’m okay with that. I would stay longer if I could, but I don’t feel lost or depressed for being unemployed at the moment. I feel free to be myself, to find something else that I will enjoy as much as I did this last job. I am so thankful for the experience I had, all the new knowledge I gained and friends I met. I simply look at this as another opportunity to thrive in a different direction.
In case you’re currently going through a hard time finding a new job, please don’t feel disheartened. There will always be something that you can do and enjoy it as well. Maybe it won’t show itself right away, but things always resolve themselves eventually. In the meantime, try to find what makes you happy to fill up the free time you have. Find a hobby that will substitute that void and make you feel fulfilled rather than hollow and empty. Try to be confident and at peace with what you have at the moment, and make the most of what you have. It’s okay to have a bad day, but don’t let that stop you from living your dreams.
I am still planning on opening an online shop hopefully sometime this year, and I am really excited about that. For the time being I will try to write more, now that I have more free time. This weekend I’m going to visit my friend Dee for another mountain adventure and I can’t wait to share some shots with you. Until then, make sure to check out an Instastory or two that will most probably come your way on @elevendrops. Stay tuned and full of positive energy.
