Life Being Unemployed….(Week 4-5)


Well…..Life goes on…….

The interesting part of being unemployed is the daily, no hourly, changes of emotions that one can go through. You will be relaxed and confident at one point, only to find yourself wondering if everything will be alright? The surprising fact is that there is nothing that causes the change, other than your mind thinking about it. As a coach- it is understood that the ‘game’ is 95% mental- and I am realizing that this translates into all life situations.

This update is going to be short and sweet, as I want to keep ahead in the mental game at this point- and understand that I have a lot to be thankful for right now. While I have not secured my next path to journey, I know that other colleagues have, and I am thankful for that. I have had some great conversations with past colleagues and friends, but I am most thankful for the opportunities that have been given me to interview for positions. I understand that there are plenty of candidates to choose from, and each time I am chosen, I count it as a blessing.

The next few days or weeks should be very interesting as the process continues, and I hope to be able to position myself as the candidate to be chosen. I am thankful that these are positions that interest me and intrigue me to want to pursue this path. I want to be passionate about my role and the positive impact that the product/company can make in the educational field. It is important to have purpose behind your work and your career path. No matter what some may say, I believe that your trust and support behind your work is transparent, and I want others to know that they have a trusted partner with me.

With the Thanksgiving holidays fast approaching, I am extra thankful in my thoughts and feelings as I progress through this phase of unemployment. I still have moments of doubt that creep into my mind, but I understand that these thoughts are not based in reality. They are based in an environment created due to the holidays upcoming, and the joy one is to experience with their families during this time and providing for one’s family. I will not allow my current situation to dampen the uplifting atmosphere of the Christmas Season for me. This has always been my favorite time of year, and one that I hope to have an extra reason to celebrate, and be thankful for.

Thank you to all who have reached out to me personally and taken the time to have a call. Thank you to all who have messaged me privately. Please Like, Share, and Comment as you wish!

I will look to update after Thanksgiving! I wish everyone a family/friends filled Thanksgiving Week/Weekend!
