Okay, Universe...Let's Try This Again

Well, its back to plugging away for my next career opportunity.  It is disappointing to get sooooo close, but not close enough.  I have a few more job interviews yet, so please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.  These are still great opportunities and bring their own strengths.  And there may be some opportunities to come on the horizon.  It is not easy to find full-time employment in this economy.  With my last attempt I was 1 of 10 interviewed out of 1,500 applicants.  They said that they anticipate growth in their department and would like to hold onto my resume.  Slowly getting closer and holding onto hope.  In my heart I feel like I am on a path of where I am supposed to be, and I know I will be fantastic.


  1. You already ARE just takes the right employer to realize it! You are exactly where you are supposed to be and headed in the right direction. Have faith, girl!

  2. Thanks for trusting in me, Diane. Your words remind me of a note that my aunt wrote in a card for me and she said, "But I do believe this--good things will happen for you. Be a believer with me." I am trying to make that switch to have those positive thoughts in the present and not just hopes for the future. It can be difficult when there have been so many no's. I've applied for at least 70 jobs this year and counting. I'm trying to refocus on what opportunities are still in front of me. It also helped to find a few more jobs today. I think what makes this even harder is that I don't feel free of the hurts from my divorce, as this seems like the last big hurdle towards reclaiming my life as my own again. It brings a lot of anger to the surface again.

  3. I feel your pain, quite literally, Jamie. I liken it to our experiences with fertility and adoption woes. The more you want it, and don't get it, the more frustrating and depressing it seems. It's so incredibly hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but God has a plan for you. It will be revealed exactly when the time and job are right. There must have been something wrong for you in those other positions and God is watching out for you (as hard as it is to believe). Again, have faith! I still go back to Garth Brooks lyrics, "Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers. Remember when you're talking to the man upstairs. Just because He doesn't answer, doesn't mean He don't care. Some of God's greatest gifts, are unaswered prayers." XOXO
