From my last post – Self-Love, I’ve also been working on myself. Yes, I’m sure like a few others of you, I have my share of self-help books, business books, and lots of saved links online. But one thing that always brings me BACK to REALITY (lol) is the knowledge that I ALONE manifest these thoughts, actions, and life.
As I stated (last post), that I’ve had some struggles. So I happily sat online (Friday the 13th) of October and listened to some podcasts, looked over some of the many books I have, reopened some of my crazy writings (journals/notebooks) and looked around for my self-help.
After listening to the Marie Forleo podcast (again), I wrote down the following:
I WANT a creative job and life that fits my Simple, Romantic Life!
I realized that I have been enjoying the ‘simple’ job that Dr. B has allowed both myself and my sister (the flexibility, small, a few friendly folks/clients) that has allowed me both an income and the time for me to continue to work on myself, be there for my family when needed and to feel a sense of purpose when I commit myself to the job. It’s a struggle knowing the things that I don’t exactly agree that my sister was/is doing and how she handles things, but I’ve also learned a great deal from watching her and Dr. B through all his own quirks is such an endearing man. I’ll be sad when I DO have to move on, but I also know that I have NOT MANIFESTED the job hunting into a reality because the truth is told, I don’t really want it! I’m not ready to make the change into another job, into one that is too much like my former job at CTI (corporate B.S. with high school like personalities) and a boss whose ego is larger than his heart and mind…
I WANT a job:
That allows me the same flexibility, (obviously part-time), that allows me to be ME (old-school, not so tech savvy, say-it-like-it-is) but above all, that allows me to be creative and allows me times to laugh! Simple!
Right now, I’m LUCKY/fortunate that Dr. B is still working, is still allowing me to be a part of his work life and has taught me new things and has been there for my sister. This has also allowed me to still have a small income, to have the flexibility to be there for my daughter and granddaughter and will hopefully get us through the end of the year?! And my MANIFESTO is to create in my mind and my life the goal to get THAT job that I really want!
Do I know what type of job that is?
NO, but I will continue to strive for it and if I have to manifest it myself, then I shall challenge myself to do so.
What that means is continued writing of what and who I am and my likes and dislikes.
- I love creating props/decor
- I love creating little events or wanting to entertain
- I love looking at beautiful things, seeing the beauty in so many things
- I love to explore
- I’m impulsive
- I’m friendly
- I love to try to make people smile, seeing the good in people
- I am sensitive (my sister finds that a fault) but I know that it is really a strength!
- More to come….
