I’ve been trying to keep track of my mood this month (as a small mental health challenge for mental health awareness–another post to come on that), and I thought my mood was okay this morning, but it went downhill after lunch for some reason and I’m thinking that I’ll re-grade it as a 2 instead of a 4.
This card almost seemed to jump out of the deck at me this evening as I was thinking of what the motivation for the week should be. “Anything is possible”. This is a reminder that I needed tonight, that I need to keep working towards my goals of finding an industry position and getting back into shape.
We really can accomplish almost anything (though I doubt that we’ll be living on Mars any time soon though), if we just believe that we can. Right now it isn’t so much that I don’t believe in myself (because I do)–I’m just worried that I’m going to make another mistake. It’s amazing how a wrong decision can haunt you for quite awhile–the decision in question was that I shouldn’t have jumped at the first job offer after graduate school. It seemed a little off, but I shook it off to basically my first real interview and nerves. But now looking back, I should have listened to my gut and taken the risk of being unemployed for awhile as I looked for a position–who knows that might have made me consider industry even sooner than what things did.
What is going to be possible for me this year?? A new job in industry (sector/company/position–all still in the air), I will start networking more on-line and add value to where I can get to an informational interview. I will move (possibly to a new city), and I will continue to get my nutrition and fitness back on track to where I’m getting into the best shape of my life.
Baby steps (or crawls) are needed before racing–as long as I’m moving in the correct direction, slow works–I can build up the steam shortly (but I don’t want to push so fast that I burn myself out.
