Things have suddenly fallen into place. After months of feeling a bit lost and confused, I've been given a break. My new job starts on Tuesday, and more than anything I'm excited to feel productive again. For me, I operate best when I have purpose in my days. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy spontaneity and change, but in the end I am a creature of routine.
There's always a lesson to be learned, especially in the darkest of times. My four month job search has taught me the importance of patience, compassion, and faith. I've been able to observe and discover the relationship between struggle and empathy. I've become overly sensitive to what others are experiencing and feeling. It's a connection that's strong and genuine.
Things do have a strange way of working out!
