Here is this week’s version of my “one little word” for 2015. My word is Chance, and I have a whole Pinterest board full of inspiration, which you can see here.
“Run Away” when I hear those words I think of someone who is weak, or scared. “Chase” tends to make me think of “chasing after a boy” which is generally discouraged in dating advice, as men like the hunt. And while that could be its own post, or three or four. Let’s focus on Doubts and Goals.
As I have all these changes coming up I have plenty of goals. Some of them have been goals long before I found out my job was ending. Others are new goals that didn’t seem possible until the possibility of a new job came into view.
My doubts right now center around my job. I need an income. At first I was hopeful that I would find a job in April, and while there is half the month left, I’ve already pushed the goal date to June 1st. Don’t get me wrong, I want a job. But I want the right job. I’m running away from place holders, and chasing after the right position. Something that I love, the daily tasks, the community/coworkers, I need to feel as if I’m working for a reason, and not just for a paycheck.
Chasing my goal right now means applying for everything, keeping my ears open, doing the best I can with what I have and hoping for the right thing to come along. I’m not crazy enough to view jobs as “beneath me” but I can see what is something that is a good fit, or not so good fit for me.
What doubts are you running away from?
What goals are you chasing?
