My Career Literally Knocked At My Door.
I was a mother of three teen girls in a content marriage going to work every day in a rewarding career as a nurses aid. Something was missing however and every day I felt empty and I felt like my spirit was dying. There was politics going on within the hospital and I hated hearing about it. Every day I was starting to feel like I was being dragged into the gossip, even though I chose to not comment. The sun only shone in patient rooms so the darkness was getting to me. I decided to look for other careers that I could do. All I found were ones that needed degrees and I did not have one.
Instead of being defeated, I picked up The Secret and read it again, determined to change my path regardless of the road blocks. I made a vision board and dreamed, asked for and believed in a career with no idea of what it would really look like. But, I knew what I needed to ask for which was full benefits, paid holidays, sick days, a retirement package and the wage I was at or better. Above all, I wanted to feel full each day with a rewarding career not in a facility.
It took two years but my dream job literally knocked at my door. A colleague approached me at work saying her new boyfriend’s work place was looking for staff with medical backgrounds. I asked what the job was but she didn’t know exactly so she said just go for an interview, what do you have to lose? So scared and unsure, I did just that.
They hired me on the spot and said I should take a leave from my current job and see if I liked working with brain injured adults. They offered me all I was looking for and the wage increases were way better than I expected. After two weeks I knew this was my calling and I would not return to the hospital job.
Fast forward 7 years and I am now working in the same agency but now I’m working with at risk youth. Every day I know I make a difference and I am grateful every day. I also left my 21 year marriage and after some lessons with a couple of relationships I am currently in a relationship I feel the Universe delivered as I was asking. Manifesting isn’t just about wanting or needing, it’s about putting your desires into action, feeling the vibrations as if all you wanted was already in place. Some days are challenging staying in this mindset but being grateful, mindful and loving is the key.
