Living as is…
I am a regular reader of these stories for over a year now, stopping by for inspiration, positivity, and ideas. So now I am super excited and feel privileged to be able to share with you all my own inspirational story…
Just recently I got offered a job at a huge company – more money, more prestige, and what I thought would be a welcome change from the boredom the job I had been doing for the past 10 years was giving me. I was excited, proud of myself, and couldn’t wait to begin. But when I started I realised that this new job was not for me. I was miserable, I got sick, and felt really trapped. During the second week I came across another job working for one of the local councils – only part time – closer to home and that was more my style. I decided to apply. Scared to leave this job so suddenly I was still unsure how my decision would go down with my family in particular.
So I started to act as if… as if I already had this new job. I emailed myself a letter offering me the position, I wrote the starting date in my diary, I visualised working there. As if I got accepted to complete my post-grad degree whilst undertaking this new part time position, I wrote dates in my diary of start dates and assignments due, I visualised myself completing work, and reading, and talking to people about what I was studying.
As if my family (especially my mum) were fully supportive of my decision, I visualised telling my mum and my family about my plans, them being super supportive of me, comforting me, telling me to do what would make me happy.
And guess what? I got the job and started three weeks from the date the application was due!!!! And I got accepted to do my PostGrad Degree!!!! I am so happy and grateful for the LOA for all it has taught me. All my friends and family are happy and supportive.
I am so grateful for all the happiness and joy in my life. xxxxx
