Joining up with my friends and community over at Five Minute Friday
There is something to having a series of steps to follow.
I am the kind of person who needs to write tasks down to make sure I keep things in order, but I also don’t like being locked into a list.
Usually my routine in a day would revolve around my work schedule, but since I have been out of work for several months that hasn’t been the case.
I have had to create a list of tasks to get done in a day and in turn in the week so that I am productive in my activities rather than just letting time pass in mindless activities.
It has been good that I have been able to attend seminars, work on resumes and visit with friends so I have things to make a routine around.
Joining up (at the last minute) with my community over at Five Minute Friday.
Writing for five minutes on one topic and seeing what it brings to mind. Always a good challenge. Also always intrigues me how so many can write on the same word and have different takes on it.
I’ve been out of work for two months now. Its been a hard time of trusting God has something for me and then doing my part to get things moving.
The act of resume writing has always been exhausting for me. I am not sure if it is my perfectionist leanings or my lack of self-esteem, but it is a long process. I have a hard time expressing how I can fulfill the role requested with my particular skills. Thankfully God directed to me to an Employment Ontario group who have given me a much broader range of skills. I am still tired while doing the writing and organizing but I know that I have resources. I get in my own way sometimes, putting off things because just thinking about what needs to be done overwhelms me. I have missed out on some opportunities as a result. It is easy for me to start the list of berating words that let me know how I actually feel about myself no matter what kind of pulled together front I take with me into interviews. Fear and not alot of belief in myself have definitely been a hinderance on this journey. But this time I see them and I am learning o fight back.
