Let’s keep going. For the Lent period, I decided to give up chocolate. For those who now me well will know I’ll fly through this because I carried it on for three years on a previous lent period. But that’s another story. Another thing I’ve decided to do is to not eat out, including take-away deliveries to the house.
I have to admit, the past week I’ve been slacking on my training for the 10k Great Manchester Run. I’ve felt so unmotivated to activate myself into workout mode.
I need to let obstacles be opportunities to fight harder and become stronger. I think there’s always room for improvement. For me it’s about pushing myself further. As gloomy as some weeks can be, I believe there’s always something to be inspired by.
During an awards evening at work this week, one speaker said that it isn’t about finding the right employee but finding the best employer for you. I think there’s so much pressure in this world when it comes to finding a new job. But sometimes we know it’s the right thing we need to do in order to grow and find ourselves.
You’re going somewhere good
I imagine the day I’m in a role where I know that I am onto something. I know I’m on the right track. But I also know there’s something better down that track.
The amount of times people say ‘you need to find something permanent’ becomes quite frustrating. I obviously know that if I want to build a life of my own and move into a new home with my boyfriend. But we both know what we want. It’s about us and nobody else. Finding these things can be difficult but we won’t give up. We are the kind of people who will make do with certain situations.
It can make you feel better when people try to understand that we live in a competitive world. Especially when it comes to the employment journey. No matter what experience you’ve got, you’re not going to be assigned to that new role unless you can show why you stand out.
You’re doing your best in your own time
Just because you’ve only been in a position for a small period of time, does not mean to say that you haven’t had an adequate amount of time to realise how it’s working for you. Likewise, it does not mean to say that you’ve grown any less than someone would have in a year’s time or more.
We should all be able to do things at our own pace, with our own minds and beliefs to guide us along. Here’s to giving it all I’ve got and hopingfor the best in the future. Are you going to work on this ‘keep going’ motivation too?
