Time for a Fresh Start

Your Chinese Horoscope – This Week

Even if you prefer to know what will happen next, this week can be very unpredictable. This unsettled energy is full of exciting possibilities. It’s an especially positive time to set challenging goals for the future. Make a list of the things you would like to accomplish. Post this list, have confidence in it, and see what happens. Challenging circumstances have nothing to do with the ultimate outcome. The celestial energy is fortunate for friendship and group projects.

 

I don’t put a ton of stock in the frilly free online horoscopes out there, but every once in a while they come up with a good reminder or a piece of timeless advice.

 

I’m back on the job hunt again, and this time I’m definitely NOT going to do media again. I just can’t take it any longer.

A talk with my bff last night helped put things in perspective – eternally optimistic, she was happy that my job was coming to an end “because it makes you so unhappy all the time!” and thinks that this could be the start of something fresh for me.

I think she might be right. I think I’m ready to let go of the stupid media world, the politics, exhaustion and thankless tasks. I have so much more skill and talent in other areas. Everyone I speak to (including my boss who is letting me go) tells me that I should find something to do that involves writing, hosting, presenting, being involved; that kind of stuff. They are my true strengths and where most of my interest lies. I love people, and I love words, yet I’ve been neglecting those two areas as a career path for the past 5 years.

The past few weeks have been quite unsettled and unpredictable, indeed. Some things (blogging, Airbnb hosting, gathering with friends, etc.) have been going well, but other things have been going quite poorly (health of loved ones, job situation, physical exhaustion). I feel lost and floating quite a bit these days. I need to get my bearings.

“Make a list of the things you would like to accomplish. Post this list, have confidence in it, and see what happens. Challenging circumstances have nothing to do with the ultimate outcome.”

No matter where this advice comes from, I think it came to me at the right time. I really need to sit down and figure out my goals in life rather than picking a direction at random and charging full steam ahead.

Keep your eyes peeled for changes, readers. They are a-comin’.

 

 

PS. Is anyone in Toronto hiring??

  1. Good for you, Ginger!!! I'm currently working through a recruiter right now and although it's not very fast, it's SOMETHING. I think you would do very well in a job that has you interact with a lot of people … if you like travel, maybe a presenter that goes around to different high schools/companies/etc? I have NO idea where you'd get hired to do something like that though.

  2. I think you have a great attitude about this – a fresh start is exactly the way to approach this challenge. Best of luck and looking forward to reading about where you end up! I agree with Money Rabbit's comment…hmm…university/college recruiter perhaps? You're lucky you have skills that can work well in so many different areas.
