Hey Mary, that’s awesome! Congrats on your new job!
Oh, I feel like it’s the best and most prettiest wallpaper ever, lol! I see it every time I look at my phone and it’s a really good reminder to have faith that my 9 or 10 will come. I’ve had some interesting dreams and stuff lately around work that I think is giving me a sign that something good is coming soon. I’m glad your client got her dream position even though it look longer than she probably hoped it would. I’ve definitely been there!
Thank you so much for this, Rachel (and Mary!) I’m in a similar place in regards to the job searching, not finding jobs in my salary range specifically. I was on it for a little while but since then I’ve been busy traveling and focusing on other things. I’ve applied for three, one I got a rejection form and the other two are still pending so there’s still hope! It can be pretty tough for me to avoid feeling like I need to push for what I want. A couple of lab techs have just recently announced that they are quitting our team so I’m also a little jealous that they are moving on so quickly. One was with us for just five months, and she mentioned in her interview that she wanted to keep growing, but her growing came a lot sooner than anticipated, haha! I screen shotted the part about outsourcing my problems to the universe, and made it my wallpaper on my phone so I can have a daily reminder of it. I did the exercise with the list titled “universe is my recruiter” and I definitely felt better after I wrote down the things I wanted. I also found a box that held a bunch of negative things that I’d written a while back when I was feeling down in the dumps, and I burned the sheets that had the nasty stuff on them, to help release them. So Mary, I wish for the best for you, and for me too! 🙂
Yeah, putting it down and sticking to it is a great idea! It’s so easy for all those other things to creep up on you and then you realize it’s the end of the day, weekend, whatever, and you haven’t done the thing you wanted to do. I really hope that making time for yourself leads you to just continue making more time for yourself. 🙂
Yes, it’s great to redo my resume when I find jobs that I’m actually interested in. I had fun redoing my resume. Fun! Working on a resume! It was eye opening and such a different experience from when I’ve done my resume before. The whole experience really reset my thoughts about how I should feel when I apply to jobs. If it doesn’t feel that way, it isn’t right. 🙂
Hey Erin! I’ve not been applying for a ton of jobs either. I continued with individual coaching with Rachel and it’s helped me keep up my momentum. I had a few weeks of not job hunting and I felt discouraged because I wasn’t finding a 9 or 10 job right away. Now I’ve found a couple of jobs that I actually have the motivation to redo my resume for them, haha. I’m glad you didn’t take the job that would have resulted in a massive pay cut because you would have been stuck in a similar situation. About your painting, can you schedule time to paint on your calendar and devote yourself just to the painting for that time? I find that scheduling things like that helps me.
