I'm jobless...going on week 4. Am I worried? No. Fretful and overly-emotional? No. Concerned? Yes!
Some of my former colleagues have called offering genuine sentiments of grief-like condolences. I appreciate it; after all, who doesn't need encouragement?
The American Dream
For many, the dream is to have a job, financial stability, house, car, and a few creature comforts. Those things are all important, but now the very top of list for me. My Top A-Lister? Meaning and Purpose.
"Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?"Motivation, Life, and Disbelief
I consider myself to be self-actualized. Still, my chronological age reminds me of the vanity of it all (not to mention other close family members). We worship youth within Western culture. Disagree? Take a peek at the magazine covers at the supermarket checkout line.
Nevertheless, I subscribe to the school of you're only as old as you feel. Well folks, I feel like 25 years young. Hopefully potential employers will also see me as such.
As I continue to walk along this path, I'll post another blog (job search) update on Wednesday. Until then, wish me...
