It is flash back Friday, and I haven’t blogged in awhile, so I felt that this was the perfect time to jump back on the train! There is no time like the present. I was cleaning my apartment the other day and found these old legal pads with tons of notes I had written from years ago.
It was like going back into a time machine. I could see the exact place I was when I was writing these random details of names, places I interviewed, the whole nine. When I found this entry, I was so excited to read it again.
It takes me back to a place in time in my life where I had no idea what I wanted to do. I just went along with what I thought my only option was, to get a 9 to 5 job. There was always this part inside that wondered, is this truly my life calling?
To look at my life now, and my coaching work that I am offering, teaching yoga, and serving others is the best job ever. I wake up every day and I am so excited to be offering the same things that changed my life. It is truly a gift. Entry’s like this make the struggle all worth it.
So if you are at a place in your life you feel overwhelmed or how did I get here, or where is my life going, just relax and breathe because it all works out in the end.
Date: Sometime in the Summer of 2008
I’m at Grand Central Station at the culmination of interview week here in NYC. I have decided that interviewing is like going to the doctors office. You go into a place that you feel nervous about.
You have no idea what they are going to tell you or how your life is going to change whenever you leave. When you finally arrive you have to fill out paper work, often redundant, and go through a list of either people you know or things you have done or think you might have.
Then once you get the paper work done, you still have to sit and wait. The room you wait in so sterile and quiet, you think you are hear people breathing or their heart beating.
Then, finally, praise god, you get taken back to yet, another room. This is where you wait again for someone to come to see you. Finally, the person of authority comes in and they look at your paper work. They glance up and down between you and the paper work and all you try to do is decipher what a complete stranger is thinking about you.
Then post read is a linty of questions that they ask you. They ask the same question 5 different ways to see if you answer differently, then test you for something else that “needed some clarification”. Finally, they send you packing out the door with a head full of questions and possibly a inferiority complex.
And just like waiting to get test results back, so is the wait on the call back of if you got the job. As it stands right now, I have no idea what the future may hold for me, but I do feel that I am on the brink of something incredible. Maybe its just being in this city. Or maybe its just me. Either way, what a ride. I never want to go to the doctor or an interview ever again.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope that it brought some light heartedness to your day. We always shift and change. The only that is constant is change. Might as well let your self have fun and notice the funny life details as you move through it.
