The teddy bear is representing me in this picture. If you didn't figure that out from the super cute glasses he's wearing!
I've been basically working my booty off at finding a new job. It's been a long & hard journey, and I'm 7 1/2 months in - but I keep plugging away. This week I've had more motivation than ever, and I'm hoping that by the end of next month I'll be in a new position where I can jump-start my career and do something that I truly care about!
I want to be passionate about my job, and do something that makes me happy every day. That's really what I want. I don't care if I'm exhausted at the end of the day, or if I have to work long hours. I don't care if I have to drive long distances, or get a little dirty. I want to feel like what I do every day is not just for a paycheck - it's for a better world. It's for a better future. It's for a better me!
And yes, I've been reading some pretty soul-searching books lately too (including The Alchemist for book club). ;)
I will be back soon to give you an update!
Especially on all the camping... just like we're doing again this weekend! Woohoo!
