The company retrenched me. Hey, there were so many lazy bums in the company and I wasn't one of them. Why me? Well, I know. It is because I am not in the group of the decision maker. |
I accepted the fate rather gracefully and picked up my emotions. I started looking for jobs immediately. In front of the interviewers, I am confident and know what I want. Yet no one knows I am feeling sad and worried.
A month has passed. I do have a few job offers but there is no news from the company with the ideal job that I went to interview for and hope to get. For the past weeks, it seems like a real test and a real challenge.
It was my discontentment that brought me to this state. I regretted being too greedy and money minded. But, the past is past. I was blessed to have a smooth path in my career. Life is not a bed of roses always. This is a time for me to prove my worth.
I know I am worthy for everything in the world. I won't give up, for I know I will get what I want, even if the company with the ideal job rejected me. I will move on and get what I want. No matter how tough the journey will take, I am determined to continue and fulfill my goals and dreams.
You too, it is a blessing that we are living right now at this moment. With failures, we grow. Somehow, I feel that my life has just started. It is not the destination that matters, it is the journey. Though my journey, for this round, is full of thorns and hindrances, I will definitely enjoy the trip and learn the lessons within.
