Okay, I really don't want to overshadow Sara's tribute but it is my birthday... besides her tribute has pictures... and mine does not. Now, why should anyone right their own self advice? Perhaps after having a bad day and good day all rolled into one, it is possible to feel weak, feeble and confused. So a good tribute and self advice seems to be in order. Perhaps I am going to become a consultant to others who have lost a job, the week after their Father died or before Christmas or squarely on their BIRTHDAY!
Okay, after a while certain doubts do creep in. I have currently changed jobs three times in less than two years. I am suppose to be career building. But never fear Stanford because with each job loss comes another and better opportunity. I attribute my perseverance to my Mother. I attribute my faith to Sara and paying tithing. With each job loss comes several questions. Is it me? Office politic, should I concede? What will I do? What is the price of gas?... really I must stop there and take a deep breath. Whewww... First, I need to remember my faith, that God is looking over all and like the lilies of the field, God will provide. Second, I must persevere. I need to go to bed and wake up in the morning and then come up with a game plan... and then pray and get everyone I know to pray for me.
Well, so far that is the strategy I follow... and oddly enough... in the end I am always gratefully for having past through the experience. All-in-all my trials are quite trite.
