A few months back, I decided something: I wanted a job.
Okay, well, not quite–I do have a job, and it keeps me pretty busy. But I work from home, and that time the desire for a more “normal” work experience–one in which I actually set an alarm in the morning, wear nice clothes and–importantly–talk to people. So, while taking a walk one day, I said an affirmation:
“I will get an on-site work position.”
Within the week, my job agent called me about an on-site opportunity, and within two weeks I had a two-month contract for a full-time proofreading position at a local ad agency–something that I hadn’t had in over a year.
And after starting, I enjoyed it even more than I thought I would.
Sometimes changing your life requires deep internal shifts that take a great deal of time and effort to create. Other times, it just happens in an instant.
After Rachel and Matthew had their first child, they had a couple of fights. Well, okay, more than a couple—they fought for over three years. They fought about schedules. They fought about bad habits. They even fought about the lawn mower. And besides actually having their child, it was the best thing that could've happened.
