Positive thinking and Job Hunting

Job hunting is like doing the dishes.  I don't like doing the dishes, but they have to be done.

I'm reading a book by Louse Hay and Cheryl Richardson, called "You Can Create An Exceptional Life".  It has a lot of affirmations in it.

I'm trying to get my head wrapped around positively looking for work and getting a good job that supports me any my family.

Saying affirmations helps.

Some of the few that I've written down are:

1.  "I'm thankful only good is before me."

It did say "Only Good Lies before me."  But I kept thinking, are there a good lies, and why would I want to tell lies.  So I changed it to "I'm thankful only good is before me."  That helps me better.

Here's number two.

2.  "My body is healthy and free from illness."

I've always said just, "I'm so thankful I'm healthy." This keeps me from a lot of sickness that everyone else has.  And you know, if you get up in the morning and Say, "I feel wonderful today and full of energy."  You will feel that way.

At night, just before I'm going to sleep, I say, "I'm so thankful when my alarm goes off, I will feel refreshed and ready to go for  the day."

And sometimes, if I want to get up early in the morning I say, "I need to wake up at 6:00 am," and "I will feel refreshed and ready to go for  the day."  And do you know, I do wake up feeling refreshed and ready to go.

The third affirmation I wrote down is a really good one.

3.  "There is an unlimited supply of prosperity for my family and me."

We should all be saying this, but I'm going to add "I'm thankful." in front of all my affirmations, because it is so powerful.

I hope everyone finds this insightful and enjoys my positive thoughts as I go on my Job hunt.  Take care and God Bless and keep acting every day.

Going Forward - What Am I Doing?

Going forward with life is sometimes not an easy task.  I to 13 years out of my life working for a big company only to be fired after giving my all.  I miss my friends and company family there.  A lot of them are still my friends.

Finding that new job has been a challenge.  

First I wanted to start my own business teaching people how they could relax by doing art.  Sounds like a great concept.  So I enrolled in business school, paid a mentor to teach me set up and ways to go about setting up this business.  Then she lost her funding.  And left me with a blank slate.  I didn't comprehend any of the teachings that I needed for the business.  The Taxes...  That was my road block.

So what next?  Try a different avenue.  I was able to gain some Artist Certificates through Grumbacher and began teach young kids Art.  It was fun, but the classes were few and far between.  Not enough to make a living.

Back to the Job search. I found a position doing data entry.  What a break and I really like the people at this position.  After a year and half, I was bumped from my position.  And I loved that job too!!

Ok, so my title says going forward.  All that is in the past right?!!!  

Going forward.  I love YouTube, and Instagram.   I love doing mini videos of myself and my Art.  I haven't figured out the total YouTube thing, but Instagram is working good.

I still want to be around people, and I do need a full time job right now.

I have to switch gears and realize that Art is my life, and I need to get back to my Career, which is Secretarial.   But they don't cal it that anymore.  It's Administrative Assistant or Office help... What is up with that?  And my degree AA in WordProcessing.  That isn't even a part of the workforce vocabulary anymore.

But part of Word Processing is typing, and communication and office functions.  So they still hire us
"Secretaries" just under a different name.

Oh and did you know, we no longer send our cover letters and resumes by mail.  It's all done with email and texting.  If that isn't crazy.  Some employers won't even look at your resume if you send it as an attachment.  So where does that leave me.  I have to visit the unemployment office, though its not called that anymore.  And there is still networking.

Wish me luck... I'm on my way out the door to get milk.  Maybe I'll find a job on the way.  Have a wonderful day and God Bless!!

Do Art its relaxing.  Oh and my other favorite thing right now is Honey bees.  I'm thinking of getting some honey.  Maybe I'll do this daily so I will get out of bed early in the morning.  Bye.  Check out goldengirlmk on Instagram.

Other events and Mr Marx.

Mr Marx is a new addition to the family.  Well not so new any more.  He's about a year and half and as persnickety as ever.  But so cute!!

This is my Grand-daughter and I at the puyallup fair.

 Such a sweet little one.

 Love Chickens.

Ok I apologize !

My last post didn't work.  The video didn't play.  I'm not sure why maybe because I chose it off the picture album and not the video.

So let me choose some photos.

So I have been celebrating the holidays with family.
 Making my own embelishments.
 Enjoying Holiday spiced gumdrops.
 Creating crocheted blankets


 Posting on my door.... Christmas cards received.
 Making paper books.
 Crocheting slippers.
 Making Fantabulous dinners.

Time to get back to work in many ways
