So last week I came back from my short & sweet holiday. One of the things that I was looking forward to coming back to Australia, is the start of my new career / my first official full time professional job. A recruitment consultant role. However, last Thursday , four days prior to my starting date, I had a call from the managing director that the offer was withdrawn. Then boom! just like that one of the foundation or momentum that I thought I had in 2016 , suddenly became the first wall that I had to climb.
It was frustrating and devastating, after all, I put a lot of effort, time, sacrifice and risky choices. And the fact that it was taken away within a few minutes of phone call, really caught me off guard.
I went hermit mode and had a shutdown period in the past few days. Its been awhile since I’ve experienced this, and, to be honest it’s not something I wanna blog about, as I created this blog to encourage and delight, not to rant about my life and talk about the depressing parts of it. But I believe that sharing your vulnerability is one of the best ways to connect to people and to expand the world you see. One of the main reason, I created this blog is so that I can share my thoughts, my experience and feelings, and I believe I did not really do well last year, so I guess this is the first step for me to improve in that area. So please bear with me!
It has been a week since that happened, I am slowly getting back on track. Back to step 1 ay.. And now that I have all this time in my hands, I have to rethink where will I invest my time, which path to take and explore what options I have now . I still have a uni degree to finish but it feels like I have something that I need to do besides that, and that is something I am currently looking into.
That it for me hehe.. Thank you for listening! I hope you all having a great start so far, if not that’s cool yo! Just climb or break that wall. It’s okay to have a moment of sadness and downtime but remember to pick yourself up. Obstacles are part of life and these are the events that will either mold or break us.
Have a great weekend 🙂 You guys are awesome!!
“If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it”.- Michael Jordan
