Leave and let go

Knowledge-is-learning

Recently I’ve been toying with this crazy idea about leaving it all behind. Let myself explain it better.. It’s much easier said than done. When it comes to ‘leave it all behind’ this image of running away from everything what’s harming my life is the first thing it comes to my mind. But when I look around and I see how the world evolves and all the beautiful and important things my world is made of, and then I know it’s not that easy to be done. And, also, I’m not so sure that could bring any relief to the situation itself. There’s had to be another way.

Anyway, I’m stuck between my own thoughts of leaving and letting go. At this present moment everything around me seems like too much to handle. I’m broken, loveless, living in a desperate situation; nothing seems to be good enough. But wait.. There’s much more than that. I have two beautiful kids, great friends, many talents to develop  and for sure much more! It is an internal feeling that nothing lasts forever.

An artist of the floating world*

I’m happy to be back here again. It took me a long while to unfold my need to be writing again. I’ve been learning to master the art of (dis)connection and at the same time, proving myself that art was not mere an object of my passion. I’ve been under much stress, that’s true. And the fact that I feel lonely and full of energy has made me think twice how was I going to continue with my writing. Many things are happening at the same time, life evolves in mysterious ways and sometimes what we think normal isn’t like that anymore. Nothing wrong with that. There aren’t absolutes. We tend to think we are on the right path, and the following moment fall into emptiness without warning. And that’s fine. Although we may be not prepared for it.

Let’s see.. In the past months I’ve realized my writing hasn’t improved much. I’ve been too much involved with myself, my own visions of life, changing from one subject to the other. Keeping my head among the clouds, walking all the time on the same circle. In that sense I don’t see much improvement. There has been no reality check after all, no art.

The Ultimate Job Search – making the best out your career and life mission

Sponsored post by Holanda Conecta* and Conquista Coach

Since I started with this blog I’ve been more than secretly hoping that opportunities were to come to me one way or another. Being unemployed, now longer than a year, makes every day more difficult to believe there will be a job out there for me. It’s a kind of depression not to be working, not only because I’m living in a kind of poverty, also the fact that I’m aware that all my talents and skills are not being used. It also has to do with a lack of self-fulfilment.

Of course, you can think this is just an excuse not to go for it. Like I heard many times, if I’m so desperate about having a job, there are plenty of possibilities out there. And I agree there are possibilities, but as I said at the beginning not all these job opportunities seem to be the right one for me. Believe me; I myself can’t afford to stay any longer without earning that money I need every month to pay my bills.

This blog has been opening me some doors, not only many people are actually reading what I have to say, there are others waiting to see how I evolve and wishing me all the best. Imagine my happiness when Eva Visser Plaza from Holanda Conecta, together with Eugenia Vega Montesino from Conquista Coach invited me to participate to her training ‘The Ultimate Job Search’ in Amsterdam on a whole day Saturday. This was the chance I was waiting for to learn new tips & tricks and interact with fellow job seekers! Every opportunity is always a possibility for change. This was clearly mine.

A new hope

Image

So, of course the title of this post is the name of the first, and later fourth, George Lucas’ film Star Wars. It’s not such a random title. It says a lot about struggle and how in times when everything seems difficult, there’s still hope.

And that’s how I feel today. The challenge has came to an end. It’s over and done. Today is officially the last day I will be receiving unemployment insurance and this quest on social media I started to being helped to find a job is not longer of use. Or yes it is. But in a different form. I will tell you more about it.

Reality is that  I’ve got nice tips, advice, contacts, a better network, because yes networking works, I said it before. But when it comes to a real solution to my matters, then things are different that what I was expecting. I told you about how difficult it has been to keep my spirit high after having expectations that didn’t work.

So, today on the 13th of may I still don’t have a job, money enough for one more month to pay bills, and still no clue how everything will develop after all.

And you may think, how can I still think about hope. I think that hope is something quite different than luck. Although luck looks like a nice word, it’s more a random idea of getting what you want without doing anything for it. Like winning the lottery or getting presents without waiting for them. But no, I think luck is chance of fortune, and we think it depends on what you believe in, can be religion or superstition, not depending on our own behaviour and the way of thinking.
