It seems to me that searching for an actual job is much harder than working every day at an actual job.
Two months ago I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in journalism. I never dreamed it would be so difficult to find full-time employment.
I have a communications degree! That means that I am extremely marketable right? Wrong. I have sent out almost a hundred different resumes and have heard back from about 3 employers.
I’ve heard that it takes people 7 months or more to fine full-time employment! That sounds like an eternity to me!
I’m only two months and feeling extremely worn out and frustrated.
A naturally positive person I decided last night that I would wake up and make today my HAPPY DAY. All that basically means is that I would find five or six things in my daily life that make me extremely happy and choose to focus on those.
The first thing I chose was Starbucks. I love the strong smell of coffee that I am greeted with upon walking into the shop.
I ordered my usual grande caramel coffee. As I was waiting for my coffee something delicious caught my eye. I saw a piece of chocolate chip banana bread. Four hundred and fifty calories of pure goodness.
Normally, I am a health nut and avoid food like this but, today was my happy day after all. And I decided that this piece of bread was going to make me happy.
I bought the bread, took my coffee and headed to a table. I was feeling quite good at the moment. I was proud of myself for coming up with the idea of a HAPPY DAY!
My HAPPY DAY bliss didn’t last to long though. Seconds after I set my coffee down it spilled all over me, the floor, my computer and the table. In a split second I had the choice to become extremely frustrated and angry or just laugh.
I chose to LAUGH! And laugh I did right in Starbucks.
I discovered that one of the things that makes me the happiest in life is the amount of ridiculously silly things I do on a regular basis.
