Last September, I started posting my goal to find a full-time job on this site. To achieve my goal, I uprooted myself from Vancouver to Calgary. Throughout October, I was busy adjusting to the new city and sending numerous resumes . I kept on doing these tasks until the end of the year.
In the first week of January, I got my first phone call for a job interview. The organization was Comox Strathcona Regional District in Courtenay, BC. I was excited and went to my first, and hopefully my last, job interview. After two agonizing two weeks of waiting for the news, I received the call that I was one of the two successful applicants for the job.
I was thrilled to read what Lincolnposte had to say about social change and how we as humans seem to be trying to go about it. And Jodi Taylor's brave post about changing the world made my heart smile.
I feel really good about talking about change from the roots on up. In other words changing ourselves before trying to change others. For me, learning how to do this has been a real struggle. How do I do this gently and with kindness? (the tendency has been to be violent and impatient with myself I.e "what's wrong with you, self? Hurry up and stop being so judgmental" or whatever the change in question may be. The point is do you notice how silly it is to try to combat the judgemental thing with self-judgement being the starting point?
