So today is my weekend off, YAY! I get every other weekend off in my line of work, not that I am complaining. I am going to go tonight with friends to celebrate the completion of my Degree. So far this week I have been updating my CV and sending to anyone and everyone that I hope will read it. I sent it to my HR department at my current employer so we will see where that leads as well. I feel frustrated because other colleagues who have completed theirs have gone on to their dream jobs, but because mine is so generalised, it isn’t as easy for me to do that. Lesson number 1000080, do not compare yourself to others!
I did some meditation to try to unblock my emotions as I have felt angry, sad and frustrated (as above). But my good friends have come to rescue me once more. We can go for months without seeing each other and then we do, we pick up where we left off. It was the same with the two friends that I haven’t seen in over ten years. We met up two weeks ago, and it was amazing how, even after all this time and life experiences, we had so much in common. This just goes to show that it is quality and not the number of friends that we should have. We may look ‘popular’ with our 3000 friends on social media. But do we really know them and do they really know us? I will guess that the answer will be ‘NO.’
Although social media can be used for excellent things, it can also cause a lot of harm. Young people can view their success purely by the number of likes, shares and comments that they receive on their social platforms when really they should be looking at what support and love they have physically around them. Wouldn’t it be great if we could tell someone who they are liked and loved in person, than just through a computer? Maybe once a week shut these platforms off and spend a day just doing that.
Today, wherever you go, carry the intention of peace, love, and harmony in your heart.
