Today Was A Good Day.

Today was a good day. —–cue the Ice Cube song… hehehe

Today was one of the best days I have had in a long time. Reason being, I woke up happy and full of energy. I have been feeling a bit down the past couple of weeks, especially with the stresses of finding a job. The endless job searching, cover letter writing, and interviewing is tiring. Today, I woke up unexpectedly energized and excited to start the day.

Letting Go

I have a hard time letting go. I am a grudge holder and it’s quite terrible to be honest. They say that time heals all wounds, but I am frequently skeptical. Big or small of a wound, I always remember. I tend to  have that grudge at the back of my mind regardless of if I have forgiven you or pretended to let go. Since my early years, I have been like this. I mean, do people really change? When they hurt you once, don’t you think that just makes it more likely that they will hurt you again?

It is something I need to work on. I know this. My mother always says to let go because it only weakens the person holding on. It comes easy to her, maybe because of her sweet and lovable soul or because she believes this is what God wants. I know she is right, but some part of me just can’t agree with it.

Holding grudges affects me in so many ways. I lose sleep, i continuously play the situation over and over trying to understand it, it puts me in an awful mood and it affects relationships. I pick my battles of course and don’t always hold a grudge, but when I do, it is usually for the long run…..

What is your take on this? Do you hold grudges? If so, when is the time to let go?

I have been looking for a job for 7 months. In fact, it was 7 months this past Friday. I have had little to no luck. Currently unemployed, I have applied to probably 100+ jobs and have had 14 interviews. I was offered one job at a hospital foundation, but the offer was just so low, almost disrespectful, that I had to decline. Let’s just say I got paid that amount when I was 17 working in a kitchen. Since I come from a non-profit background, money is not the main factor, the passion and love for the sector is. However, I had to decline that particular position because it was just impossible for me survive off of that. Besides this, I have gotten no offers and It has been bringing me down.
