I feel like today is a good day to pause and remember my intention. We do this in my online yoga class, but it’s usually a practice that stumps me. Approximately 99% of the time, I cannot come up with an intention (an intention being something that I want to achieve over the upcoming hour). While the other 1% of the time I don’t even try to come up with an intention because I am positive I will come up empty.
But I do like the thought of having an intention because I like to identify my motivation. Down The Road it gives me something to look back on. I guess it’s kind of like a temporary mission statement or a mile marker that can indicate how far I have traveled on any certain path. I am always free to change paths, but for me it is important to know why I am changing trails. I am currently in the middle of switching lanes; I just don’t know which lane I want to be in yet.
And while I’m figuring it out, I thought I’d see if there were others who wanted to come along on my journey. If you’ve been following along, you’ve probably determined that I have a God-given penchant for analyzation. Instead of continuing to dismiss this ability as “over thinking”, I decided to see if there was a way to use it. (You may be asking, “If this person loves to analyze so much why isn’t she an economist or something?” The short answer is, I prefer words over numbers.)
So I thought I’d take the enjoyment of synthesizing, simplifying and communicating information (my sidekicks to analyzing) and start this little blog to see where it goes. Well, I just have to say…I couldn’t be more pleased that people are responding. I’m excited to build a little community on the shared experience of unemployment or just uncertainty in general. Because I believe that the hesitancy of the unknown transcends the matter which is unknown. I appreciate everyone who has read, commented, or provided any type of personal feedback. Thank you and I hope that you continue to enjoy and share!
P.S. There are some features that I want to add to jazz things up a bit. (I also have some interesting post ideas.) It may take some time for me to get these ideas worked out, but I would love for you to continue checking it out to see how things come along. Of course, I will keep posting notes like I have been.
