I’m not a religious person. I fall into that category of people who understand religion from a sociological construct perspective, but, sadly, for all my efforts and study, I feel nothing. However, I do feel like there’s something driving the bus, so to speak. There’s an energy out there, something that kindness and love can affect. I think that there’s a force, like fate or karma, that can be counted on from time to time when you really need it. But that’s about as much faith as I can muster from the universe.
There’s been a few times in my life when I’ve really, really needed a job. Twice that I can think of, I’ve been so desperately unhappy with my situation that I’ve asked the universe for some help. And, somehow, whether it was because I asked or just random chance, something came along.
Right now, I feel like I’m in the same situation as before. My work life is becoming barely tolerable and I’m feeling it. I’ve been working on preparing my resume and trying to figure out what the next step is, but I haven’t yet asked for my “favor.” I suppose that perhaps this blog post is my way of asking, so here goes:
Dear Magical Universe Robots that somehow seem to help me out when I need it:
It would be super neat if you could point me in the right direction to finding a better work prospect. I’ve been a very good girl this year, and hopefully earned myself a bit of good work karma. All I want is to do something I like, am good at, with people who are relatively nice and respectful, for decent money, relatively close to home, for reasonable hours.
With all due respect and deserved gratitude
Yours very truly,
(Of course, reading that makes me sound like I’m asking for a magic unicorn to fly me to the mystical chocolate and beer island for all eternity. Hopefully this request is a little more realistic than that.)
