I don’t know if you ever take the time to reflect on where you have been in life, but from time to time, I do. It is good to look back to see where we have been and where we are going, and by taking a stroll down memory lane, you really appreciate where you are at the present time. At least that is how it has worked for me, and it serves as a means of motivation to get me going when I feel that I am out of energy.
I found myself daydreaming between classes today thinking about the jobs I have had over the last few years. They have shaped me into the person I am today, and there are times in my life where I use the skills that I developed at them. If you were to look at my resume, you would see a broad tapestry of jobs, from working in water damage restoration valencia, to flipping burgers in a McDonalds in L.A., to my few days working in a pig barn.
I know that you might think that some of these jobs didn’t give me the skills I needed to pursue my college degree, but I look at it this way: those jobs that I didn’t like taught me what I was not looking for in a career.
While I need to reflect on my life from time to time, there is always something to bring me back to the present – like my new job I am starting tomorrow.
Wish me luck!
