Can You See the Signs?
I lost my job due to a change in strategy.
30 days to pack my bags & leave the USA.
I had left my country, my boyfriend & my job for this opportunity, all to end in a snap.
With no plan in mind, I took a soul-searching trip to Mexico.
Never in my life have I come across so many signs from the Universe.
I discovered that, when most vulnerable, you become fully aware of your surroundings.
You hang on to anything and everything that will give you strength.
The encouragement of a stranger.
Lyrics of a song on the radio.
The quote in a fortune cookie.
The name of a bar.
And you start to trust them.
As my roomie said: “You’re lucky, few people get to start on a blank page” Reboot.
I had to decide of the next step.
What is my value?
What do I want?
Where to next?
I burned through my savings.
Reached out to all my friends.
Traveled hours for interviews.
Showed up to companies unannounced. Moved from one couch to another.
Started a blog.
Created a portfolio.
I go after my dreams. I am surrounded by opportunities.
Visa deadline, what-ifs? Forgotten.
Every step I take leads me closer to my goal.
I am confident that it is a matter of days before I sign my dream job.
