Thank you. On April 23, 2014 I took a chance and asked you to help me. I allowed myself to be vulnerable and put something publicly out into the world.
As you know Universe, I was struggling in the area of employment. I had a 3 month goal in my head.
As you know Universe, you had other plans. You made me wait, be patient, you had me make a few errors and re asses my worth and what I thought I should be doing vs what I should be open to.
As you know Universe, it took 10 months and a few adventures along the way, even re visiting an old “stomping ground” in July. Little did I know that would be the start of my turning point. You knew.
Thank you Universe for being patient with me.
Thank you Universe for showing me things about myself that helped me regain some confidence. Confidence in my worth as an employable asset. As a human being.
Thank you Universe for allowing me to try a few jobs that got my thought process going. Jobs that didn’t work because I felt constrained.
Thank you Universe for giving me some free time to rest and re charge. I needed it and I fought it but you made it happen.
Thank you Universe for showing me that asking for help and seeking guidance is absolutely ok and not something to be ashamed of.
Thank you Universe for showing me that the value of my friendships and my ability to stay connected on a human level helping others is karma which can be returned by the right people.
Thank you Universe for testing, challenging and kicking my butt in gear. I like challenges and you knew that.
Thank you Universe for giving me the strength and ability to realize I can be myself and sell myself in an interview. To just be Mark.
Thank you Universe for making me open to an opportunity that has so far been amazing.
Thank you Universe for presenting me with a job, a place where I finally feel like I fit in and can be utilized through growth and learning that I am finally open to.
Thank you Universe mostly for helping me to see me and putting me on a journey that has just begun.
Most of all Universe for making me accountable, thank you for having Faith in me when I was full of self doubt.
In a world where we get beaten down, lose confidence in ourselves, we fail to take a shot when we need it most. It is scary and you can be judged. Do it anyway. The only person you are battling is you. You are all that matters. In the end succeed or fail, you gave it a shot. Don’t give up. Thank yourself and the Universe when you see the direction in which you may have been blind to before.
I took it, I made it public. I made myself accountable to what I asked. It wasn’t easy but I am here, I am thankful and I have a job I am finally happy with again.
Thank you Universe for opportunity.
Thank you Universe, I put it out there and you showed me the way.
