Life today for some of us can be challenging. The global situation is grim and most of us are working tirelessly towards improving our situation. As challenging and painful as it is,
it can become demoralizing and it is important for us to surround ourselves with friends and family with healthy minds who can support us and encourage us to be resourceful as well as to strengthen our self-esteem to move on ahead. It is imperative for those of us who are in such mayhem to re-establish our outlook and open new doors to the better times that are surely ahead.
Turning back the hand of time is impossible and we should not feel guilty about our past. However, we should feel empowered that our past experiences should lead us to think more cleverly on how to improve and progress in other ways which I believe will give us a tremendous advantage towards our future. I also believe sharing our misfortunes and not justifying the cause is a healthy way of accepting the fact that we all make major mistakes. It is part of who we are as human beings. We are a vulnerable species.
Why this topic? I was sitting amongst friends and they were debating that professionals doing jobs out of their regular job description is beneath their status. My thoughts, you got to do what you got to do; it is called making a living until better can be done.
Why should one be shameful about doing a job that is beneath him/her? The point is
he/she is earning a living and that is most important. I think that it is more shameful
to do nothing or to stand by waiting for the perfect job that fits your qualifications. Many Russian doctors and professionals came to Israel and were cleaning houses and doing odd jobs while they were waiting for jobs in their field. The key here is survival. After all you cannot pay bills or go to the supermarket paying with pride.
The fact is – the economy remains the same and it is not changing as quickly as we would all like. The fact is – it is painful and the mental affliction it has on some of us can lead us to a mind-numbing crisis. My motto “You worry more, you worry less it is the same result.” As difficult as it is we need to get up and go out there and find a way to carry on until better comes along. Moving ahead, brainstorming ideas, with or without a plan, may bring us to a place we may have never encountered and it may work out for our benefit.
