Staying hopeful through confusion and demotivation

So I haven’t written in a while, I think I’ve just been lazy and a little scared. The past few months have been a little up and down and dry for me. I want a job but I lack motivation to look. I am a little out of focus because on one hand I want a job to get money but then I also want to kick start a career. I lack focus on where I exactly want to go and so this can be stressful at times and leaves me feeling uninspired. Such decisions pan out as life goes on and we sometimes pressure ourselves too much into believing we must have all of the answers.

Sometimes we forget to just enjoy life and trust that things work out as they should. We all have our own individual life path. It’s very easy to take life too seriously when really that’s just our minds talking nonsense. Abraham Hicks says that when pure inspiration hits, the universe will guide you to where you must be and what actions you must take and when you know this…”wild horses cannot keep you from it.”

Being unemployed has allowed me to explore what I wish to pursue creatively and to stay open to random opportunities. I guess it’s reinforced that my main priority is to pursue work I enjoy and that is fulfilling; work that will allow me to progress and learn so that I can build a career rather than just working to make money. Sometimes that can be hard to accept and I just feel lazy and bored when I have nothing to do. I feel as though I am watching the days pass me by and time is slipping away and being wasted. However that is a perception and interpretation from the ego. We have been conditioned to believe that we must always be active in order to prove ourselves. My friends that are working and earning money wish that they were in my shoes! We seem to criticise and point out the flaws of where we find ourselves in life rather than relax and know that everything is as it should be.

I read a quote today from my Angel Messages book by Juan Nakamori,

“No matter how difficult your circumstances, never give up hope. Trust in the wisdom of the Creator as, out of the blue, events may turn in your favour.”

This quote has made me feel so at ease since I always tell myself and others whenever feeling stagnant; you don’t know what’s around the corner. It just takes a single event or meeting for everything to change and for great things happen. It’s exciting and encouraging to know that life can surprise us and show us everything we’ve wanted unfold before our eyes.

I also had a dream a few weeks back in which I was walking along a road and just enjoying my journey even though there wasn’t much to see (which is how we should live life). I then approached a crossroads and I saw a sign pointing specifically towards a road with my full name on it boldly and clearly. I interpret this dream as a reflection of my current situation of being unemployed and confused. It is a reminder that I am always on a journey and I must enjoy it and when the time comes to choose a path, I will know which one to take as it will boldly indicate what direction is the right route for me.

Life always works out for us and I find that when we attain what we’ve wished for, we forget never having it in the first place. We then look back with understanding as to why things panned out the way they did. I hope I can read this back next month and feel as if I’ve progressed immensely :). There is always opportunity for change and to take steps in achieving what you want regardless of where you currently find yourself.

  1. I totally can relate to your post. I think to be in the void, in this nothingness, is really a good thing. We have to live there for a while for powerful changes to occur. Something will come and fill it up, all we have to do is stay receptive. The key, like you say, is to let go of the struggle, relax and enjoy whatever is at the time. Love the dream, too!

  2. Oh, such refreshing candour, I love it. I think more and more people are feeling this way about ‘getting a job’.

    I’ve been in your shoes for a while now and have learned to realise that extreme contrast always brings delightful new insights into my error thinking. On the ‘way’ it can certainly be confusing and I admire your positivity … keep it up!

    1. Thank you 🙂 we are never alone & you’re right, we’ve launched great rockets of desire. The time inbetween desire & physical fruition can be viewed as a pregnancy for such desires.
