I dunno if I mentioned this last week, but I finished up at my job on Wednesday (or was it Tuesday? One day last week anyways). I’ve got to go back to finalise stuff on Thursday then it’s over. I’d been planning for a nice little vacation, figuring there’d be no work around until after Christmas.
So yesterday during lunch I got a phone call – was I available for work? Then today they called back. I’ve got a 2 week contract (possibly more) in the city, starting next week. That’s probably the most effortless job I’ve ever got (although I probably put in the hard yards at some stage, impressing people at an agency interview… or maybe not, maybe they just need someone, stat).
It’s funny. When I was waiting around at the beauty parlour the other day between getting my hair dyed and my spray tan, I picked up that book, The Secret, and read it. I reckon all that stuff about putting positive thoughts out in the universe and declaring what you want etc is bollocks.
This is the Kathryn Theory on life, the universe and everything: it’s random. Sometimes you got the mojo, other times you don’t. And you never know when that mojo fairy is going to come sit on your shoulder. Think about weight loss – you work hard and do the right thing and you get the results – but sometimes it just all comes together and it’s effortless. Other times it really is hard work. It happens with everything: work, love, money… I don’t believe it comes from our thoughts or what we “put out there”; I do believe sometimes it just happens. Of course when our actions are aligned with our goals then it seems to come together more often.
