I must have thought finding a job in Broadcasting would be easier after I graduated. I thought my nice professors would be willing to help me land somewhere. And some really were. But I don’t think I understood the amount of effort I had to put in to make things happen; nor was I consistently willing.
The truth is in college I was not the cream of the crop. I didn’t shine that bright in my major. I didn’t work for it has hard as some of my other classmates did that are working in News right now. And I’m not sure I want it now.
I know I don’t want to let my degree go to waste. I don’t want to feel less than or be considered less than to my former classmates. Then I realized I am making this about them; how they will view me. I am letting that mindset fuel my desire to work in Broadcasting.
Shouldn’t my desire to work in Broadcasting fuel me to work in Broadcasting? It’s not about my former classmates and their careers. I wasn’t willing to work like them for News and I am not willing to work hard to appease someone else in order to be considered equal.
What I want is my own path. My choices and desires have to be separate from what I think people will think of me.
I know now it was not about them looking down on me but how I thought they viewed me because that’s how I viewed myself.
3 Questions for myself and one prayer:
- What do I want to do?
- What am I supposed to be doing?
- How do I achieve it?
Lord lead me to discover your perfect will for my life. Please help to be obedient to follow your direction. Amen.
I encourage you to ask these questions for yourself and say this prayer especially if you feel like me.
