I have been somewhat restless in the first years of working as a high school teacher. I got the job by chance, without a teacher degree, and I always knew that one day I would end up doing something else. I couldn’t wait until this new thing would arrive and I wasn’t always at ease with my job. I now have gained much more experience, calm and trust while working as a teacher. I love my job more than ever before and even though I still know that I am going to transition into a new career, I like my job and am very grateful for it. It has taught me a lot and I always love working with people. Every day is different and while I have to stick to certain subjects, I am very free how to present and look at a topic with my students.
At a time when I felt very frustrated in this teaching job, I was asking myself what was required to create a more positive path in my professional life. How could I attract a job that absolutely suited me and I would love doing? How could I find a fulfilling professional career when all I could feel at this moment was deep frustration?
While I was asking myself this question I heard a very clear answer. I was told that it is important to express gratitude towards every job I have ever done in my life. So I tried to do this and I remembered every work I have had from the age of a teenager until this day. I noticed that by sending out appreciation to every little job, also to the smallest or what I would consider the most stupid jobs, I cleared away the frustration as a pattern in my work experience, and instead I felt that I have had a satisfying and rich professional experience. I realized that in fact, I have had many wonderful jobs that I have really loved. So I thought that when I have experienced jobs before that really suited me, why wouldn’t I experience this again?
With clearing out not only the frustration, but also the anger that might have been attached to a certain job, I felt excitement coming back to me and it opened my eyes to a field of new possibilities. We can do this with every area of our life and it helps us to release what we have wished to be different. When we let this go and no longer carry negative or seemingly negative experiences with us, we are free to step into a new and fresh part in our lives.
We all feel best and serve best in a job that we really love!
