Welcome to The Search Scene, issue #6! Holidays take a toll on me, but I’m back — here as your go-to resource when searching for work and/or love. :)
Firstly, I’d like to start off by saying this pandemic is not taking a vacation, so please stay safe and mask up. Trust me, I can’t wait to play Future’s Mask Off when this is over (you laughed).
So…I recently had a profound reflection about The Search Scene. I get a lot of questions about why I started this newsletter, and what fuels me at its core is helping bad@$$ women like you, in your search for work and/or love. However, I realized something pivotal about searching — that in my life, the process of searching was the most enlightening because it allowed me to figure out what I truly wanted. It is the actual searching for and then finding whether it is the right partner or the right job, that makes it all worth it. It is about the journey, leading up to the destination.
When you feel broken from a breakup, or worthless from a lay-off, your self-esteem can be absolutely crushed and things can look bleak. Chin up, lady. Things will turn around when you practice self-love, invest time and effort into the search, and have faith that things will be okay. Don’t fixate on the past as a roadblock, but rather, as a guiding point towards your future. What have you learned from these experiences? How can you focus on moving forward? What truly makes everything worth it to me, is the resilience I’ve built from difficult times — when I picked myself up from rock bottom and learned how to love myself and rebuild my confidence. I’ve grown the most from the most difficult times in my life and learned that whether good or bad, it is the search that made me who I am today. So, if you ask me what fuels this newsletter, it really is about helping YOU in your search — so that you can learn more about your needs, wants, non-negotiables, and more. So that you can enjoy the search and find what you want and deserve in work and/or love.
