This weekend couldn't come at a better time. Wednesday, I heard the position I interviewed for, was pulled. Ironically, this is not the first time I've had this happen to me. Many employers are "window shopping" for the perfect candidate, but don't have the budget to pull the trigger and hire. I'm becoming accustomed to this, but wasn't prepared for the recruiter's reaction on Wednesday.
He whined to me. He whined to me about his personal fears of losing his job. I try to be empathetic, but after 11 months of being unemployed, I don't have it in me to placate another person's fears over the possibility of losing their job. I wish I could say he's unique, but no. Others do this to me. Typically, I handle this well, but right now, I just don't want to hear it.
My energy is low and I'm in definite need for some "head clearing" (I believe head clearing should be an activity like skiing).
Several months ago, my sister asked if I'd be interested in this workshop at Kripalu grammar girl workshop. I admit, I hadn't a clue who Mignon Fogarty was, but really liked what I read. I'm looking forward to her workshop and staying at this retreat center for yoga, health, and holistic living. The atmosphere is peaceful and I plan on spending some time meditating.
I can't wait! A weekend of learning coupled with a zen-like atmosphere is just what I need.
