I have been going through huge life changes for the last three years. The most traumatic has been the loss of financial stability and income. It seemed that previously everything I touched turned to gold. Now every opportunity flees before I can touch it.
When I first noticed that events were not going my way, I grew frustrated and a little depressed. I had created an image of myself based on my career and financial wealth. Now I wondered who I was, and what I had done to create these seemingly unfavorable changes.
I’ve been in the advertising field for 20 years. It is easy for people to despise advertising, but there are two sides to every story. I have seen advertising save businesses and organization from failing, which saved jobs and services. I know that advertising helps support sporting events (including high school), my favorite TV shows, and even public bus transportation. Advertising is creative and provides a good wage – for other people :). I like my clients and enjoy interacting with them. So it’s difficult for me to understand this pull into shamanism with such a force that it’s hard for me to focus on anything else.
But each way I turn there is a brick wall. And at some point, I have to decide to “read the writing on the wall.” And embrace the change and “know” without a doubt that there is a plan for me that is greater than anything I could have planned.
