i was gonna reply this to a previous post but then i realized, a new thread would be wonderful.
five days ago, i was this lonely, frustrated and full of self pity person who feels that the world around me keeps on moving while i stand still... stagnant.... useless. Nothing came easy...every single step i took, i had to strive sooo hard to meet the requirements and wait painstakingly for the results. i was discouraged and rejected many times. it was awful. it was frustrating.
then one night, i listened to joel osteen, a brilliant pastor, and he said that every morning, we should condition our minds that we are happy.. that we will be happy.. and that happiness is here.
the next day, i woke up and told myself, " i will get myself a job interview today." I said it the very moment i opened my eyes while i was lying in bed. "i will get myself a job interview today." so i went in front of my laptop, went from one website to another, called one facility to another and finally got 2 facilities that is willing to accept graduate nurses. i felt so relieved. for weeks, somebody finally told me they would consider me. and that was the start. i went to that facility and poof! i got hired. just like that.. i got hired. no hullabaloo...no nonsense... i got hired!
it was exhilirating.... it was magnificent... it was one of God's miracles in my life... some might consider it coincidence, but for me, that was God's miracle. :heartbeat
so to all of those who feels down and miserable, we should all be hopeful....as joel osteen said, we shouldnt magnify our problem. instead, magnify our God.. "i am happy.. i will be happy.. happiness is here."

Good for you!!! When I started college at 36 for the first time, I attended a discussion that was held on thoughts and controlling your life. In the year I have learned to say what I want, as if I already have it. They referred to this as the law of attraction. I am telling you, It has, or I have changed my whole life! Not to say I dont have days that I feel pitiful, but my gosh the change in my attitude is complimented by everyone that has know me for a while. I grew up in a conservative, christian family. I now have my own beliefs, but I respect all faiths. I do not think that the bible is THE truth, I do not believe anyone knows the truth about what this life experience really is. I do think that the possibility of a god does exist. I guess that is why it is "faith",believing in a power that yet, we have not proved. That makes life even more amazing, looking for the answers and the evidence!! Who knows what we really are-I mean we may be under a microscope or hey-maybe we are all molecules in a being that we can have no knowledge of. Just like our molecules work, digest, ingest, divide, protect, and die for us-but they just know their little world-probably no knowledge that they are inside a human. I mean, I know I sound nutty, but do ever sit back and think about all the universe and maybe the planets are the cells and we are like the organelles keeping something that we cannot even comprehend-maybe a "god", alive and we live and die for it?! Okay I am way off subject-I apologize. Sometimes I get so excited about what we are yet to discover in this wonderous world. Song sung by Gwen Stefani sums it up: To step out of the "box" and imagine what we might be it is fantastic to be alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Once in a while I sit back
And think about the planet
Most of the time I trip on it
To kick back and think about
How massive it all is
And how many others are on it
I often think about the world
In which I live today, of
animals and plants
And nature's gift set on display
But the most amazing thing
That I've seen in my time
Are all the different people
And all their different minds
And different ways
It would take a lifetime to explain
Not one's exactly the same
