STRUGGLE FOR NEW IDENTITY : SEATTLE DIARIES
It is not easy for anyone to get settled in life. Being an Assistant Professor with a MBA, I thought once I have achieved what I meant to be but the story doesn't end here.
It was a dream come true when we shifted from India to Seattle. Full of excitement and energy I was ready for starting a new journey at a new place. My maternal uncle who is even more than father to me did endless effort for us to bring us to US.
New place, new life and was looking for a new career. After few days staying at home I started looking for jobs. Indeed, monster and many more job search portals were my first tools. Being well educated I thought it would be an easy task but no response left me outdistanced. There was a point in my life that I thought I couldn’t do anything. I thought I was useless at everything. But then I realized that’s not the way it is. I got rid of my self-limiting beliefs. It’s interesting when I reflect back on where I started, then where I want to be.Finally wait was over and I got 2 jobs both as Sales Associates at reputed retail stores. This was not exactly what I was looking for but I have to start somewhere to make my identity…..All I need is belief in my abilities. I know I did best and I can do my best. Lets see how i make my identity in new place and when ? it just reminds me of something that i read once “Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.”
