Getting back into the workforce after divorce can be frightening. Suddenly you are single and may need to support yourself. Most of my marriage I was a stay at home mom. I did lots of volunteer work and my ex-husband and I started 2 companies, but, when I went to write a resume, there was no one I could list for a recommendation. Or you may have worked but, need a better paying job. Have faith and believe in yourself. You can small steps to find that ideal job.
Marianne Williamson, in her book, “A Return to Love” writes:
“God, please use me” is the most powerful affirmation we can say for an abundant career. It is the miracle worker’s prayer. Everybody wants a great job. Accept that it’s already been given to you. The fact that you’re alive means a function has been assigned to you: open your heart to everyone and everything. That way you’re a vessel of God.
Of course, the ideal career may not happen overnight. You may have several jobs until you arrive at the career you love. The important thing is to believe in yourself and begin to take steps toward your path. Start creating a vision of your ideal career. Begin to do research on it. Are there some on-line classes or night classes you can take to improve your skills?
Five Questions to help you create a vision:
1. What would you like to be doing five years from now?
2. What part of that could you begin doing now?
3. How do you need to plan and prepare so you can be in that role in five years?
4. What would you say are your best strengths?
5. What type of work would you do even if you were not paid?
These questions may take you time to answer. The important point is to have faith in yourself and keep that vision alive.
