“In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.”
-Fred Rogers

  1. Well, since I’ve known myself, and I am 22 years old, I wanted to work.
    That is what my dad did, my mom was a housekeeper but stil, they inspired me.
    When I finished highscool the first thing I wanted to do was to work. I told my dad that I dont care where I want to work and that I wanted to start rightaway.
    He took me to his place of work ( he is a proffesional carpenter) and I started working as a wood sorting person or an disciple.
    That was my first job ever, after that I worked as a cashier in two places, then as a sales consultant and after that as a xerox operator.
    It wasn’t easy… every step of the way was hard but I managed to do it al: I worked, I studied and volunteer too.
    Today I am hired as a fresh food engineer at a brand new company in Romania.
    Was it hard? Of course it was! Did I stepped back? Never!
    Once you wish something and you want it from the bottom of your heart has to come true.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing about your personal experience. That was an inspirational story.
      Indeed it’s very hard & sometimes much more harder than anyone could realize. But with time, patience and persistence one can actually realize any dream.
      And worst case scenario, if you don’t get your wish, you will have the satisfaction knowing you did everything you could.

  2. One of the things that lowered my stress was having some sort of action every day. I’d start of my day by going on the various employment sites and even if I didn’t apply for any jobs I felt that I had done something to help my situation. It reduced my stress for the rest of the day…

  3. Another great post!! I actually bought a coloring book last year to ease the stress of being unemployed and to keep myself occupied. This of course I bought before I started my food blog…and to be honest it did help, I colored for hours..:)
