Trust the Journey
An Open Letter to the Girl who is feeling Hopeless
We regret the things we never tried to do.

You’ve got big dreams and goals in you.
You want to make your own name big, as high the skyscrapers that you’ve seen.
You want to become someone, you want to become a legend.
But there comes a time where you feel nothing is happening.
You feel that you are not moving forward, you’re still at the place you were since the very beginning.
You begin to doubt yourself, you begin to question your capabilities.
You begin to lose your self-confidence, you begin to feel helpless and hopeless.
You begin to feel bad and give up with yourself.
But whenever you think of giving up there is always this small voice telling you not to give up.
Reminding you to keep going and believe that you’ll get through.
It may seem that the road you are taking leads to nowhere, but you just keep trying.
You always pray and ask God, why is this all happening to you?
‘’Why me Lord?’’
‘’Are you punishing me for everything I’ve done against your will?’’
Then, you’ve randomly heard one of His words, saying He gives the toughest battles to His strongest soldiers.
You realized that you are not stagnant at all, there was a little progress too little for you to notice.
You felt honored, instead of all people you’ve been chosen as one of the strongest soldiers trusted that you’ll overcome and victor over the battle of life.
You regret questioning Him for everything you’ve been and experiencing without understanding.
The path you are taking is never easy and there will always a time that you’ll think of giving up.
Well, that is unavoidable but always remember that you are not alone.
You will always have Him with you, and He will never leave you alone.
He will give you strength, hope, love and most of all victory.
All you must do is to trust your journey.
You are not in this place if you are destined for something legendary and someday you’ll look back and tell yourself ‘’good thing you never give up, you kept going and now you are a victorious survivor’’.

I recently had a world-wind and whirlwind vacation overseas traveling throughout Europe.
I fell in love with the architecture, culture and people's attitude regarding work and life.
After working in the NYC rat race for 20 plus years, I'm ready for a change and am open to where I land. I'm done with a need to climb the corporate ladder and instead focus on living life while being able to support myself.
Is there any easier EU passport to obtain as I've had ancestors from all different countries on both sides of my family tree. Instead of trying for a work visa, I'm hoping if I can obtain EU citizenship that would make it easier to work abroad. I'd appreciate your advice!

My manager, the second one I’ve had in my 2 years in this position, is leaving.
Ok, so my organization is great- great people, work-life balance, benefits, etc. However, since I’ve been there (will be 2 years in November), both of my managers i had have/are going to leave for really great opportunities outside of our org. While I’m super happy for them, i am concerned about how it’ll potentially impact my career growth. I’d still be doing the same work just reporting to new people, which may change as they hire on a replacement. Which is annoying to start the manager/employee relationship all over again.
My manager is leaving in a few weeks and is invested in making sure there’s a plan in place for who i report to when they’re gone. I guess my question is what would you ask them/consider during this transition phase? I was hoping to start the “it’s been 2 years, I’d like a raise or at least something to help with inflation” conversation but I hate doing this, it’s always so awkward. At the same time, it may be best to get the ball rolling on that to see what can be done prior to my manager leaving?
any advice is welcome, thank you :)

Hi all - ok this is a first.
The new boss, promoted from within, and I are a bad fit, to put it mildly. I put in my two weeks’ notice, and she replied that I could leave tomorrow.
Here’s the twist: I WANT to stay for two weeks, to put files in order, to coordinate with co-workers the processes for future events, and to finish setting up a Dropbox account for my department. Most of all, I work in a retirement community, and want to ease these beloved residents into the knowledge that their trusted friend is leaving them in good hands. They just lost the last ED without notice and took it badly.
This new boss rules with a cudgel. She starts all discussions with No you can’t do that. She changes my plans on ginned-up reasons (e.g. she canceled my bus trip due to “insurance changes” which had nothing to do with the trip). She lays down the law, and when advised of an error, she doubles down and tries to blame the victim of her error. She refers to staff members as “bodies,” and cares for the residents based on the level of their rent checks. I can’t get away from her fast enough.
Still, I have a good plan for leaving, and as you can tell from the above description of her, any discussion is going to go badly.
any and all advice is much appreciated!
