A dose of a UAEian

I'm short, love reading and I'm very curious...quiet & talkative when I'm around people I'm used to. Love massages, relaxation, spas, name it! This blog is mainly to note down anything that is significant to me

You may not know who you are… but you have made a difference in my life.

You were probably that stranger on the street that gave me a kind word, or a random person online that gave me the much needed comfort I was seeking. You were probably in a group when I needed to be surrounded.
You are probably now a good friend of mine, a colleague, an acquaintance or you are a person I’ve never even met - yet.

You were just what I needed at that point in my life.

You probably don’t know how you’ve made a difference, you probably don’t even know me, or even remember me but I do.
And I am forever grateful our paths have crossed before, and maybe they would cross again sometime in the future, maybe this time for me to make a difference in your life, or maybe for you to influence mine once again.

Thank you.

Life is too short not to love your job...right?

Right. I'm bored of my job. Tired of it... the more the days pass, the more I'm convinced that I need to change my job. ASAP. When I think of tomorrow, I dread going to work. I have the typical 9to5 job...I don't know how or when such strong dislike of my work has emerged...I'm surprised at myself!

...and I am confused. So if I don't like this job then what DO I like? I'm looking into myself to see what exactly is it that I want to do. I'm even thinking of a career change but everything is so vague at the moment.

Looking back though, I knew it. I knew while I was in college that majoring in accounts wasn't what I really liked.. and I just went ahead with it. Now nearly after 4 years in the field I want out - or I want different. Whatever it is I want a change for now. What scares me is that what if I get something worse than what I have now. What if my current job is better than the next one?

I know the only way of finding out is to try.

Apparently there are many out there like me.. all you need to do is google 'changing careers' and read their experiences. There's a lot of tips online, and guidance but they all say the same thing. A thorough self-assessment needs to be done about what I want instead. It isn't easy but it's definitely possible.
