It Can’t Rain Forever...
As I write this closer, it's pouring rain outside.
Been raining all day.
Job Hunts are like the rainy, gloomy days of life.
Sometimes they really suck.
They can be filled with scary loud thunder, lightning strikes, or even a tornado.
You might be in one of these storms right now.
It's awful, especially if it's a really bad storm.
One of the pieces of inspiration I drew from my last job hunt was a song by music group Daughtry called "Backbone"
When you're hurting deep down
When you're feelin' like you're never gonna dig your way out
Never gonna dig your way out
Keep pushing up the river
Keep mining for the silver
'Til you strike gold
Gotta whether the storm
'Cause it can't rain forever, no
I'm telling you
We all fall on hard times, you know
Each day is a hard climb, you know
Some days your body has to carry on
So you gotta show a little backbone...
It can't rain forever.
Keep pushing on your job hunt.
I believe in you, and I know you have the Backbone to get through this.
The best part is you don't have to do it alone.
