Enjoy the Season You’re In

I feel like I need a change. Career wise. Why aren’t we ever content with where we are? For whatever reason, I feel like where I am now is not enough or where I truly want to be. But then I hear God whisper to me,

Enjoy the season you’re in.

My husband asked me, “What makes you happy?” “What do you truly want to do?”

It’s a tough world out there. I have been applying for full-time jobs since October.  I have applied to hundreds of jobs and have gotten only four interviews,  three of which I was not offered a job–even when I was confident that I did fantastic.  For those of you in Higher Education/Academia, there are too many applicants and not enough positions.
