Hello my blogger friends...I know that this is a place where all is positive and inspiring. I have to be honest though, lately I have had some trouble in that department. Job hunting has not been easy...Revising my cover letter time after time to suit that particular position..applying for jobs that are much broader than I ever imagined...Not getting any response whatsoever..and it's getting harder to stay on track to find the light at the end of the tunnel. My posts have been few lately and I haven't had time to comment either, but I am still trying my best to keep it movin'. So, this is me, feelin' like I'm stuck...I have to keep reminding myself that I am very talented and I have so much to offer. Something great is out there and it's waiting for me. I just have to brush off the disappointment and keep my chin up...I am certainly not a quitter..I hope you guys won't give up on me either!

  1. I find that picture a very good metaphor of what you should do. Keep pushing, and eventually, you will break through.


  2. Hey Mimi,
    don't worry about it...everything comes to him who waits...all will work out ..it always does.You wait and see if I'm right.
    Keep calm and try not to stress...easy for me to say, I know but you will be fine.
    Keep your pecker up as we say in England and lots of love..we are all thinking of you. XXXX

  3. Hi Mimi,
    I'm Cassie, and I just found your blog and love it! This post in particular touched me because I am going through the same thing... I just graduated from college with an Architecture degree and have had no prospects or offers yet! But I know something will come and I am staying positive...we are creative people and companies would be lucky to have us! Keep the faith, and I will keep mine too!!
    Good luck!

  4. Mimi come on keep positive. your blog is so inspiring, do not doubt yourself for one second, you are great all things happen for a reason, even if we don't know it at the time?
    Your path is going on the right direction never give up as Eleanor Roosevelt said "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams" & you do I can see in your blog, a cloud always has a silver lining keep at it, Elaine :)

  5. Hang in there Mimi, good things will come to you I am sure of it, it must be the toughest time ever to be job-hunting, I can only sympathise. Stay strong and keep positive....

  6. I have tears in my eyes and such happiness in my heart...Thank you...all of you, for your support and kind words. I really needed all of it!
    I also know that I'm not alone and we will all get through this time. Looking forward to a bright future! Thanks for supporting me and my blog. This place is a way for me to dream about all the things I love so much.
    with love,

  7. Yeah it sucks. See no chin up crap from me. Peddling auto parts to greasy guys all day is so far from where I was in retail. I go home missing the conversation, the merchandise & star at my pumps & dresses but I remind myself its a paycheck, not permanenet & I can learn from it.
    I actually still do resumes & cover letters..had to use my English degree somehow. Email me with any questions. There are some great key phrases you may be missing. As for no response. Its deplorable but look at it from this angle. Would you want to work somewhere they have such tacky practices. Trust me that spills over into everything they do. Unfortunately tackiness seems to be thriving in this career market. Take heed, you are not alone. I myself had a major better end chain never call or send a letter after a second interview of an hour. Okay it was Talbots.
    When I was in Charleston on glorious King St there were empty antique stores & 2 closed down design stores including Elizabeth Stuart!! She's consolidating to one store in the burbs.
    You'll get there but its just going to take longer & I'll say it again..it sucks!!!!!!!!!!
