This week’s photo challenge is to post a self-portrait.  I’m not one to post pictures of myself online (except on Facebook) as I really would much rather be the anonymous 30-something sometimes whiner that I am.  So I’ll post a picture of my work desk in the Philippines.  It was at a job where I felt the most comfortable in my skin.  It was at a place where everyone worked hard because they believed in something and they believed that by working together, they would achieve something great.

I miss the feeling of camaraderie.  I miss being respected for who I am and not simply for what I can do so someone else can claim the glory of work well done.  I miss my personal space being respected.  I miss working in an environment where profanity is not something that one hears every other sentence.  I miss being able to work in a quietly productive environment and my need for quiet being respected.

Obviously I don’t work there right now.  But I believe that soon I will find the job that fits me.  God will take me to it.
