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.
