First, I wanted to wish you a Happy Memorial Day! I’ve been thinking a lot about gratitude this week—gratitude towards the men and women who served our country and gratitude to have the freedom of choice.
Career transition can cause a lot of anxiety, yet we often forget that it is a privilege to live in a country that allows for career transition.
I remember spending seven months working in India after college and many people had no occupational choice because of their birth status. If someone was born as a commoner, peasant or servant, there was very little chance of moving up in society.
I don’t want to negate anyone’s anxiety or frustration around life transition whether it be professional or personal, I just want to provide a small reminder of how lucky we are to have these dilemmas opposed to fearing for our safety or other basic needs.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday with friends, family and loved ones. If you served our country, thank you. Once again, happy Memorial Day!
