About five years ago earlier this month, I went on Bahá’í pilgrimage to Haifa.
It is funny how in that post I wrote about the experience my expectation of some significant change. Even that post stated, “Something like serving at the Bahá’í World Center would be the kind of change I foresee,” which clearly states where my head was looking at the time. I think at the time I was terrified of where things were headed at work and very much tempted to flee a sinking ship. Many of our top talent at the time were. Anyway, I did apply for a job, but after the interview felt a crushing feeling it was not the right move for me so I withdrew. I am at a loss to figure out what changed.
Did not enter a relationship.
At the same employer. New job.
If anything, then the one big change is drifting from faith.
I still think about the statement I was told by some strangers that I ought to be an educator instead of wasting my potential working in IT.
