I am having difficulties in my job search. I messed up an interview and didn't get a job that looked ideal-good money, interesting people, semi-interesting work (except for the 1.5 hr commute each way combined w/my 7 mo old daughter). Did I mess up my life by not getting that?
I have been out of work for almost 2 years and am worried that I am not going to get a good job at a good pay rate. Please help.

Answer from God through Carley:

"Why do you think that you messed-up the interview?

The situations you find yourselves in now are certainly different than the circumstances of recent past times.  It would make sense that you change what you've been doing in present times, but do you think that a 1.5 hour commute each way is the thing to change?

Whenever you find yourself in a repetitive struggle, step back from your situation and re-examine it.  What do you do repetitively that isn't bringing the results you seek?  Define what it is that you really need.  Examine what is most important to you and to those that depend upon you.  When you ask me for help please know that you will always have it, but it is you who must take action.  If a specific thing that you think might be the best thing for you doesn't happen, try to keep an open mind about it.  Perhaps the best thing is just around the corner and you haven't even thought of it yet."
