Feb 05, 2017 the art of letting go
I have interviewed close to 50 people in the past two weeks. People from all across the globe! I am gearing up for more interviews and starting some round 2 interviews. I thought you might be curious to know a few questions we ask during the interviews. To give you insight and to let yourself answer the questions we may not get to ask you ourselves. So, here are 3 examples.
What is your biggest fear in taking this position?
Name two of the toughest decisions that you have had to make in your work/personal life and what the result was?
Why should I not hire you?
I have started to box up our home. Taking our lives down from the shelves in preparation for putting the “for sale” sign up.
What will I think on my last day here and my first day gone?
It is such an easier choice to stay.
I am learning about the art of letting go.
Letting go of the material, the bits and pieces.The dining table that regularly held us at meal times. A nursery that each of my kids slept in as babies-those long nights staring out that bedroom window- mother and child silhouetted there in the dark. So that I can learn to find our comfort wherever we are together.
Sometimes life isn’t about becoming something or someone. It’s about unbecoming the you that came about from experiences that shaped you in the wrong ways. The art of letting go of all the things you don’t want to be.
I want to let go of…
my ideas relating to what my culture says is the mainstream family
Ownership of things and gain an ownership of self
I want to learn how to live life in the raw, so that I can grow wings and let the wind cultivate me into a worthy being.
