Your career luck this year is not very good. Try to do your work well. If you want to change the job, find it and know the new job well before quitting the current one. Your career luck will be somehow better than this year.

I don't normally comment on websites, but your questions and statements sparked my intuitive empathy into react mode. I instantly reached for a book I have that's never guided me wrong and has seemed to always match in synchronisity, called "Positive Quote for everyday." That being said, I felt directed to the date April 14th in which you commented and alas, it seems to me your answer has come to light. I somehow know, in one way or another that you'll agree, or you will see.

"Say Aaahhh, as we are continually faced by great opportunities, brilliantly disguised as insolvable problems." -Benjamin Franklin

Key phrases for you to be aware of within the rest of the page emphasis are:
Address health care crisis in community, come together, ideas for better systems, future generations, shifting ingenuity, volunteering in local nursing homes, aiding to elect a candidate you trust with this issue.

I hope you recognize this message meant for you. Some of the most amazing destinations in life, are reached through or thereafter, the most trying circumstances. Good luck Earth Dragon.

I forgot to mention today's quote in which I saw this. "TO live happily is an inward power of the soul." Marcus Aurelius
Our lives not perfect, need to be mindful of elements working now and then the rest. Bit by bit. What makes you happy? Maybe thankful for a good family or friends OR A CHALLENGING JOB WITH INTERESTING OPPORTUNITIES. Also what do you want to change if it could? Maybe getting fit. Walk each morning and noon, if unhappy with job think about the thing you truly love to do, be thankful for good things for more of them to happen and progress on the rest. That's all you need to do. Make progress toward your dream not an unfulfilling job.

I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to reply to that person. It may seem a small gesture, but i felt the empathy you so mentioned come through with your effort. To me, an Earth Dragon surrounded by completely opposite - and negative- energies for so long in life now, those smallest actions of effort,helpfulness and kindness are so greatly appreciated. Sadly, so very rare in my personal orbit but i am grateful to see them when and, for whomever i can. Just thank you. Earth Dragon 5/17/88
