I need to stop and regroup. But with so many things happening a 10000km/hr, I can't find the time to get the solitude I need to regroup and gather my thoughts.
I went for a career networking event by MINDEF. It made me want to try out and see whether I am cut out for it. However, I am wondering what is luring me into it- the idea of using whatever knowledge I got from history and political science and the interesting learning opportunities that it offers. It opened my eyes wide to the other possibilities that I could do after graduation and I am tempted.
However, I am hesitant. Is it me attempting to drown out the voice of God?
I was a little disappointed that I did not get the offer from MOE. So I thought it was a good thing I signed up for the MINDEF networking event. Then the day before the event, I got an email stating that I was offered a provisional teaching contract.
That's the problem with me. When I have too many choices, I don't know what to do. The MINDEF job is interesting but I only stand to gain. It appeals to me personally. However, I don't have a dream connected to the job. If I pass through the writing test and interview, I will like the job because it appeals to the intellect within me. But I don't share the dream that MINDEF has.
The dream to be an influence in the lives of students is something heartfelt but so loaded. Knowing myself, I will unconsciously be sucked into the world of trying to produce grades that I forget the dream that I want to be a role model and make an impact into the lives of the children.
So appeal to the self interest that I have or dare to dream big and take the risk of failure...
I think that is the thing- If I fail any stage of the interview, I know I'm not cut out for the job. If I fail to make an impact on the children, a sense of failure would be attached and I think that will destroy me more.
Finally, I found the crux of my problem... :/ Not a good dilemma though. Knowing me, I will just run and find a way out not to experience failure.
As long as you continue to be yourself, that's enough
