It was great to see everyone at 18-30's & I thought I'd bear my heart at the moment. This was a vision which I've been unable to shift this from my head, so I thought I'd share it:
"I felt adrift, like an ancient mariner caught in the middle of the ocean with no wind or compass to get to land & out of trouble."
I beleive this feeling has come from not being able to find a youthwork position which I have been able to fill, even after getting a degree & youthwork qualification & being experienced for many years working with young people etc. etc.
However, the positive form this is that people are really rallying round for me - I've now started applying for more vacancies in youthwork & am not limiting myself to any particular geographical location - in fact I completed an application form last night for Leicester, & for an eccumenical organisation - all based on a recommendation from a former classmate.
I now feel that with a little direction, this lost man might finally find the shore, but please pray that I can finally get there!
