I’m a pretty spiritual person and do believe that God has a plan for everything and that He is entirely in control. Of course, that’s hard to see when bad things happen but you have to have faith and know that another door will open. This website: Cards of Change is awesome.
It’s purpose is to create a new job hunting type of website (like monster.com or careerbuilder.com) but really has become a place for art and humor. People who have been laid off (see Dear Economy) are encouraged to upload a picture of their old business card with their up-to-date email address and something positive that has come out of being laid off. Once the card is visible online, the link can be shared via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Digg, Reddit and other social networking sites. The idea is that someone who has an available website will find it and hopefully you’ll become employed again! While there hasn’t been any record of someone getting a job from the site I just love the idea behind it all. It entirely translates into life as a whole and not just in dealing with this stooopid economy. It’s so important to remind yourself of positive things in your life, especially when you’re down in the dumps. After something bad happens, always think about something good that came from it and write it down! What a great website!
