I Need An Attitude Adjustment

Sunday, August 08, 2010

There hasn't been much to do lately or anyone to do it with. I've been applying to companies right and left and can't get past a phone or first interview. I guess I need to hone my interviewing skills with someone. I'm trying so very hard to fight the depression setting in, but it has seemed harder the last few days. I guess it's good I go to my psychiatrist on Tuesday.

    Never never never never give up! (one of my favorite's from Churchill) You CAN do this! Remember that Father is truly your source ... not just for salvation, but for protection and provision and purpose as well. He's got the perfect job for you and I know He'll bring you to it at the perfect time. Trust Him!

    I can understand your discouragement. However, chin up and no giving up! You Can and WILL find a great job. The market is tough, but in His perfecting timing you will find something that meets your needs.

    Things are rough in the job world right now. Try to keep your Spirits up and keep looking for others who can help you. I always feel better after I meet with my therapist. Don't forget to get a little movement in as that often helps clear away the cobwebs. We are here for you, just a click away. emoticon

    Summer is tough because the world seems to slow down, but you don't have that luxury! Keep trying. Don't give up, no matter what. Hang in there! You will get there!

Accomplishing Some of My Goals

Thursday, August 05, 2010

I have been good about making a list each day of the things that I want to accomplish the next day. So far, I have been able to mark off most, if not all, of what I have written within two days. That makes me feel like I have accomplished things.

I do feel like I haven't been exercising as much this week because of appointments I had. To compensate for this, I try to spend at least a half hour each day doing some heavy cleaning around the place.

If my daughter wasn't so busy, I would be able to get more done. Most of the work to be done is organizing her closet and all her make-up. But when you have two jobs and Epstein-Barr Syndrome, it's hard to find time to do even a little bit. She hasn't gotten much sleep lately, and the Epstein-Barr is starting to act up. She'll get colds easily with this. If she's not careful, it goes into bronchitis or something worse.

I try very hard to help her around the house. But, trying to find a job and trying to sell Avon has taken up a lot of my time lately. Something has to give!


Better Attitude

Monday, August 02, 2010

I got a few things accomplished that I had been putting off last night. I got a good night sleep, did my exercises, took a long walk and read my emails already this morning. I've got my day pretty much planned.

Needless to say, I have a better attitude today than I did yesterday. I just hope my attitude doesn't take a nose-dive this afternoon like it did yesterday.

    Glad to hear you had a good night of sleep. Now's the time for you to take control of your attitude. Choose to have a good day. You CAN do that!
Have a great day!!!!

Discouraged and a Little Lonely

Sunday, August 01, 2010

I'm having one of those days where I'm feeling a little discouraged about my lack of employment. I have no idea how many applications I have filled out. Granted, I've had interviews, job yet.

I have called DH quite a few times about needing money for my doctor visits and other bills. He only tells me that he'll see what he can do. In other words, he doesn't have any intention of sending me any.

I have been keeping fairly busy. But today was a little slow and lonely. I still don't have a friend that I can just hang out with. I'm sure that if I get a job and settle on a church, my friendship circle will grow. But, that doesn't help the here and now.

I'm confident that a good night sleep will help my mood and my sore back. At least, I'm trying to convince myself of this.

You're definitely not alone because that is how I feel. I am trying to find some community events or organizations that I can join to meet people. It's so hard - but I guess we can't give up. That means they won.

    Maybe you have the cart ahead of the horse in the friend part. You can find a friend and a good church before you find a job and they can help you to pray for the job. Remember where two or three agree as touching any one thing it shall be done.
So my advice to you is to keep looking for the job God has for you and in the meantime find a church.
Join small groups in the church like a Sunday School class where you can get to know people better. You will find a friend. In the meantime Jesus is a friend who sticketh closer than a brother.

    Patty - it is important to find a circle of friends. I pray that you will soon find a group to be part of, both at church and at work. Keep your eyes on your source - your heavenly Father.

Still Making Headway

Thursday, July 29, 2010

I am still in the process of making goals for myself and trying to find things to do...places to go...and people to meet. I have my daily to-do lists now. And I'm finding that I am getting a lot of them done. The ones I don't get done, I suspect are things I just don't want to do.

I'm more at peace with my relationship with my husband. I've figured us both out more. There was a lot of soul-searching in that one, but I know what needs to be done.

It's so nice to get up and go do what I want to do, when I want to do it! Visiting with family is something I really missed and am glad that I can do again.

There are still trials and tribulations - mostly over the lack of money. But eventually, something has to turn up! (At least I sometimes have hope!)
