Job Search

Sunday, June 20, 2010

My job search starts in earnest bright and early tomorrow morning. I am excited and scared at the same time.

I'm excited because I see it as a new beginning - a new adventure. I'm scared because the economy is still bad, my interviewing skills are not that great, and my self-esteem still needs to be worked on.

I will take one day at a time and try to contact as many companies as I can each and every weekday. Please don't let me lose my motivation!

Great Night

Sunday, June 20, 2010

I went out with family layst night to a patio restaurant-bar to hear a family member's band play. This was the first time in a LONG time that I went out, let alone with family members. I had a great time just people-watching and listening to the music.

When I got home, I was tired and went straight to bed. I slept for 8 hours! I don't remember the last time I got that many hours of sleep. I know it's been over a year.

I feel so motivated just by getting the sleep I needed. I believe I made the right decision on leaving my verbally abusive husband and coming up to be with family. I think now I can concentrate on getting over my depression and getting off my medications I am on. I know it will take a little time, but I am so excited about the possibilities.

  


New Walking Journey

Saturday, June 19, 2010

Today was my first day walking in Michigan. It seemed odd to not have the hills, but I did love the sidewalks. And the fact that dogs are kept in their yards certainly was nice. I judged the distance by my pace and the time. I will have to see what it actually was when I get in the van and count the miles.

I know that I will probably change my path a few times. But I am looking forward to the challenge of finding the right path for me.

  


I Made It

Saturday, June 19, 2010

I made it to Michigan! I am so wound up and tired at the same time. I couldn't fall asleep and woke up after three hours. Hopefully, I will catch up tonight. I still have to unpack the van, but that will happen when the sun comes up.

My husband gave me and my mother his usual sob story. My mother fell for it; I've heard it a few too many times. Only a lot of counseling and major lifestyle changes can make a difference now.

One thing I did accomplish with my husband: it finally dawned on him that I was depressed from sitting at home by myself with no money and no vehicle. It only took him 5 years of me telling him and my leaving for him to realize things weren't right. Too little too late.

I've got three job interviews set up for Monday. I've got my fingers crossed. I do have a list of employment agencies as a back-up. Mom thought I came up without a plan. Noooo!

I'm feeling determined and scared at the same time. But I'll take one day at a time and see what adventure lies ahead for me.
