How GREAT it is to have your SPARK back!
You have been taking many steps toward preparing for your big leap into the world of academia and now you are reaping those rewards!
What I think some may overlook is that our days can ALWAYS have a purpose...! Sometimes we need to be creative and under conditions where resources are scarce and there are many barriers we can STILL find a purpose for ourselves.
The trick is to take a close, hard look at those factors which are under our control. Top of THAT list is always the choices we make regarding the quality of our food choices and our physical activity outlets. But there are always other areas in which we can exercise our control. Such as how much contact we have with others.
Getting out and "networking" is an essential strategy for letting it be known that you are looking for employment. One never knows when a friend of a friend of a friend may come to the rescue!
Exercising control over one's immediate home environment and de-cluttering, organizing, honing things so that your home more truly represents your interests and activities...this can also help to lend purpose to one's life.
On another thread someone mentioned volunteering...yet another choice that is often available!
Returning to school as Amy has...yet another choice!
Keep coming back to our message boards everyone and post your struggles...many hands make for lighter work! :-)
