I don't know if I had told you openly I have been trying to gain permanent employment. I am struggling like the millions of others to find a place to work. At times, not having a job is disheartening.

I just got off the phone with a company I interviewed for, and they had said that I was exactly what they wanted. Then in the next sentence, they said that if I had inside sales, they would offer me the position. The hiring manager said that she'd give other potential employers a good reference if I'd let her. I said I would love that, and that if a position that comes available you'd think I was suited for give me a call. I told her I really love her company and felt thankful that they even considered me.

How does that make me feel?

I feel like a part of me is grieving because I am not one step closer to providing for my son and myself a life I want to give.

So. What can I do?

I can give myself a SparkGoodie. I'll have to look at the ones available and to see if one speaks out to me right where I am; instead of, me using poor coping skills and going on a binge.

So, I am going to go look for a SparkGoodie for myself. I know rewarding me with positive encouragement will allow me to take one step forward.
