I know that the majority of my posts are upbeat, pleasant, and possibly funny (depending on your sense of humor and if it’s really sharp…) but today I bring you a post that you might need a pint of ice cream after. And that’s okay, I think. I won’t judge.
Today, I’ve decided I’m going to wear my heart on my sleeve.
If you remember just a little while back, I mentioned that my most recent employer had to lay off some employees and unfortunately for me, I was one of them. Since then, I’ve been scanning countless job sites, trying to pump my friends, family and neighbors for information on any and all marketing job opps, and you know, all that other really fun stuff… But yesterday, I found out that I only have two weeks of unemployment left. Two weeks!
As if the pressure wasn’t on before, now it’s doubled in weight.
It’s one of those things that once you find out about, you can’t stop thinking about it. I keep wondering what I’m going to do. How I’m going to make some sort of bigger income. I mean, I love blogging and writing, but it doesn’t pay six figures 😉
In the meantime, everyone always asks me, “How’s the job hunt coming?” and I wish there was a better answer to that, but there has not been. I never had a hard time finding a job in the past, I don’t know what exactly is different this time that makes it so difficult but I’m beginning to panic and to be honest, I’m getting a little frustrated.
And although I want to be that uplifting and cheery blog that you read today, I also thought I owed you guys some realness and honesty today as well. Because if anyone can relate, it’s going to be you guys!
I’m hoping that with lots of effort and prayers to the man upstairs, I will find something soon and things will work out. Ultimately I know things will work out somehow but not knowing in the meantime is pretty hard.
And since I’m a big sap today, I also want to say that for those of you who keep coming back here and reading my posts time after time, you are awesome. You are even more awesome than you could ever know, and I am so thankful that you keep coming back even after a gloomy post like this. I promise I’ll do better next time 😉
