Being unemployed is nice some days, not so nice others... the weeks are running together - I feel stressed out, bored and useless these days. I really need a job - but, since I'm selling the house and should be living elsewhere, it's making it difficult to really hard core job search. I can't see me getting a great job I love and then leaving in a month or two. This frazzles me. On the other hand if I go for temp jobs and don't get continuous work until I leave, I lose my unemployment benefits which are vital right now b/c it's a ROUGH market out there. This economy is horrible. (I know - tell you something you didn't know..LOL)
All these weeks off have given me a lot of time to think about my life, etc. I'm happy for the most part, but really never thought I would do what I do for a living (Exec. Admin. Assistant) and always be struggling to make ends meet - I think I need a new career. But, where do I start? How do I know what I would love? How do I figure it out and how do I find it? I feel horrible that I'm 40 years old and STILL don't know what I want to be when I grow up... It really makes me feel crappy about myself.
HMMPH - Stress - stress - stress! More to think about!
Have a great week!
