Today is considerably brighter mentally than the past few days. My appointment at Unemployment went considerably better than I thought it would. I was concerned that I would be pigeon holed for retail and I would get grief for submitting words instead of applications. SURPRISE! She actually sat down with me and went over things I can look at locally to get published. She had some really good ideas.
I find that I was dragging my feet because I figured such a drastic change in careers would be a big deal but she understood. So now I feel as though I need to get it REALLY together and make a constant effort to do this. Outside support makes a big difference to me. Family and friends you expect but people you don’t know who are making an effort to get you where you want to be… that support is huge.
The kids aren’t too happy since I am doing this after I got home. I had to push little Stella away a few times as well as Essie. I wasn’t gonna get up any earlier than I had to this morning. I am not a morning person!
I cannot tell you how good it feels to have the freedom to write! A burden has lifted. I can be my own person instead of who they think I should be!
I also got a very beautiful poem from someone on my writing page in response to a post there. That helped to top the day off in a positive way.
Later today I will go thru the photos I took on Saturday so I can share them on here. I may go out today because, honestly, the colors are much better today than this weekend. So hopefully either tonight or tomorrow I will have a lot to share via pictures.
I hope everyone has a great day!
