The Latest Part 1

Wow I haven’t blogged in a week.  My longest since starting this blog. So what’s been up?

Work: so my consulting gig hit a snag this week.  Ok not so much of a snag but how it is: inconsistent. Projects have been put on hold and no new ones came in.

So… I made ZERO money this week. Well, I knew this was not going to be the ultimate career move, but a holdover to stop/slow the bleeding somewhat until something better comes along.

So in the downtime I look for a job.  Sent some resumes out, networked some.  It’s a process.

And honestly, it’s a process that’s really wearing on me, not having a secure income is something I’m not used to.  My car lease is over at the end of the year and jumping into a new one may be difficult with no steady income.  And yes i CAN live without a car, but that’s an enormous step back for me, especially with Mona living on Long Island.

I need to get back into a mode of making enough money to save for retirement/vacations/a home/etc. I need to pay diem my credit card debt again, I’m back above $8k. Ugh. I need self control and reel it in, though I don’t recall it being a lot of expenses. I really need to get a handle on that fast.

I have to re-focus on a career move. Close on a deal that’s beneficial for me.

Mentally, I have to stop my Woe Is Me thought-cycle that I’ve been in lately. Enough of the Pity Party.

This one breakdown with my job has got me reeling: my self value, my confidence,  my place in the world.

Enough of that shit. It’s time to ROCK.

      1. It can. But you will get through it. Losing confidence is the hardest thing because it’s so hard to have the courage to try new things. But I believe you will succeed. It’s just a matter of when πŸ˜‰
