Sign of the times ...

So ... You know I joined a new group last month, right?

The ranks of the unemployed.

Well, I also figured out that it's not the worst thing in the world.

It may even turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

I went through it for a very, very long time. No, it wasn't the worst thing in the world . . . the only thing I missed was the money. And it was definitely a blessing in disguise, because I got to spend some key years in my daughters' lives being home to see them every day, to attend to their bake sales, to volunteer for school events, etc. It can be highly frustrating to deal with the endless rejection as you try to get back into the workforce, so just remember it's never personal.

Thank you, Carl. That it's never personal is something I will struggle with for sure. More and more these days, especially as social media becomes part of the economic landscape, it certainly does seem personal.

I'm so sorry Siobhan. The only thing I can say is that from what I've read and seen these years through your blog, you're incredibly talented and I bet employers will see that, too.

Mary and Greg are two of my very favorite people. I hope to see you doing even more work with them.

Thanks, Jess. I'm hoping to do more with them, too.
