Long Weekend

I took a trip and visited with family over the weekend. I forgot to bring my laptop so I couldn’t post.

Most of my family and friends(my age or older) have money. They do all the normal stuff like buy each other dinner, give people gifts, sleep indoors etc. It was hard going back to a life where I have to drive to my shower, drive to my food etc. I am really tired of it. I am too funtional to lay in the park all day but simple things like showering feel very difficult to me.

I am pretty motivated to get out of this rut. I hope I can do it. It is hard because my day is full of low paying activity that I can’t afford to quit doing right now. I don’t know how I’m going to transition into better paid work.

I met a couple of people this weekend who do property management and do very well in it. I MIGHT be able to get back into that…I’ve done a bit of it in the past but I hate being stuck in an office. One of them even hinted she might want to hire me (low paying though, I’m sure) but it’s not for me.

Ick. Everyone wants me to be a low paid worker for them How do I get someone to see me in a different light? Someone tell me the secret please!

Other than that little detail, I guess life is just fine. The sun is shining and it’s not too hot, not too cold.

Also, I’m going on another working trip this weekend. I am going to see a part of California I have never seen before and I will have time for sight-seeing and also might get to visit with a woman friend of mine who moved up there a couple of years ago. Life is good!

    I hope you find the job you’re looking for. Also it seems that you would like to find a permanent place to live. You can do this, just keep the faith. In the meantime try not to be hard on yourself. Just do the best you can. A lot of times it makes us feel bad when we compare ourselves with others who seem to have more than we have. I do it all the time also. Like when you were with your family and friends. But lots of times things are not as they seem. Everyone has their own problems, sometimes they’re dormant for a while but they happen to everyone The grass is always greener.. There are plenty of people who would envy your freedom. It’s all perspective. I like what you said at the end, life is good! Just keep enjoying the simple things like the weather and your sightseeing. There’s so many simple things we all take for granted and don’t appreciate. I know I’m guilty of that too. You’ll be fine. I wish you all the best and pray you achieve all the things you want in life.
