Yikes! I just read the doom and gloom of my last post. It seems that I have fallen victim to what I have railed about in the past...negativity. So close to the end of my preverbial rope was I, that I allowed it to spill forth onto the page. I'm reminded of the "don't drink and dial" scene from the motion picture sideways. But, like that guy, I needed a crazy friend to help me see lifes lighter side and that no matter what, life goes on! I have resisted with all my might returning to the "Rat Race" by staying self-employed for the last three years. "Hoping" for change in the current mortgage-related climate has clearly not been enough and so, in addition to having some luck here at the beginning of March, I decided to create some by seeking out old contacts and rconnecting with associates that have landed in new gigs and are getting back on their feet too. This tactic has brought excellent results. One office reconnection landed me two out-of-county signings in the first two days and I have seen work each and every weekday and a few weekend days this month.
Time to put my positive hat back on and realize: The time when I am truly happiest, is when work is abundant. Why? Because I am able to provide for my loved ones and create ease in my own life. While I've avoided that rat-race and stayed self-employed, I'm still able to make it happen...and so, I shall.
Keep your chins up out there!
