I feel suprisingly encouraged

So it has been a bit of a rough go.

Unemployment and unknown future -

they are hard for me to deal with at times.

Sometimes "at times" feels like "all the time."

However,

I have learned something again today,

even in the past hour of today.

First, people care about me.

Just wanted to mention the obvious that I sometimes forget.

Thank you to those in the blog world

who also remind me of this

on a regular basis.

Second, I just did a cover letter and job application.

I submitted it.

Whew.

And you know what?


I really learned a lot in my last job.
It was a rough go and losing it was really painful.
But as I was writing my experiences
for an online form,
I remembered what I did
and how I loved it.
Stressful sometimes, but on the other hand,
I really loved everything I did.
I love being a librarian.
I would really like to be a librarian again.

I agree, being able to clarify your thoughts is a huge part of this process, as painful as it is.
