We don’t have any roses in our yard yet, but if I happen to plant any in the upcoming months, I’ll be sure the spend a bit of time smelling them every day. That’s just a bit of a round-about way of saying that I’ve got some extra time on my hands as of last week. I’ve unfortunately found myself without one of those “J O B” thing-a-ma-jigs to carry myself away from home at 8am and return at 5pm, and while I know I’m not lonely in my predicament, it’s still not a fun place to be.
I heard a recent acquaintance speak about how she handled a recent layoff situation, and that she treated her unemployment as a full-time job. I plan to do just that, giving myself an intense schedule day in and day out just to keep the buttons firing. I know there are only so many applications to push out the door each day, but I can take some good time to devote to creative “work” as well. There’s always so many things that “could” be done that don’t get done… so hopefully I’ll carve out some time to commit to those wants.
So while I thought March was a good month to start anew, it looks like I’ll be rewinding and trying to make April my lucky month. And I do want to say that I share this only because I greatly appreciate honesty in the blog world, and I’m touched when others share and I know this is my chance to be real with people that make me smile every day by simply making my blog ticker click up.
