I was speaking with someone last night who made some observations that really hurt to hear. But then after a bit I realized they were right. I have improved quite a bit in my life this past year but it’s time to take the final leap and get a full time job and quit drinking. I have a part time low wage gig for now which is good compared to last year’s being unemployed and afraid to leave my apartment. But in my off hours I often drink and succumb to depression. Sometimes it takes a friend to just be up front about things to wake one up, so to speak. So today I feel a bit rejuvenated. I was up at 7 and got to work on my cover letter and am applying for jobs. I want my life back. No easy feat in this economy but I will find a way. I can’t wait to be ready anymore, I am just going to make it happen.
