Yesterday I received my first pay cheque in 2 months. Almost exactly 2 months.
I had been out of work since the beginning of February and had been struggling looking for employment. The economy may be on its way up, but it is a very tight job market right now and there is fierce competition. And because of everything else that has been going on, I haven’t been in the right head space to truly focus on that career path.
Three weeks ago I ended up settling and taking a low level job that is nothing more than a means to an end and have been slaving away.
The work is unglamorous and difficult, but It feels good to be back contributing to society, even though I don’t truly respect the position or the work.
But getting that pay cheque yesterday has made me feel so much better. I am being recognized for my sacrifices. Even though it is meagre, I am being rewarded for my toiling, and it feels good.
Another step in the right direction.
