Today I attended a luncheon with 20 or so seniors. They were a lively bunch and very engaged in the world and each other. There was a couple there who are celebrating their 66th year of marriage today.
I have many years to live until I reach their age (God willing) and I can only wonder what those years will look like for me. Since the luncheon was in a corporate setting and the job search is ALWAYS on my mind, I wondered if when I am their age, how will I remember this time that I’ve been unemployed and the struggles that came along with this situation?
Even though finding a new job is taking forever, in the grand scheme of things, a life, this is a “blip” on my radar. I have to remember this when it seems like I will be unemployed forever.
I just called a recruiter in my field who may be able to help me with my search. I had to leave a message and am waiting for the return call.
With each new possibility, there is hope. And with hope, there is everything.
