I’ve been unemployed for six days now and I’ve spent the majority of those days wondering aimlessly through out my house doing laundry and taking antibiotics to get rid of the massive sinus infection that I have. (Try not to be jealous my life is GLAMOROUS).
I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what I want to do, but every time I broach that subject my brain kinda shuts down a little, like it changes the station and there’s nothing but static up there, I keep asking it questions and all I get is some kind of emergency feed back loop.
Yesterday I had a job interview. Today I can’t seem to do anything more than play Words With Friends and doodle. I’m wondering if this is a downward trajectory where 4 days from now I’m laying in the fetal position, drinking gin through a straw on the floor of my shower or if it’s some kind of yo-yo and tomorrow I’ll actually fold the laundry and type up a list of references.
I kind of hope its the later but the former does take a lot of pressure off me to accomplish anything, just once I would like someone to utter the words, “Becca… she insisted on getting out of bed today.”

Becca, as Christopher Robin said to Pooh “Promise me you will always remember: You are braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” It seems hard now, but tomorrow is a new day and gin never tastes good in the morning (even mixed with OJ and consumed through a straw).
Take this time to rest. Reinventing yourself and figuring out what you want to be when you gro up takes work and brain power.
I am around if you need a walk, talk or a glass of wine!
Thank you Sue
