I’m happy to be a Cancerian today! I’m totally diggin’ my horoscope for Saturday, December 7th.
I don’t know if it’s fair to call blogging a Dream Career…in my mind, a “dream career” is something you’ve wanted to do for as long as you can remember.
I didn’t want to be a blogger back in the 80s, fer shure. It wasn’t even a “thing” back then.
I wanted to be a teacher!! And I became one. And it was nice. But the classroom doesn’t call to me anymore.
So……this dream career? Maybe I can still teach…through blogging. Maybe I will teach someone how to cook…or be crafty. Maybe I will teach someone how to put on makeup and be fabulous.
Maybe someday I will teach someone that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Well…that’s assuming I’m a strong enough woman to ride out this storm. It has been almost 10 months since Ron was laid off, and… damn. I thought life would be different by now. I thought maybe the stress would have let up a little by now.
I thought…maybe by NOW, I’d look back at THEN and think, “Pshew, we survived that bump in the road” instead of the occasional need to draw myself in and self-soothe with a good old-fashioned cry.
Which is stupid, because crying doesn’t solve anything.
Neither does reading horoscopes, but… I don’t know where I’d be without these little, positive affirmations. I know I won’t be standing around in 2014, thinking: WELL? Where’s my dream career success? My horoscope said, way back in December of last year, that I was going to be profitable and successful! What the hell?
I just know that this little affirmation was enough to inspire me to blog a little bit today, and probably tomorrow, too.
Some days, all it takes is a free Android app to keep me focused on working towards a better future.
