Oh happy day:

This year has had its fair share of ups and downs. But this month things are certainly looking up. I have been out of work for a year and 3 months. I would apply for jobs just for them to tell me I’m overqualified or they were not hiring at the time. It got very discouraging and I would often hear people stating that people on unemployment are lazy and not looking for work. Well, I will say this, I was not one of them. I don’t like sitting at home with anything to do. I have goals and things that I want to do and that takes money. I’m happy to say that I got a job this week and I start on Monday. I had to learn in this time that I asked God to give me a job that I can grow at. A job that cares about its employees and something close to home. God gave me that and more. I just had to be patient when all the doors around me were closing. Not every door is meant to go through and I was blessed that God never let us go without. If you know anything about living off of one income it can be tough. I’m truly grateful for my husband and him being the main provider during this time. I haven’t been on unemployment in like 15 years and I was only on it for a month. It can be a lot and people don’t understand that because they are not on the other side of the situation. All I have to say is that I’m glad that God answered my prayers. We have never been in a pandemic like this before and before people start judging one another please take a walk in someone else’s shoes.

  1. Hi Colleen 🙂

    Congratulations! 😀

    That said, I am not a huge fan of “employment” as an economic model (some people even refer to it as “wage slavery”). In economics, money is viewed as a *unit of exchange* (in other words, it has no meaning … sort of like “inch” doesn’t mean anything without a number to say *how many* inches). In the case of money, it means some abstract thing to account for exchanges we engage in.

    Whatever — what got me started on this is the way you said you need money. The sounds very un-independent (in other words: dependent).

    That’s it.

    I’m happy you’re happy!

    🙂 Norbert
