Life is not going quite going the way I want it to at the moment. When I left the military in the summer, I had this impression of how things would be with a fantastic new job and a life in the city. Well, the fantastic new job is proving more elusive than I expected and, after nearly four months of looking, I’m starting to get a little down about it.
At this point, I have to remember to be grateful for all the positive things I have in my life. I am working in a interesting, challenging job (just not the one I want!). I have a roof over my head – well, more than that, I have a lovely home. I have loving, supportive family and friends. And I’m healthy. That’s quite a lot to be thankful for!
Anyone who has experience tough times will know that all of those things don’t necessarily stop you feeling a bit rubbish sometimes. But all I can do right now is keep working hard and have a little bit of faith that things will work themselves and that it is going to be okay. Maybe not any time soon, but it is going to be okay. Right?
