That's it, I'm done

I've been really feeling kind of down this week and I'm tired of it. I'm tired of worrying about money and I'm tired of thinking about how I have to find a job. I've been quiet and not myself and I don't like it. So I'm done. Starting right now things change. I'm going to do everything I can to find a job but I'm not going to worry and stress over it. I can only do what I can do. I can't make people hire me or like me or even get back to me. I'm going to keep track of the jobs I apply for, make follow up calls, do all that good stuff but I'm not going to stress over it. When I was listening to Eckhart Tolle talk about The New Earth, one thing he said was to set aside a time everyday (or whenever) to make future plans. Don't live in the future. Don't dwell on it constantly. Just set aside time to do it. That's what I'm going to do. I'll set aside 1 hour everyday to look for work, send out apps, follow up, etc. If I need more time I'll spend more time but I'm not going to freak out over it any other time.

The new attitude starts right here, right now.
