Iwell started off the year unemployed. Found a job but then my roommates decided to downsize and asked me to move out.  Found a side gig to help me make ends meet but it wipes me out. Looking forward to a trip to Alaska and everyone around me is so negative about me going and enjoying myself except a few. I haven’t had a real vacation in over 12 years and these people just can’t stand it that I might actually have some fun and have something positive to talk and laugh about.  

I am moving in with my oldest son for 12 months only. This gives me time to hopefully find a great job I love doing and pays me well enough to be able to support myself. I pray God brings the right people into my life that help me find that awesome job.  I have to keep moving forward.  Occasionally It all still gets overwhelming and I need to throw a pity party  and then climb back up on my horse and move forward. I just pray things continue to improve. I see people who are struggling all around me and I wonder how they put on a smile and joke around.
