Catching Up

This month has been filled with up's & down's since I became homeless, but I'm surviving. Today I finally got my ass in gear and applied to about 15 different positions that are full time and range between mental health & travel agencies, spreading between the Seacoast and Concord.

You know what's amazing about self-help & healing/therapy? When you connect to the goodness within you, you strive to be a better person... In particular I strive to be a better mom.

Swayed But Not Deterred

Today I received my rejection letter for a position I had applied for internally for the organization I have come to love. At first I cried... I couldn't help it. I thought I had sold myself so well, but yet I didn't get the job... what had I done wrong? Turns out, I did nothing [...]
