The job I ended up with just happens to be the one I have wanted to land in for the last 9 years and due to a retirement was already in the works for me to train in, but it was very uncertain if anyone else would bump me for it

These were all personal areas for myself that I wanted to grow and I am so thankful that I have! When I think of looking at my ‘reverse gap,’ it is hard not to feel happy about what improvements have happened. I find I have no reason to get caught up feeling not good enough comparing to others when I just compare to my past self. Then think back 2 years, then 5 and 10. Some of these things happened that I hadn’t expected. A year ago, I didn’t know I was going to get the job I wanted. A year ago, if I thought about an exercise program, I wouldn’t have considered committing to more than 6 weeks of working out.

Before, I have felt too afraid to be judged but now I am coming to a point that I will embrace my flaws and allow room for judgement so that I may improve in my work. All in all, I truly believe the strongest asset in having a positive digital footprint and professional personal brand is actually being a genuinely good person in real life. Right now, I’m far from being well known in the digital world but my family, friends, co-workers, acquaintances, etc. all know the kind of person I truly am. I’ve always been known to be a down-to-earth, genuine, and kind person to every person I surround myself with which has been a strong asset for me in the digital world.

When I do good in one area, I want to keep that momentum going and consequently fall short in another

When I am on a roll with writing, I neglect my family. When I spend time with my family, I worry that I didn’t do enough to find a job. At the end of one task, I will try to do another and seemingly lack the energy and focus I want. The wheels in my head start turning and by the end of the day, I feel like nothing was accomplished.

I believe I’m designed to be an integral piece of how progressive organizations create a supportive and encouraging environment. I want to specialize in seeing a higher power collective where everyone experiences purpose, empowerment, and community. I want to provide my unique skills in organization, coordination, and interpersonal communication to connect individuals with each other and the organization.

Unemployment has saved my ass this last year and a half. It’s made it possible to keep working on writing and music and pay the bills. I’ve been lucky, because it supplements gigs and record and book sales and tea towels and t-shirts I’ve printed and sold. I’m always hustling but unemployment made the hustle more benign, less stressful.

In the day of my dreams I will be retired

Keywords: cabininthewoods , Dayofmydreams , isolation journals, Journal writing , Reflections

I want to retire. I am ready now to retire, but not sure how to go about it. Maybe one more year of teaching and occasional performances, and then I’ll decide on a new adventure. Gradual retirement will not work for me — too many exciting opportunities are available, and I can’t see to let them go by without accepting the challenge. I have tried to semi-retire, but within a few months my schedule was full again.
