I Have Gone Gypsy

Hello everyone, it has been a very long time since I posted here. I thank you all for coming around to check on me and leaving such wonderful comments. (Except all the spam there seems to be.)

I am doing fine, and finally have started blogging again. However I am now on WordPress. You can find Me at Wandering Gypsy Spirit . I will leave my blogs up here on blogger, perhaps to revisit at some point.

I do need to get around and visit everyone, bear with me, I will get there sooner later.

A New Start, Thankfully

Finally, I have a new job, I start Monday!

I can’t count how many applications I have filled out.  My days seemed to drag as I made my way through what little work we had.  And the nights dedicated to the search for possibilities.  Luckily, I was able to spend a few  varied days, actually going around to visit potential employment opportunities, although to no avail.

I was actually getting a little worried.  Every potential employer was telling me the same thing.  Without current experience, as in at least a year within the last five years, they could not hire me.  Many offered schooling, but for a time frame and cost that simply didn’t fit my finances. 

With the economic situation, Things were looking pretty dim indeed.  Then Last weekend I filled out a few more applications on line.  I heard from most of them, basically with the same results as before.  Strangely, the first one I filled out, I didn’t hear from until Wednesday.  They were my saviors, and offered the possibility of work contingent on passing a refresher course.  I have no worries about that, I’m confidant I will pass with no trouble.  Even better, it’s shorter and less expensive than all the others, and it’s local. 

Soon my wanderlust will be fed, and I can enjoy the view from the drivers seat.  After my two week course, I spend about two months with a trainer, driving for familiarization.  Then I’ll be on my own, traveling the 48 contiguous and probably Canada, delivering the goods of society.

Like a Sunrise, Promising Yet Unknown.

This last week has been a stress filled fun time.  Although opportunities I had hoped for fell through, I still had a decent week.  The dream is there, right in front of my eyes.   Tempting and full of potential.  I just have to find that key.  The one little golden key, that will open the door that stands between me and my visible dream.

While one opportunity fades, another seems to surface.  I suppose it’s all about persistence, dedication, and follow through.  This challenge, the hunt for an occupation, is like a sunrise over the ocean.  Always promising, foreboding, and unknown, all wrapped up in one beautiful package.  I just keep hoping for calm seas, and fair weather.  Perhaps at some point, I will get the break I need and be able to set course, with prevailing winds to carry me to port. 

I believe I have discovered one thing.  Worry is counterproductive, and never helps when navigating the dangerous waters.  I’m trying hard to keep a positive attitude, and have faith that eventually everything works out for the best.

Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought.

The Pieces Just Fell Into Place Like a Puzzle

Today started off kind of poorly, but finished in fine fashion.  I can’t believe how much a little bit of good news can boost the moral.  To be honest, this last weekend was pretty rough, nothing falling into place, and one thing after another stacking on my shoulders, weighing on my thoughts.  After this evening though, I feel much better, for a nice piece of luck that has seemed to just drop in my lap.

I’m not going to go in depth just yet, but suffice it to say I could very soon, be visiting the contiguous 48 and Canada.  Really, I’m still in a bit of a state of shock.  I’m just not willing to believe that things can fall into place as easily as they seem to have. 

I’m keeping my fingers crossed, and hoping for the best, but things are certainly looking up.  I just hope there are no missing pieces to this puzzle.  I would really like to see what it looks like when completed.

Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.

How About This For an Office?

This video I found on YouTube, says it all.  This is the reason I want to get back behind the wheel.  You just can’t get a better, more beautiful office.
