I’m working on the next step towards a decent paying career type job, and there is possibility/potential looming in front of me.
All I have to do now is wait to see if it happens, or not.
If it does, then it’ll be a huge step in gaining skills that will give me a career, rather than a job.
If it doesn’t, then it’s back to searching for the next job so that eventually I can work my way up to earning enough money to support myself in the lifestyle I wish to live.
I’m not talking extravagant here, btw. I’m just wanting to not stay at slightly above poverty threshold (for my size family) wages much longer.
As my sister says, it’s a quality of life issue. Yes, I can live on what I make. Yes, I know many families have so much less than what I do. (and yes, I do feel for them, and still try to help when I can.) But (there’s always a but).. I don’t want to have to live on what I currently make.
I want more. I want better. I want to do the things I want to do when I want to do them, and go to the places I want to go to when I want to go. I want a comfortable lifestyle, without having to stress over if or when bills get paid.
And I will get there. Hopefully sooner rather than later, but either way, I will get there.
But for now, I’m waiting. Again…
