Hello!

17 Comments

Right now every day is a hard struggle full of fights, tantrums, sleepless nights, anxiety and being broke. BUT! It’s all going to be worth it in the end. A few weeks ago I posted some questions about studying and employment for myself. Since then I have done the responsible alcohol and gambling courses and passed. I was especially pleased because these were the first tests i’d completed and passed in 16 years. Yay me. Then I enrolled in 3 awesome free courses to show employers that I had current knowledge and was prepared to commit until the finishing line. I am still sticking with my crappy catalogue/newspaper delivery job because at least it pays for my courses and again shows that I am committed. I rang up TAFE to apply for my admin course that I started 12 years ago but never finished when I became pregnant. This time around I will complete it though. I have given myself the courage to apply for some jobs today so please wish me luck!

  • I wish you all the luck in the world. At least you know that where you are at is a stepping stone and doesn’t have to define your life. Open your horizons. Could you start up a business or work from home? There are so many essential but dull jobs out there, go for one that lets you show your skills.

  • Just sending you my very best wishes. You have done so well so far, keep going and don’t be tempted to give up if you don’t get a better job straight away. Check the notice board at your local shops, sometimes people have a casual spot available. Be interested in people you meet and ask if the place they work for is recruiting because you are looking for work. A nice young lady came to read our electricity meter, I asked if it was a good job and she said she encouraged her brother to do the same job. You will find there are jobs that might never have occurred to you otherwise. Let us all know at MoMs how you are going : )
