Well, so far I have been denied one out of one jobs. I’m working this week on more applications and hoping something works out. Never anticipated that I would actually have to get a job and it’s most unfortunate that the vast amount of experience I have gained by being a homemaker is not something I can put on a resume without getting laughed at.
I went to this women in music showcase a while ago. (there was this lady there that stood-balanced on her upright bass in spiked heels and played it! That was awesome, very cool. I just had to tell you that). One lady’s thoughts for her life were very helpful for me: Dreams are great, but they don’t pay the bills. That’s why she got a “real job” first then focused on music. It’s so true, and I need to remind myself of that. Sometimes I’m a little too idealistic for my own good. Get’s me in skads of trouble. I can have my head far in the clouds with some things, but with most I’m pretty practical…maybe. I know how to be practicle anyway.
So as a parent I want to encourage dreams but I also want to encourage being marketable. I’m realizing that after years and years of staying at home, I’m not very marketable. As long as I can get my foot in the door I know I can win them over. I just gotta get my foot in the door.
