Taking the time to enjoy a tomato

It’s been a tough few months.

Being unemployed has its obvious perks – no alarm clock to jar you awake, no battle on the daily commuter bus, no late evenings, no deadlines…

But I miss having coworkers, motivations, a steady schedule…and of course a steady paycheque.

I’m getting closer to that deadline I set for myself to find a job in my targeted career and I’m days away from finding out if I’ve secured a role or not. My fallback is to do work that I used to do before I got promoted (and then let go, for lack of work) – it’s a step back, but at least it’s a job. I dislike being so anxious about something so out of my control. You give it your all and sometimes you come up short. That’s life, isn’t it?

And then there are the times when luck turns and you get good news for once.

But in the meantime, I’m going to try and enjoy this long weekend – to enjoy it in the company of someone I haven’t seen in a long time and let myself be anxious on Tuesday.

In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy this tomato.
