I had a phone interview for a job yesterday. I think it went well, but I got a tad depressed when the interviewer reminded me that, since they worked for a state agency, it would take a while before the next step.
Today I got an email from a pal, who might have a job opportunity. Just responding to him that I was interested lifted my spirits tremendously. It reminded me that I do have other options, and other pans in the fire, and that the only way to move towards joy is to keep moving.
I realized that I'd been feeling powerless, as if my only role was to wait for someone else to do something that would affect the rest of my life. But that's just not so.
There's just so much interesting stuff in this world, and so many possibilites, to keep me down for long!
