Life is not going quite going the way I want it to at the moment.  When I left the military in the summer, I had this impression of how things would be with a fantastic new job and a life in the city.  Well, the fantastic new job is proving more elusive than I expected and, after nearly four months of looking, I’m starting to get a little down about it.

At this point, I have to remember to be grateful for all the positive things I have in my life.  I am working in a interesting, challenging job (just not the one I want!).  I have a roof over my head – well, more than that, I have a lovely home.  I have loving, supportive family and friends.  And I’m healthy.  That’s quite a lot to be thankful for!

Anyone who has experience tough times will know that all of those things don’t necessarily stop you feeling a bit rubbish sometimes.  But all I can do right now is keep working hard and have a little bit of faith that things will work themselves and that it is going to be okay.  Maybe not any time soon, but it is going to be okay.  Right?
