Uncertainty gets me jittery. Correction. Idleness and unemployment gets me jittery. Waiting, waiting and more waiting for something to happen gets me jittery.
When one is unemployed, time seems to stop for a while. One doesn’t age, because there isn’t a progression of something. No progression of moving up the ranks, of going places, of actively learning something new for a purpose.
Nor does one grow younger. One is just..there. It’s an interesting period of life to be in – if one lets go of the actively searching for jobs and just BE unemployed. Let whatever that comes, comes. Let people approach you. Let opportunities come to meet different people.
Right now, I’m just here.
A presence, a human collection of characteristics, experiences, ideas and relationships…with not a job title.
