Update

I thought it was time I updated you all on my life.

After all, this blog started out as a personal diary and somewhere along the way I lost myself amidst all the fabulousness.

After almost two years of being rejected by every other career known to man, I was finally offered a freelancing gig at my old newspaper. So I've been very busy lately, which is good news. It's been a comfort nestling back into the familiar cradle of news reporting. I feel like this blog helped me maintain my writing skills, because I found it effortless to fall back into the swing of things.

Unfortunately, that seems to be the only positive change in my life right now. I'm facing a multitude of horrible issues, most of which I am powerless against.

I've been dreadfully ill, I'm in financial trouble, and there are literally dozens of other serious problems which have morphed themselves into a monster.

Plus, the holidays are not a particularly cheerful time of year for my family. So there's that.

On top of all my own stresses, I am dealing with the sickness of a friend. This person is in the hospital. It is a nightmare to witness.

I wish I had better things to say. I really thought 2011 was going to be my year. Clearly, I was mistaken.

I'm not particularly religious, so I don't feel comfortable asking people to "pray for me." But if you could send me good vibes, I would be grateful.

Thank you.

Jennifer, of course I'll pray for you. I hope everything gets better. I can relate with a few things you've got going on. I won't bore you with any details, but sometimes I wish I could grow a pair of wings and just fly the hell out of here. LOL.

Feel better :) And remember that you're smart and beautiful. I'm sure all of these lovely readers wishing you good luck will help you in more ways than one with their good vibes.

XOXO

I'm sending you every positive vibe I can muster and trying to absorb more from the most optimistic souls in my immediate vicinity so I can send you even more.

I'm happy to hear about the job though, hopefully that helps to sort out some of the financial messiness and is also the start of better things to come.

Biiiiig hugs!

As someone who has been there, I am going to tell you one thing. Everything is going to be ok. When it rains it pours, and sometimes things don't often work out the way you plan...
BUT there is always a reason for that. That is life sometimes. We may not understand it at the time and make no sense right now.. but it will. Hang in there, and take it day by day. Remember the things that make you smile... really smile.

Sorry to read this, Jenny. You can't do much about your poor friend being ill, but once you get back on your feet, you will be able to look at things in a more positive way, that's a promise. First of all, the freelancing job. That's great news. And you still have the wonderful boyfriend of yours, and all your friends, in cyberspace and around you too. Life runs in cycles Jenny, and yes, I agree, you are not in a good cycle right now, but the wheel turns. It absolutely does. It's all about "hanging in there" sometimes. Oh, and I think you should stop writing about these poor Hollywood souls who had so much drama in their lives for a while ;-) You need to surround yourself with cheerful, positive vibes. Find a couple of people who are doing wonderful, positive things and focus on writing about them for a while. I hope you feel better soon. Veronique

Good vibes definitely being sent your way! hope everything works out and sorry you've been having a tough time of it all!!

Tights Lover said...

I'm sending your way all the good karma you can handle!

Maybe the newspaper gig is the beginning of you turning things around. I certainly believe it is.

Holidays + family = stressfulness...I'm right there with you on that. And that's horrible to hear about your friend. I really hope things work out for the best...I hate that things aren't going well for you right now.

I'll be hoping things take a turn for the better for you!

Stephanie said...

Done and done. Good vibes and prayers are sent your way! Anchor yourself in the positivity of the job - I can't say that it'll be enough to deal with the not-so-great stuff in your life right now, but I think it's a good place to start.

Thanks for your honesty in this post. Your blogger network has got your back!

Miksu said...

I thought too that 2011 would be my year. In a way it has been, I've found love but at the same I have and I still do deal with things I never thought would happen to me :( But people around me make me want to even try to survive, and I know that in the end everything will be okay! :)

Love,

Life is so tough sometimes. I know there are days when I really can't focus on the positive. I do hope things get better for you!

The holidays mostly piss me off =)...
