Again, I turn on my tv and there are the blaring reports that several companies are laying off their employees…not just minor layoffs, mind you, but, major: Airlines, Banks, Stores, Car Dealerships and the list goes on…Folks in the thousands are losing their jobs…even nurses- where there have always been a call out for more of us in this medical arena, are fielding the “what will tomorrow bring?”
Anyone who visits clara54 (everyone is welcome) know of my dilemma this last year…I’m a professional midlife nurse. A woman in transition who decided one day to record her journey into building up her dream and exploring her freelance writing passion because of obvious nurse burnout… So far, the journey have been filled with bits & spurts of good things happening. I’ve landed a few impressive gigs from some impressive folks in the publishing arena.
I’ve lost out on some great writing opportunities also. I’m most encouraged though, by the many friends in cyberspace whose goals/passions equals & surpasses my own…Folks who have been willing to take time out to lay out the welcome mat into their world of freelance writing…I’m encouraged by it all, here & abroad…the feel of community…the connection in a world of uncertain economic times.
Because I’m a participant in the workforce, I can’t help but wonder, what’s to become of the working class? What’s going to happen if those in Govt can’t turn this disaster around? One thing I know for sure, I’ll never give up my dream… my passion which has become my purpose as I take my “rightful” place in the world of freelance writing…
