My New Normal Day 6. First Week & Independance
My first full week of the new job is finished and I am happy with it:). Back to earning my own living. Back to being able to take care of myself. It is amazing how much independence you loose when your entire focus is on getting healthy. You do what you have to do and it isn't always easy or kind to your pride.
For three years now I have been depending on others to get me through the months and years as I worked to get healthy and then worked to get back into the work force and doing something that is important to me.
And now I have finished my first week of punching a time clock again. I looked at the 40.5 hours and took a moment to let it sink in that those hours will equal so many dollars and those dollars will add up to make me truly independant again. It was a moment of relief followed by a moment of absolute terror. If anything else happened to me, I would have to watch it all disappear again. So for today, I am going to keep working and get my Independance completely back and find a way to never loose that Independance again!
