New Leaf

I woke up this morning and decided to finally start shaking off the anxiety and the road blocks I've been putting in my own way in the last few months. 


I did some self care with a hot shower and good breakfast and in the last 3 hours have written 4 cover letters and applied for several jobs online without much hesitation. I'm looking into what my Centrelink entitlements are and will likely go into an office sometime this week to start that process and start getting some money coming in. 


I feel good about it and want to stay on track with my health, mental and physical, as well as really applying myself for work. 


I just thought I'd share my little bit of progress today and I hope everyone is doing well. 




Re: New Leaf

Hi @Emz215 I love this a lot and I'm so happy for you! You've made some excellent steps and self care is always important! I'm in a very similar boat, as I've been dealing with a lot of stress from uni and now that I am finished I have time to really get things in order Smiley Very Happy 


I hope things continue to go well for you Heart

Re: New Leaf

Hey @Emz215

That is so good Smiley Happy remember to take things slow and not be discouraged during the job search process, also keep up the self-care and make sure to schedule it in when things get busy. 

Also a quick reminder that everyone gets annoyed with Centrelink so feel free to vent to us here, a lot of us have horror stories that we love to share. I would avoid dealing with them on the phone at all costs, and download the Centrelink App too it makes reporting income so easy! 

Whatever it takes I know I can make it through!
