I have one wish for the unemployed underemployed and soon to be unemployed this holiday season.

I wish you HOPE for the future for you, your families and for America which as lost its way.

While I have been trying very hard to keep my attitude in check. After 2 years of unemployment and my benefits having Oct 1st. I find my attitude has turned to one a bitterness. I am sure that I am not alone.  I am thankful and grateful for my oldest son who is paying my rent for Nov. and December. Then he is not going to be able to help after that as he has his own financial problems. I am applying for anything and everything but don’t seem to be getting any takes on any of it. Is it the fact that I have 2 degrees and that I am a professional that scares them off? IS it the fact that I am 59 years old? I still have plenty of good years to contribute as my view is that I am 2 twenty year olds. I have a vast array of experience and have performed very well in each, yet I cannot find a job anywhere. As my youngest would say WTF!

As I sit here trying to contemplate what my future will be after December, I can’t help feeling like I am stranded on the Island of Misfit Toys. I feel like I do not belong anywhere any more.  Like the toys on the Island all I have left is Hope that some hiring manager will like me and want to have me. Like the misfit toys I would be so grateful I that I would be the most exceptional employee they have.  But alas I have no Rudolph, Abominable, Yukon Jack or Cornelius to tell Santa to rescue me.  So I guess I remain on the Island with the rest of the Misfits. The only thing that is a real analogy here is that we Misfits know that we are not Misfits but are very good.

I wish you all the best holidays that you can muster up. Remember this, it is not about material things but about each other and the love and support that you can give each other. This my friends is worth more than all the gold in the world.

Peace Love and Hope!
