Today is my fifty-sixth day sober..
I've got an at-home job as a spiritual coach, using all kinds of cards and intuitive psychological stuff to help people.
One 'skype' line aint nowhere near enough. Noboy's calling. LOL
So next week after another intake i'll be consult at a second hotline as well.
I'm pretty good at this stuff. Mastered Leonarmand, Runes, Tarot and numerology (just for the fun of it, while detoxing and getting first-stage sober)
Today I've had an job-intervieuw at McDonals for 16-26 hours a week.
The kid is 25, managing 97 people.
I'm 28. Barely managing myself. LOL LOL LOL.
My third awesome project is re-schooling for security guard. I've got my official theoretics exam in about a month from now. Studying hard to ace it. Allready got an internship somewhere. But I need the official theoretics diploma to start this.
I've cot a college degree in communications. Managed my own shop inlcuding personel. Worked at my former college as an communications advisor. I've been an consultant. IT-troubleshooter, Inbound callcenter agent for the Dutch Postal Services, salesman in IT.
Man I feel old. Just 28. Sometimes I got the feeling I've seen it all. Done it all. I've worn suits and did my theoretical presentations for 100+ academic consultants, and i've been threatened to death by an angry customer who bought a CD from store I was working for. NEst to another 1000 stories.
My plan of awesomeness:
1. Ace the security guard test. Start the internship. Ace the internship. Get a job. Do more schooling focussing at security.
2. side track: do the spiritual coaching thing. Work nightshifts in security. I love the nights, allowing me to make good money to afford to study a bit alias homeschooling university alias philosophy, psychology, sociology, history.
3. start my own shrink/mental health care thing one day.
I really don't know if I can pull this off.
It's great to start from scratch and start building the life you WANT.
Instead of living the life you've always thought you SHOULD.
Sometimes it's very scary tough, but most of the times it's very nice.
I could NEVER EVER EVER done this in the slightest bit without
my sobriety .

If you do not mind.
It does not matter.

Hey Mr Clean, you know my philosophy My plan of awesomeness isn't going to involve making money for a very long time. But we can make rent and eat, and I never cared much for clothes anyway. My hair grows by itself and soap is cheap.
And it gets better littleun, I'm 36 and I feel way younger than I did at 28. 28 was heavy. 36 is runnin on the beach
