24 Hours A Day

    I guest I have been so excited about finding my new journey and all, I forgot the one element that makes having to start all over again after losing my job is that I now have 24
hours a day to think about how I am going to use my next day. When I was working for a
whole day to make an eight hour salary. I got up at 5:30 am, took a shower, ate breakfast,
drove an hour and a half to get to the job early. I took a half hour of my own time to fuel my
body(call it lunch) which I was not paid for. Some times I got home at 7:00pm, fueled my
body again(named it dinner) and what did you know, it’s already 8:00pm some 12 and a half
hours when I first woke up to complete my eight hours of WORK. I knew I better get to bed
in a couple of hours so I can start this journey over and over and over again. Some 20 hours
of preparation to make eight hours of salary. There was some reward to all of this I did not
have to go to work for two days in a row, however I was not making any money to buy the food
I needed to stay alive.
    It’s different now that I finally have 24 hours, 24 hours, did I say I have 24 hours to find my
new journey, a journey that could be a long one to travel, or a short one, maybe one I could
stay at home. No traveling, no spending on gas, and no pot-holes. No matter, what I finally
realized that the whole day of my life was my life and nobody else.
