"Dear Karol, I agree with Katie Zee and Heather. I retired 2 weeks ago. I do not EVER plan to work for anyone other than myself again. I intend to volunteer in one of my areas of interest which is jazz. The public jazz radio station is near my…"

"Karol, good for you for working so hard to keep it positive. It's not always easy to see the sunny side of things, but you're doing it! Keep it up. Take that positive outlook and share it with others. If you're not spending your days…"

"Dear Karol - I'm sure that is so disheartening, applying for 40 jobs. Could you consider making your own job? That takes some creative thinking. You could keep applying, but in between, work on something of your own. Think of something that you…"

A road block.

I need to find my purpose.Walking the unemployment shoes is frustrating. I have applied to over 40 jobs over the last month. Keeping positive is harder and harder everyday.I am trying to envision a really good life for myself, it's hard to see that the light ahead when it's been dark for so long.. Opportunities these days are few and far between. It seems that now my thoughts are all over the place of instead the ultimate goal.I have nothing to lose so I guess I have everything to gain..Must…See More

Under Pressure!

Throw out count: 2I recently threw out some old make up I had.Crunch time, Grace Institute's program is winding down and now finals are approaching.It's strange to see how people react to stress, some laugh and crack jokes and yet some cry,( I mean literally someone burst into tears today in the computer lab) Thank Goodness for Chorus practice, it was a nice outlet for my stress.

Thanks Gail.

I was lucky enough to see Gail Blanke at a WINS event in New York City. I was lucky enough to receive a copy of her book, which really just made my week. I realized that throwing out 50 things wasn't going to be as hard as I thought, I mean, I only have my room for now.In the process of thinking about the stuff I have that I don't want, I realized that not having that many things is a blessing in disguise. I've always been sort of a person to throw away things I don't want, or giving them away…See More

Someone who is ALWAYS happy to see me.


This is going to sound crazy, but we can take a page from dogs. No matter how tired they may be or even sick, dogs are able to greet you as soon as you arrive home. What spirit!
