If The Elevator Tries To Bring You Down

Let’s Go Crazy by Prince has been one of my go-to jams these days. It’s kept me moving when most days I want to crawl under the sheets and never get out. I’ve been in such a state of confusion and depression that I honestly could not write these past few weeks.

These days, I am overwhelmed by a crushing sense of defeat. Unexpectedly, from seemingly nowhere, my project has been scrapped. This is not that unusual for Project Managers but the project that I was working on was so important that I was foolishly lured into a false sense of job security. So much so, that I pretty much abandoned my start-up and most of my other freelance ventures. Big mistake. Now here I am unemployed and struggling – once again.

These days, my pervasive emotion is an overwhelming sense of crushing defeat. Unexpectedly, from seemingly nowhere, my project has been scrapped. This is not that unusual for Project Managers but the project that I was working on was so important that I was foolishly lured into a false sense of job security. So much so, that I pretty much abandoned my start-up and most of my other freelance ventures. Big mistake. Now here I am unemployed and struggling.

I thought things would be getting easier not harder as I grew older. Now the old dark whispers are back. Am I simply unlucky or simply cursed? I feel cursed. I think of myself as intelligent but what has it gotten me – why am I penniless? Well, too many reasons to be totally truthful.

Anyway, here we go again – lesson learned. I will never again neglect the things that belong completely to me. In 2015, I painstakingly build my start-up to a place where it was paying all my bills and if I could do it before, I’ll do it again. Time to go crazy, as in crazy busy.

Are We Gonna Let The Elevator Bring Us Down?

Oh No, Let’s Go.
