    That's great! I was just about to do a search under your username. congratulations. My boss is playing games with our callback b/c we're in a labor dispute from the summer. But, we'll be going back soon, too.

    Again, congratulations.

    Thanks again guys. You can't imagine the relief. I felt like I was aging at warp speed the last few months.
    Just a few more weeks of poverty, then it should start to improve rapidly. Best of all, I can do something nice for my wife at Christmas. Man, was THAT weighing on my mind.

    Arko, I too have been unemployed for quite some time. I have been applying my butt off and I have some offers, but nothing concrete yet. I do have some good news to add to this in hopes that it will help others. I have read a lot about gratitude and being grateful for what you have. Last night I was really grateful for that which I have, in spite of current situations and viola, I received a job notice today from the state job services. It is totally in line with my experience and pays more than I was earning. I am even more grateful than I was before and I have a really good feeling on this!

    So, keep the positivity up and create what you want. Never regret yesterday, life is in you today and you create your own tomorrow! L. Ron Hubbard.
    My sister posted this on her Facebook page and I think it apropos for this thread
    Tomorrow is what you believe and do today!!!

    I feel this is why Arko got what he wanted because he applied this! I am truly happy for you bro!

    Unklfungus,
    I too believe this, and tried very hard to stay grateful for whatever I still had in my life, and if nothing else, it certainly helped my mental state.
    To at least some degree i do believe in the law of attraction, but as you know it's SO hard to focus on what you WANT and what will make you happy in the midst of crisis. I'm glad you seem to be able to do that effectively.

    And I'm VERY happy you now have some offers as well! I hope they work out for you! Keep me posted!
