I hope that 2010 has started off on a very positive note for you. I am particularly praying for a really positive year ahead that eases the pressure of financial burden on all of my single women friends.
Lately, we have been discussing the fact that in these tough economic times, single women have it particularly hard because we’re still not earning what we should be, we have to pay for everything ourselves, travel is more expensive for singles, and we don’t get any tax breaks. For those of us who are middle-aged and went back to school last year in order to build on our skill set so that we could either change careers or have better opportunities for good jobs, we’re living with some major challenges, the most significant being the hunt for full-time work and decent wages. This has proved to be harder than we ever thought that it would be.
I would like to extend my friendship, networking and emotional support to all my women friends who find themselves in a similar position and who are struggling just to keep a roof over their heads. Let’s put our thinking caps on and try to come up with a way to be helpful to each other!
All this being said, if you want to get to know me better and/or stay in touch more frequently, please join me on Facebook and put in a friend request there. I’m at http://www.facebook.com/christine.bode – I know that many of you already have and I thank you for that! I find it very hard to keep up with my friendships that are spread over about 6-7 different social networking sites but I do answer my mail on Facebook more promptly than on any of the other sites.
I look forward to talking to you soon and wish you all the best for a productive and prosperous year, filled with love and light. We deserve it!
