Work and the Crossroad Blues

 I went to the crossroad

fell down on my knees

I went to the crossroad

fell down on my knees

Asked the Lord above “Have mercy, now

save poor Bob, if you please

Mmmmm, standin’ at the crossroad

I tried to flag a ride

Standin’ at the crossroad

I tried to flag a ride

Didn’t nobody seem to know me

everybody pass me by…

– Crossroad Blues by Robert Johnson

Good morning, friend.

Waking up this morning feels harder than it used to. After opening the curtains to see the frosty residue left by the night’s chill I went back into my den to delve myself into the sanctity of my blankets. I woke up with this song in my head, not to mention a whole world full of thoughts that’s trapped up inside my brain.

“…I’m standin’ at the crossroad, babe, I believe I’m sinkin’ down.”

Upon not getting anywhere with finding work myself, the “light bulb” moment I seemed to have last night shattered into a million pieces when I realised “Umm, yeah I can’t work from home because I’m not so good at anything.”

Don’t get me wrong, sure I’m good at things, but I couldn’t make a home business of it, could I? The answer I found was no. So back to the starting point I go, like the monopoly piece I am in this game full of disappointment. On the flip side however, things aren’t so bad. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the negative things, especially when these things are massive and impact your life. For instance, no job, no money, no way to move out. But I know that standing at this crossroads wont last forever and I will move forward.

If you, dear reader are in a struggle at the moment – be determined and you will succeed. Sometimes all it takes is a positive attitude to get you out of bed in the morning or change your perspective on something. If things are hard, talk to someone. It’s hard sometimes, I know. Things are hard to explain or hard to even get out of your own mouth. You will have someone to turn to who will be there for you; be it, friend, family member, other half etc. even if you don’t feel like there is. Don’t be afraid to share a problem you are having. Trust me, you are not a burden, and if you are being made to feel that way it’s not your fault it’s theirs. When you find the right person to talk to, that person might be able to help you in discovering a solution to the problem or maybe that person IS your solution.

Nobody said you need to stand at this crossroad alone.

Until the next time.
