Your job application, your book proposal,

of what could be a great life.
If you live in fear of losing your job,

If you live in fear of losing your stuff and money,
it is clear that they own you.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

our only job is to move our doubting minds aside
and let the miracles flow.

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

whether you have lost a job.
Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The ending of a job or a relationship
may appear as the darkest night,

the time of renewal and rebirth
that precedes the new planting -
the beginning of the next great cycle.

Working at a job you hate is unlikely
to bring you either happiness or success.
Do what you love. You are far more likely to gain success -

And, whether wealth follows or not, you will be happy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

You are worrying about paying your bills and finding a new job.
Those are worries about tomorrow.
