Fresh Start is running out of time

Update posted by George K Martinez On Jul 31, 2017

Good Day Everyone,

Sorry for the delay, but as promised, here is my campaign update and the FINAL one.

Let me begin by again say "THANK YOU" to everyone that had an interest in me and my campaign to get me through my hardships. I appreciate all of the prayers, donations, good thoughts and positivity. It made me realize that Love and compassion are still around in the world. That I am an extremely lucking and blessed man because of the people in my circle or life.

As most you already know (because of this campaign), the past 2 years have been hell for me. Due to my family, health, finances and employment I have reached my all time low, or at least I thought so. Last Sunday. July 23, 2017 the MOST important person in my life, my Mother passed away. Everything that is going on in my life is no longer that big of a deal. The only person that could make me feel happy, secure and safe with just smiling at me is gone. I no longer have anyone to make proud. Whatever my destiny is, I will accept it. For the moment, I am not going to fight it. Whether it is landing a job this week out of the 4 interviews I have already scheduled or being evicted from my home, losing my car and having to find a new home for my sweet Penelope (my dog), I will accept whatever comes my way. I WILL NOT stop trying, but I will accept it all.

In the last 3 month's I have swallowed my pride like never before. I been humiliated, embarrassed and shamed myself. By asking for help, I opened myself up for criticism, judgment as well as compassion, generosity and Love. It’s been an interesting little journey. However, right now, I can’t fight anymore. I’m done. What ever happens, I will accept it.

Thank you to everyone that showed an interest in me by reading my campaign. For the moment I don’t have the strength to keep fighting. If this is happening to me because of illness, I can’t imagine what else is coming my way in my life.

For now I am saying good bye. If and when I get back on my feet I would be happy to let you know how I am doing. Shot me an e-mail at [email protected] and I will give you an update.

Thank you again to everyone and God Bless you all.

Sincerely,

George K Martinez

A heartfelt thank you to everyone for your calls and prayers for me and my family regarding the loss of my mother on Sunday night. I will return all of the telephone calls and messages when I am able to have a conversation or even a thought without breaking down. As you can imagine my heart is broken in away that is indescribable pain. I appreciate everyone who is thinking of me and my family at this time of great loss.

THANK YOU!!!!!


A great BIG Thank you to everyone that has donated to my campaign. For ALL the Prayers and suggestions (keep them coming, I need all the prayers I can get). Due to my friends and families generosity, I was able to send my landlord $1,500.00 today. I still have a huge challenge and that is to raise the remaining balance of past due rent some how before July 31, 2017 (without having a stroke or nervous breakdown).

This week has started on a positive note, THANK GOD. I have scheduled 2 more interviews so far. Hopefully, it will remain positive and I will get hired and back to work immediately.

I will keep you all updated as long as I can (until they disconnect my internet and cell phone services). I just want to get from underneath this GIGANTIC " Black Cloud" and get back to my normal life.

Signing off for now.

Love,

George

Greetings Everyone. Let me begin by saying THANK YOU, THANK YOU,THANK YOU!!!! to everyone who has helped me. Whether with a donation, a prayer or a positive note. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. This has been a humbling experience that I never thought I would see myself in, especially at my age. It is a very difficult and trying situation. I always thought life got easier as you age and that is not the case for me at least at this time. I also Thank you for accepting me for the person I am and have always been and going to continue to be.

To those of you that have voiced your negative comments and criticism to me, all I can say is that I hope you never find yourself in the situation that I am in where you have no choices or options. I don't believe that it has made me a weaker man or changed me in a negative way to date. If you do believe that then please don't contact me. I only want positive people in my life and have no time for negative comments to bring me lower then I already feel.

Now let's start with the good news. I finally had an interview yesterday with a company that I have been wanting to work for for years. I think it went well, however you never know. It was panel of 3 people asking me questions and I received very good vibes from 2 of them and the other was very sterile. Hopefully, I will hear some good news soon. I am still actively looking for employment. If anyone knows of any vacant positions doing anything, please let me know.

After I began this campaign I thought that i should let my landlord know what I had done. I was doing anything I had to, to come up with my past due rent. I sent him the link to my campaign so he could read it for himself. That didn't go as I expected. The response was an e-mail stating that I have until the end of this month to "get out" because he has scheduled painters to come in on August 1st and he was no longer going to help me. I now have to come up with the entire $5,400.00 to get me up to date with the rent. I know that I am not a very good writer or express myself very well, but I never thought that I would receive that reaction. I'm not sure what I'm going to do because of course, I have no funds for moving expenses or for the deposits on a new place or utilities. I also have Penelope that I don't ever want to part with. I am single and live alone. I can't rent a truck and move my belongings alone. Here's something new to think about (my brain is going to explode soon).

That is what is happening in my life right now. I Thank everyone for your generosity, compassion and prayers. Hopefully, soon I will get some good news that I can share. Until then I will keep you posted with what's going on. God Bless!!


Sincerely,

George
