I Feel Like Sisyphus

So far 2014 has been the worst...I barely covered all of my expenses last month and am currently woefully behind.  Several clients couldn't afford my services any longer; others have slashed their budgets. Sometimes I sense it coming, but I don't always have new clients to rely on. I thought the economy was getting better.  Yeah, right!

Right now I feel like Sisyphus condemned to ceaselessly rolling a rock to the top of a mountain, whence the stone would fall back of its own weight. They thought with some reason that there is no more dreadful punishment than futile and hopeless labor.

I've been pushing this boulder uphill far too long. Something's gotta give, fast! I don't care whether it's more client referrals, a new client from LinkedIn, or more focus groups. Gimme something, before I'm crushed.
