Character Reference;

This is from a dear older, mature friend AND casual odd job client of mine:
Some people judge others by the circumstances of their lives: what kind of property do they own, what car do they drive, what designer fashions do they wear. Others judge on the important criteria: strength of character, good personality, trustworthiness, etc.
No one would look at you and think you are homeless. You present yourself well, you are stylish and good looking, you have a good sense of humor, and you exude confidence and competence. Don’t focus on what others may think or whether they are judging you.
Focus on your positive attributes. When that voice in your head starts telling you that people are looking down on you, stop the thought, say “Next thought, please” and replace it with a positive self-message. Some suggestions: “Jeff, you did a great job yesterday on that cleaning job for Donna.
She is very particular and she is happy with your work.” “Jeff, your latest haircut is very attractive…you’re looking sharp, man.” “What a beautiful day . . . how lucky you are Jeff to live in such a temperate climate.” “Jeff, your 7 years of Freelance business is an impressive accomplishment.”
As you know, when you’re feeling down, the whole world seems miserable, and it’s hard to be excited or passionate about anything. And I believe that we attract people, jobs, situations to us based on our own personal energy field. If we’re feeling beaten down and hopeless it’s less likely that we’ll attract the people and situations we want. When we’re positive and happy people feel that, and it’s more likely you’ll be able to create the life and lifestyle that best suits you.
There is a lot that is unfair, corrupt, and mismanaged in all the systems that affect us, whether governmental, corporate, philanthropic, etc. The most vulnerable are those living on the edge. And there’s a lot of attention being drawn to how bad many of the systems are. Changes are happening, more changes are coming. It’s slowly getting better, and I’m praying that it quickly gets better for all humans.
In the meantime, I would like to suggest that it’s best to put your focus on what is working in your life, and on your many strengths and talents. When we focus on what’s wrong with a person or a group of people or an institution we’re kind of stuck in the bad energy, and it’s hard to make positive changes.
I don’t know if you realize how successful and admirable you are. You had to become independent and autonomous at a very early age, you survived a difficult childhood, you made it to California and, with very few resources and hardly any support you are surviving, and doing it on your terms. Most people would not have had the fortitude to face such odds and emerge with the strength of character that you have.
It’s obvious to all of us who know you that you’re a very giving and helpful person. You receive a lot of satisfaction from helping others. You’ve found a way to help others while you help yourself with your Freelance business.
It’s not easy to make a go of being self-employed, but you have kept your business going (and growing) for 7 years thus far, keep good record of your work financial’s and racked up saved, documented ‘Assignment Orders’, meanwhile your belonging’s, home office and such sits in South Bay 5′ x 9′ storage awaiting on you to find housing and thus, bring it’s stored contents and yourself unto a new home, do what you can for someone, etc and self heal and recover from housing hardship. It’s not enough to say, knowing you Jeff, this should have not happened to you, knowing you have a kind, keen and deep respect for business. Can’t say, all do – out there. 
And we who are the beneficiaries of your excellent work ethic are grateful to have such a dependable, reliable, honorable, hard worker helping us with the tasks we don’t have the time or the physical strength to keep up with.
In Hermosa Beach or another South Bay city—I believe you’ll have a much better chance of being offered the live/work exchange situation you seek. People who meet you are much more likely to say, “Hey, this Jeff is a really cool guy, I’ve known him for a few months, he’s trustworthy, he has a great sense of humor, he’s a hard worker, I know he has my back—I bet he would be a real asset in my life if he lived in my guest house.” Much easier than if you’re a stranger and they’re taking a chance, not knowing what you’re really like.
Just hang in there Jeff, out of 472,000 in South Bay cities: Torrance, Gardena, Lawndale, Lomita, El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Hollywood Riviera Village, Palos Verdes Estates, Rolling Hills Estates, Rolling Hills, Rancho Palos Verdes, there’s got to be someone whom could offer and do – a housing arrangement deal with you.

Jeff’s inquired housing text:
Imagine having a few more hours in your day for what you REALLY want to do. Wouldn’t it be great not to have to spend time and energy on household chores, on yard maintenance, on mundane errands?
And what if you could be free of these burdens AND have an extra $ a month in your checking account?
I’m offering all this in exchange for a 10′ x 10′ room in your home or guest house.
I will give you a set number of hours of work per week that we will mutually agree upon;
PLUS I can pay $ cash a month – all I am able to pay.
And you’ll have a strong, healthy, reliable, resourceful assistant to free you up to enjoy life more fully. Less stress, more time to focus on things you need to attend to.
Excellent references upon request.
Thank you kindly and sincerely in advance; have a beautiful day/evening.
