How to stay positive after being made redundant?

Office worker - I have had 5 jobs in twenty years and I''ll be out the door, again, soon. However this time, I have commitments and find it difficult to stay motivated in tracking down another job mainly due to all the rejections/lack of response I have been getting. The CV has been tweaked so it displays what I can do for a prospective employer well. I do sound enthusiastic on the phone to agencies and to the recruiting companies if I am applying directly. Any tips or suggestions gratefully received. Thanks.

I've had this happen too, and although this was really strange to do, I just sat back, waited for an opportunity to come my way. And, it did happen. Good things come to those who are patient and at the right time.
