finding a new job at 58

Hi , I could use a pep talk about looking for new work at 58. I am an esthetician. I no longer have the passion for spa work and feel I don’t measure up in appearance despite staying in shape and careful cosmetic application. I got certifiied as a phlebotomist and have applied to several companies for work but no luck. I feel at 58 no one is interested in me and it is useless to consider pursuing anything else. My current job is very demanding and causes tremendous pain and stress PLUS it is not what I can do until 65. Any thoughts for me?
