Friday, November 20, 2009

Today is my last day at work. I was told yesterday that I am being laid off... again! This will be the 2nd time in a year and a half. Which is definitely not a good thing for a single girl who only has her own income to live on. The weird thing is that instead of being upset I feel relieved. Now when the bills start rolling in it will probably be a whole nother story, but for now I just feel like I'm free. If you read some of my past blog entries you can tell that I wasn't crazy about this job, well actually it was the company culture that I didn't like. And I was starting to feel trapped because I have been trying to find another position and/or transition into another field without any success. But now I'm pretty much wide open to the possibilities!

So I realized that I can do so much for myself health-wise with the time I'll have off:

* I get to to tothe daytime group fitness classes at the gym.
* I get to work out at my leisure, because I will have so much free time.
* I will have more time to make my meals.
* I won't have to make the sometimes agonizing decision of ordering a salad instead of the cheeseburger and fries that call my name on stressful days.
* I can take my dogs for longer walks.

I feel weirdly optimistic, even though I have no idea how I'm going to pay my mortgage. I guess I just know that He has something bigger and better in store for me than just getting by.

    You have such a positive attitude that you will come through this with flying colors! Sometimes there are unknown reasons for life's happenings, but upon looking back, you'll see the connection.

    Your outlook on the situation is what it should be. I too believe that he will provide. If you get laid off and you feel free... then you know you on on this earth for something much more. As for the mortgage... it sucks but it's life, you might want to call them ahead and as for a month forbearance just to take the edge off. What you plan to do with your time is excellent. I hope you find what you are looking for...6 weeks left in the year.. you can close this chapter on a good note.
