The Day After

Thursday, April 07, 2011

So, today was tough. The day after the layoffs. It took awhile for the enormity of everything this week (leaving our church and having my friends laid off) to hit me. This morning, it all came on me at once. I cried at my desk for about an hour. My WONDERFUL manager took me outside and talked me down and after that, I felt a lot better. He really is the most amazing manager and I just love him. It also helps that he's one of my best friends.

The rest of the day was extremely productive, work-wise. I'm still behind on things but I feel like I'm in a zone now and I hope to be caught up before we leave for vacation next week.

Then, tonight I had roller derby practice and I used SparkPeople to design a KILLER circuit workout. My friend, Raven, and I did the entire workout together and we felt AMAZING afterwards. So I feel good now.

Events have passed and we are moving forward. And that's a good thing.

I suffered the same thing only I was in the last group to be let go. They let a group go every month. The first thursday of the month, I saw more and more of my friends and co-workers pack up their desk and to go into the unknown because the company wanted to save money. I was 1 of the last 20 to go out of 300. It was emotional every day for us because we saw the emptiness of what used to be our "family" all gone. A huge center with just a few desks left is what we came into daily.

It is important to keep focus on your health because that is what will make you stronger to handle it. You will be proud of yourself for feeding your body healthier things and exercise will help reduce the stress.

One of the good things, is many of the people let go found better jobs. I am hoping the same goes for your co-workers. It is a time for them to explore where they really want to go with their career. I took the chance to go back to school and change careers totally.

Good luck,
