I'm in a daze. I was right. Worst case scenario. I lost my job today. Layoffs. Lack of work.

I'm not angry. Maybe a little. I'm processing. Deciding what's up next.

I sent out 4 resumes today. One to the job that happens to be right across the street from where I'm living now.

I honestly don't care about getting back to work right away. I have no idea what I'm going to do.

So i'm going to wake up tomorrow

I'm going to eat breakfast. I'm going to go running.

I'm going to take this time to focus on getting me healthy again, so that when I finally do find what I am going to do next, I'm ready for it.

I'm starting to wonder what's wrong with me

    Give yourself some time to grieve the position but not long enough to let it get the best of you. This may turn out for the best!

    I am so sorry to hear the end result of the meeting. *hugs* Are you eligible for EI? I hope so, at least for the short term.

    I agree with IrishSunsets about going back to school. I know EI still has programs where they will continue to pay your benefits while you're in school -- some programs are for the full length of the course, while others will give you an extension but not necessarily to the end of the course. Even if you like the type of work you do, upgrading might buy you a little time.

    There is one bright side to this.... you don't have to deal with the a-hole supervisor anymore.

    You'll be ok. I hope you remember to believe that, too.

    I hope it's not the circumstance making you think what's wrong with you. It sounds you've had a not so good deal with your current company and they ended up not appreciating what they had. I'd give some thought to what you want out of life and see if these unforeseen circumstances can help you in that way. This is not your fault, but you can try and shine from these unhappy fortunes. Focus on your health and look for work and hope that the new companies are looking for good workers. It sucks, but you never know what may come from the ashes.

    That's right... sleep, eat well, keep exercising, get healthy. Visualize what you want and it will find it's way to you.

    The job loss is most likely where all businesses are today - cutting back. Don't let this depress you - keep moving forward,

    Maybe it is time to go back to school. Tons of grants out there, especially for unmarried women. A degree in a different direction would change your life...lots of courses available online.
