January 4 - Beginning again
Saturday, January 04, 2014
Staying positive in an uncertain time is so hard. Yesterday my work contract was cancelled suddenly. I was told that I was not a fit for the job, as I was more geared to a management position than the position I had. Not the way I wanted to start the year. That being said, I found some positive in this event.
The job really wasn't a good fit with my experience and goals, even though I haven't been a manager in 7 years. The company wasn't ready to really get to the next level required for the industry. They will find out the hard way after their first third party audit just how unprepared they are. Pharmaceuticals, whether injectable or OTC, does not have room for a quality group with an attitude of "why should I care". I now have the time to really concentrate on finding a more suitable working environment. There's my positive.
What does this mean for me? More job searches, more resume sending, more time with Nana, no excuses when it comes to exercise, no temptations of junk food, more time for stitching, being home at night with my family. All upsides to me.
It's a setback, but it's not the end of all things. How we look at situations can make the difference between stagnation and success. I am choosing success.
