I'm so proud of me

Friday, January 17, 2014

I've been really dealing with my situation well. I thought this would kill whatever motivation I had, but nope. I've been hitting the gym or exercising however I can. I haven't been turning to food like I thought I would although I do enjoy a yummy dinner. I did have a couple cries. Mainly because I'm going to miss some of the people there. That place had become my second family. I'm going to miss working from home, my time off, and just having work/life balance. I won't miss the stress and working to burn out though and I'm thankful that I'm being treated with some compassion. I do have time to look for another job...that is awesome because it's easier to get my dream opportunity while I'm working. However, if that doesn't happen, I have a severance package waiting for me so I can take a little break, regroup, and look for something after that since people don't really get breaks as consultants. Mainly I'm staying positive that this will all go for good. I can only hope and pray that everything will turn out for the better. I'm going to go see some family this weekend and just relax and then hit the pavement some more next week. I applied for a job at a company my friend works at. Keeping my fingers crossed. It would mean Caley and I would have less time together, probably wouldn't have time to work out at the gym, but it would be a job with good benefits and that would be enough for me. I will just have to up my game and creativity to get those minutes in.. I can do anything I set my mind to.

    Praying you find a great job soon! Take advantage of the down time when you get it to focus on yourself because when you do get another job you will probably be busy. I wish you the best!

    Nothing wrong with having a cry or two to let those feelings out, and that is a much better way to deal with emotions than eating, so you are doing great!

    You SHOULD be proud! Getting laid off can be very stressful and bring up lots of emotions. Figuring out healthy ways to deal with all that is a REAL success! You will develop a plan of attack for looking for your next opportunity, and your positive attitude will help you seal the deal. Hang in there!
