Taking my life back!

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

After several days of being an emotional wreck I am taking back my life. I signed the separation agreement and accepted my former employers' severance package. I couldn't take being an emotional wreck, not eating and not sleeping. It was taking too much of a physical toll on me.

As a friend told me, things happen for a reason. So it is time for me to move on in my life. Yes, the timing of being laid off was absolutely horrible but such is life. Working there for the past three years I gained A LOT of experience, made really good connections, and most importantly made good friends.

So today is a new day. I feel so much better, slept well last night. I ate a good breakfast and now I'm heading to the gym before it gets too hot and I melt between home and the gym. Then I'm off to the grocery store and pick up some stuff to make dinner tonight. Get everything done in the am while still somewhat cool so I minimize the time spent outside in 100 degree heat.

On the job front I already have phone interview scheduled for next week. Plus, have my resume submitted for two other jobs.

Stay cool! emoticon

    As someone who was laid off almost about a year and a half ago, I completely understand how emotionally draining it can be. Good for you on keeping a positive attitude and turning things around!
