When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt
I won't skirt around the issue, I got some bad news about 4 hours ago - I lost my job.
Yep, good old fashioned - got let go.
There is no use sugar coating it, it's what happened. I saw it coming.. b/c let's be honest - no one that works where I worked lasts too long, unless you are at a management level.
Really it is.
Wait.. I think I am going into P.R. mode... I am spinning it to make it look like it is a good thing. To be perfectly honest with you, I feel the way I have felt when someone tells me a loved one has died, or an old boy friend was breaking up with me...
Like your world is falling apart.. but my mind will not let me go there.
I can't even get a good cry out.
That's just how I react. I sort of go into solutions mode.. so much so that I had 3 people within the hour offer to help me out, or introduce me to someone who might be hiring. As I was driving home from work, I called home - and it had barely been 10 minutes, my sister started asking about jobs for me. I told her, laughing - it's only been 10 minutes.
Which sort of made me laugh, because they know how I am. Solutions mode.
I know without a doubt this is a good thing in the long run. It is. I have said on numerous occasions I felt stuck. God has a way of answering prayers.
Don't feel sorry for me, but I would ask for people to pray for an answer, because at the end of the day - I have to pay for my home and car and have food to eat. Also, if you know of a job - anywhere in the world (yes, I said world) - that I might be suited for - let me know. I might even be so bold as paste my resume on here one day. ;-)
I am not going to panic yet.
But I might sleep for a few days. ;-)
