I got my pink slip yesterday. Whew!!!!! In these troubled times I should be worried, but I am not. In fact, all I could think about was getting a chance to really clean my house and finally spend some good time with my daughter.
For the last year or so I’ve been so stressed out because of work and I have been really hard on myself because I feel like I don’t spend enough time with my daughter – it’s so ridiculous that I rush rush rush in the morning and many days I start my day off screaming at her because she’s not moving as quickly as I need her to. I don’t have time to talk to her teachers to see how she’s doing; I definitely don’t have time to stop in and visit with the folks at her school. I see her for about 2-3 hours a days (morning and evening combined) and recently I’ve really felt like this just isn’t right. About 3 weeks ago I decided that I needed another job – even if that meant a pay cut – because the role that I was playing just wasn’t working out for me. I started looking and putting my feelers out and yesterday they must have gotten hip to my game and terminated my employment first.
So, here I am and I feel FREE!!!!!! I woke up a few minutes later than I usually do and I played with my daughter this morning – played?!?!? Can you imagine????? I got her ready for school and I am now relaxing. This is a blessing – it’s actually not even in disguise because I was terribly unhappy for a while. I will find another job and one that will fit – not just professionally, but personally.
Lesson here – everything happens for a reason!
