This Isn't the Worst That Could Happen

When I last posted, I was at work and life was looking pretty great. Life is still wonderful, but we've hit a bump in the road. Yesterday at 12:40pm, by boss informed me that he had to make cuts and although he looked down other avenues, my job was the first to go. I was so much in shock that I was dizzy and sick to my stomach. He explained that it had nothing to do with me (thankfully) but that the company wasn't doing so well and changes needed to be made. I am heartbroken - I loved my position at MMC and the people that I worked with. However, we (they) are a small company and it makes sense to let me go. My boss was very sad too; he said that he really didn't want to see me leave, but at this point there weren't any other options. Tomorrow I will go in and clean out my desk, say my goodbyes and start anew.

I was devastated and am still saddened. However, I have no hard feelings or resentments and am looking at this as an opportunity to start again with a clean slate. I have so many dreams, and this might just be the perfect opportunity to pursue them. I'm going into this with an open mind and heart, and praying that God will guide me to where I need to be. As my sister pointed out, "This too shall pass", and "Things will be greater later." Also on my list of favs is "When one door closes, another opens". My resume is ready, but I've also made a list of options that I'd like to investigate before any serious decision is made. I'm so grateful for the things I've learned at MMC and for the friends that I have cherished while there (even through the rough stuff).

I'm off to bed; tomorrow will be emotionally exhausting, but I will prevail! Tomorrow is another day and the world is full of opportunities.

God Bless,

What a great attitude Marie! And you're right -- there are many things that are worse that this. You will prevail. In the meantime, snuggle up to your babe and know that God is watching over you and won't abandon you.

You are awesome, thank you for being you. I love you and am so glad you are my sis.

You are awesome too and I appreciate your support. I can't wait for our "reunion".

To both of you:
There are people in my life who come and go; several who are always there when I need them the most, and the two of you are on my list. I cannot wait for the day when you meet in person. Love you both,

Thanks, Roxane!

Yesterday I decided to get my house and life organized. I applied for Unemployment and cleaned like a crazy woman. Today begins the great job hunt! I'm blessed to have a friend like you.
Hugs back!
