Angie – Chapter 46

new chapter

I have been unemployed for 2 1/2 weeks.

I had only been working for the “boss man” for 5 years.  My job became a part of me and I felt I was a part of it…I miss Bentley most of all “my” beautiful golden retriever.

My first week was spent nursing a cold and coming to grips that I was no longer employed.

My second week was spent coming to grips with not being employed and turning 46.

I’m 1/2 way through week 3 and guess what…..I’m doing ok. 😀

I’ve found that I have been going through a full spectrum of emotions, shock, sadness, denial, anger and today frustrated.  I’ve even considered smacking my head against the wall….just kidding.

I have taken the “everything happens for a reason” approach.  What I was doing was never my passion, it wasn’t a “great fit” for me, but still good experience and I learned a lot from it, ALWAYS take something away from EVERY experience!

I love being home, really cooking again, having time to clean, being emotionally available for my kids, enjoying walks with the dogs and just taking time to breathe and starting this new chapter in my life.

I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do next or what the future will bring, but I’m kind of excited about the possibilities.

My new daily mantra has become this:

“keep trying, keep believing, be happy, don’t get discouraged, things will work out” – Gordon B Hinckley.
