And then my world got turned upside down. And not for the worse? Yeah, that would be right now.
I have been laid off. Today.
That’s right. At the end of this month I will be unemployed. Un. Em. Ployed. Without work. No income.
I am fortunate though. This could be (and continues to be) a really scary and uncertain time for people. But, I really don’t have anything or anyone holding me here. My expenses are limited to my phone and my credit card (boo).
I don’t have any dependents (single and childless right here).
I don’t own a home.
I don’t own a vehicle.
I just disconnect my internet.
Break my lease on my apartment.
Put a hold on my student loan payments (ugh).
Drop off everything at Value Village (except my bike and TV).
Hop on a plane and head to my parents where I can spend my days job hunting and not starving (bonus).
But did I NOT say 3 days ago about job hunting? I think my exact words were: “I’m also looking for a new job and we all know how little fun job-hunting is. Oy.”
Crazy right? I think I could see it coming down the pipe. I wasn’t the only one which actually made me feel better. I think one other positions were contract positions that weren’t renewed.
Anyway, just thought I’d share that with you all. It’s so weird because last night I was soooo jazzed and inspired and I was up putting new workout songs on my playlist and I was up this morning for the first time in forever and fit in a workout before work. So I think my head is just in the right place. I’m in the right space. This isn’t the worst thing in the world. This is an opportunity.
I am untethered and I have the whole world in front of me. I’m gonna take it!
