So about 1.5 months ago I was laid off from my job of 10 years. I had been working 16.5 years straight without any break so this has been quite the period of adjustment for me. At first I was in a fog. I could not relax. I did not know how to function in a life without a job. I have been mad, sad and every emotion in between. You know whats gotten me through it? The 3 faces above. They have reminded me of what is really important and have taught me to live again and not simply survive each day. Now that the shock is over, I am learning to embrace life again. I am sleeping better, laughing alot more and recognizing the beauty around me.
I am learning to refocus which is ironic because my church is going through that too. Sometimes you have to take an inventory of what is working in your life and what is not. Once you begin dumping whats not working the things that are working really shine.God gave me 3 incredible gifts and I intend to enjoy them. Its such an amazing feeling when you have God in control. Every day is a gift and an adventure. So with that said, I am ready to embark on a new journey. Won't you join me?
