It's Thursday and I could not be happier. You see, this is now the start of my weekend. I haven't told you all officially, but last week, I was laid off from a job that I believed had so much promise. I gave it my best shot, but in the end, it just did not work out the way that I had wanted it to or hoped it would. Unbeknownst to me, there was a lot of darkness in what seemed to be so pretty and shiny on the surface. And yes, while I was deeply saddened by this loss, I am slowly coming to realize that there is so much to gain from my experiences there and so much more to do with the time I have. And at least I had my old gig at the law firm to fall back on, this time being part-time (three days a week from Tuesday through Thursday). I was talking to a friend recently and she reminded me that there has been a list of things that I have wanted to do for quite some time now but have not gotten around to doing them for one reason or another: learn how to sew (I am so behind in this), master the art of European cake-baking, spend more time with the dogs, read more, et cetera. And so I welcome this oddly refreshing lack of a full-time job. At least, for now anyway.

  1. Oh, man... I'm really sorry to hear that. I hate lay down the old "Everything happens for a reason", but you know what? It's true. Pretty much everything amazing that's ever happened to me has happened right after something I thought was signifying the end of life as I knew it. Because unexpected and sometimes unfortunate events force us to reevaluate what we're doing with our lives.
    I think all the things you have planned sound amazing, and I wish I could do them, too! Especially the learning how to sew part!

  2. Sorry to hear about the lay-off but like you said, it gives you a great opportunity to do more. I need more time to do things I love too - my law firm job takes it all out of me and at the end of the day all I want to do is lay on the couch and rot my brain...

  3. sorry to hear about the job loss, but you sounds so zen and at peace with it. things like that always sting at the time and then end up sending us in the exact direction we needed to go. best of luck to you... and your European cake-baking. that's just sounds amazing!

  4. blah, T..sorry to hear this news. But I'm so pleased about your attitude towards it. You do hear so many stories of people being laid off but then coming to the realization that it was the best thing for you. Chin up chook! I'm sure your special something is right around the corner :)
