Bad News

Hello Readers!

Today you have the pleasure of seeing two posts.  Later I will post my Day 7 of the 30 Days of ME! Right now, however, I have some bad news that I need to share.  Writing is therapeutic so I have come here to not only share, but to unload and hopefully feel a little better.  I don’t know if it’ll help though.

Today at work, my boss called me into her office and proceeded to tell me that they lost one of their large clients and as a result she could no longer afford to keep me. My last day would be today.  So once again, I’m without employment.  I couldn’t stay the remainder of the day because I was just too emotional; so I left.  I couldn’t even bring myself to say goodbye to everyone.  I just cleaned off the computer files and cleared out my email, packed up my desk and walked out.

From there, I went to a local park that had a small pond and some ducks and just sat there.  I posted my news to Facebook asking for some prayers.  I did some more crying and chatted online with some friends, sharing the news with them as well.  I’m so grateful for my friends and family.  I was already in the process of trying to find a different job; one that pays better. However, I was hoping to keep the one I had until I had found something different.

As you may or may not be aware, I’m quite behind in my bills so I have NO idea what I’m going to do right now.  All I can do is pray that something comes up.  In addition to finding another job, I’m also looking into finding paid gigs for writing.  I enjoy writing and I don’t think I do too bad at it so why not try to get paid for it?  Perhaps it could eventually turn into a decent career even; one I could do from home! That would be quite fantastic to be honest.  I would love it!

I’m going to look around the house for things I no longer need and sell them.  I’ve contemplated selling my old wedding ring even. I’m not sure how much I could get for it.  What would I ever do with it anyway?  It’s just sitting collecting dust right now.

Part of me has thought about starting a GoFundMe, but I just can’t bring myself to ask for money from others.

If you’re the praying type, please join me in praying that I find something soon.  If you’re not the praying type, please send me some positive thoughts and energy.  I need to find something soon!

Wherever you are in this beautiful world, I wish you peace, love and smiles!

❤ Dottie
