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!
