Life changes. At one particular place I once worked, they said to me the only thing that is always consistent there is change. I think that applies more to life than a particular work environment. As of Friday last week, I am no longer in employment with my day job. Yes it was unexpected but in the end, most things that happen in life are unexpected. That’s what makes life, life. I’ve had a lot of my friends ask me what I’m going to do now, as if it’s the end of the world. My answer? Keep going. I’m going to look for a new full time job. One that will be better. Why better? Because why go down when you can go up? I strive to improve my life and my situations to the best of my ability, so I will find a new place to contribute my skills and learn. Everything happens for a reason and every time something seemingly bad happens, something even better comes along. Like when one door closes, another one opens. So what am I doing? I’m embracing the curve ball life threw at me. It’s all I can do. Meanwhile, while I search, I’ll be setting up at more shows as they come available next month. My Etsy is going to be revamped within the next few days with new things in the shop. I’ll be working on new things. So keep your eyes peeled for my show dates!
I know I seem upbeat right now, but truth be told, I was really down most of the weekend. It’s sometimes hard to embrace what life throws at you. I am truly thankful for my friends and family who cheered me up and helped me get some of my pep back. My friends and family have been loving and supportive and a few of my friends took me out Saturday night and showed me a good time. I have a lot of other things going on in my life right now as well, even though I don’t write about it. It’s all hitting at once, but that’s usually how life throws it’s blows. But with good friends, a loving family, and a supportive boyfriend, I will make it through this.
Well, I have to get started on my searching and errands for the day. I don’t really want to go out in this cold snowy weather, but I have my snow boots and warm clothes and groceries I need to buy. What do you do when life changes unexpectedly? Thanks for reading and stopping by!
