That shocking, dark spiraling feeling left me choked the evening I was sat down and told I didn’t have a job anymore. I could feel the tears well up in my eyes. I had plans…these plans had just come crashing down in a single moment, with only ten words my life had taken a whirlwind of a turn.
A part of me just wanted to sit, to wallow in the doubt, the wonder of how I was going to survive this hit. I went home that night, I cried, I drank a glass of wine, I prayed, and I went to bed…
The next morning I awoke with an amazing inner strength, a burst of hope, and a promise of positivity.
My last day at the office was nothing other than pleasant. Though some sadness of leaving, also knowing I would be missed by my co-workers gave me joy to know they cared for me as I had for them.
I had decided that maybe this tough situation wasn’t happening to knock me down but rather to give me the motivation to climb. I knew there were challenges ahead but I also 100% felt sure I was going to overcome them.
