My Job broke Up With Me
On Friday at about 3:30 in the afternoon, my job and I had a talk and my job basically gave me the its not you, it’s me speech…if you are not familiar with this speech as it relates to breaking up I cannot help you.
So I was laid off due to a downturn in work, which is OK, since I was basically being told the problem is the company or business but not me… I walk away with a few weeks pay, recommendations, ability to file for unemployment, serious increase in free time and and its summer in NYC such a good time to have off and I have not been on a vacation had any serious time off in 4 years. The week before the 4thof July is a nice time to not have to think about going to work. But there is some “work” to do tomorrow begins the work of filing for unemployment and joining in the quest for a new job with the other unemployed 7 Million Americans. Also begins the quest to relax and sort a few things out. Right now I feel free.
This loss of my job makes feel even more connected to the world (as it is portrayed on the news), I feel part of an exciting time and new possibilities. There is always HOPE in the promise of a new day.
