Ironic that I would have Carrie Bradshaw running through my head, as my boss broke the news. When he spoke, I looked at his lips, pursing and opening, making sounds. The whole ordeal was a bit surreal. And after a while, I realized that the company was letting me go. Twenty of us were laid off yesterday.
But I have a confession to make. I am not sad, but rather relieved. The threat of a lay-off had been looming over our heads for years. And to be quite honest, I wasn’t able to do what I love. And that can make a passionate person like me feel imprisoned. What I learned about myself through my working experience is that I am an extremely creative and dedicated person. I need to create and I am good at it.
So it seems that it’s time for the next thing. And as much as there is fear about the unpredictable, there is also excitement. I have no idea where this new path will take me. But I have high hopes that it will lead me to where I am supposed to be. And I imagine that it will be full of wonder…
Wish me luck on my new endeavors!
