Confessions Thursday

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!

  1. That was so well written. Best of luck to you Dulce. You have such a good heart and are a really great designer, I can’t wait to see what new things you’ll do.

  2. I felt a thrill of excitement for you as well. There is so much you want to do and so much you have learned about yourself that a fresh chapter will bring great things. Good luck and I can’t wait to see what is next!

  3. Dulce – as I wrote yesterday – I know this is the beginning of something great for you. You are so talented and I know your dreams will take off! Don’t stop dreaming!
