Another Job Bites The Dust

I was laid off today. I won’t lie that it hurts. Being laid off, regardless of the reasons, hurts. It is an emotional punch to the gut that takes time to heal.

I sort of knew what I was getting into when I accepted this job. For privacy reasons, I will not share the specifics of job or the company. But I will state that it was the most emotionally, professionally and physically trying job that I’ve ever had. I have never come home so exhausted.

There were previous opportunities to potentially leave, but I chose not to. I fought with everything I had to keep this job as long as I could.

I’m a believer in the duality of hard work and fate.  Things happen to us for a reason, but also, we must work for what we want.

I know that I will find work again. If I did it before, I will do it again.
