Tales of the unemployed…

Well single ladies my quest to find a new job didn’t quite work out exactly as planned but really do things ever work out as planned????? To update you all, I was recently laid off from my job, now you could look at this as horrible and it’s not the greatest of feelings at first but after the initial shock wears off you realize that it is far from being the worse thing that could happen and shockingly may even be a good thing.

Don’t get me wrong, I need the income as I have expenses with life, my condo which I’m waiting for etc…but in the grand scheme of things it’s just another hurdle that I’m being asked to take on. And on a positive note I can now look for employment on a full time basis and can go to interviews with no issues and without having to come up with excuses for not being at work. As well the extra time allows me the opportunity to see friends I haven’t had the chance to and to get the things done that I haven’t had the time to do.

I have heard from many friends and family that the timing sucks as it was just before the holidays but really is there ever a good time to be laid off? I agree, that the time to look for work is not during the holidays but at the same time I am not at all doubting my ability to find new work and I have set a target of March 2011 for that to come to fruition. Also on a more positive note I did go on 2 interviews prior to the holidays and I think that alone is a good sign, and if they hire me great but if they don’t I won’t sweat it because I know that it wasn’t meant to be.

So single gals if you find yourself in my situation remember to look at the positive and not to focus on the negative. I truly believe things happen for a reason and whether it be work, your love life, your family relationships etc….things are never perfect but you have to remember that they will work themselves out if you put in the effort and continue to find the positive in the face of adversity.

My wish for all of you in 2011 is to stay focused on what is important to you, to dream big and to strive to do what is best for you. In the end you are your destiny so make it a good one.
