New beginnings

Friday, July 24th, 2009

It’s a week ago now since I heard that my job is going to change drastically, including halving my hours, and my salary. Last weekend and into the beginning of this week, I was in shock. I couldn’t think straight, and kept panicking. All I could think about was that I need to get another job, either as well as or instead of the current one so that I can earn enough to live on.

In the last couple of days, the shock has worn off, and I’ve been able to look at the situation differently. Instead of seeing it as a disaster, I’m begining to see it as an opportunity. Maybe I will find something new and exciting to do. Maybe I don’t actually need to get another job, but could benefit from the extra hours to do all the things that I don’t have time for at the moment.

I don’t know what the future holds, but I’m feeling excited and hopeful. I’m looking forward to new beginnings, whatever they may be.
