Debi Posted June 22, 2009 Share Posted June 22, 2009 My 6 year anniversary was last Monday. Like my friend Gail, so much has happened this last year. Probably the biggest event was that the position that I relocated for 2 1/2 years ago is gone- my company is outsourcing most of their work to Central America and closing all their call centers. The timing was bad for my site - the lease came up and the company decided not to renew. I was offered another position, but I thought it was time to take my severance and run and find something new. How amazing huh? That I actually think these days that there are NEW things out there waiting to be done!! By ME!!! IN the meantime I am taking at least the summer off to roam with my son, how lucky am I to have the opportunity to do that?? I remember a few years ago when I reluctantly bought a car, when it was so hard to plan for a future. I had said that I hoped eventually I would feel confident enough in my future to buy a house - and 2 months ago I did so, I bought a condo. The payments are reasonable enough that I will be able to survive- my main objective was to downsize so that I could pay the bills even if I don't find a comparable job to the one I left. I also lost weight this past year, so far I lost 62 pounds and want to lose 25 more. I hardly put the TV on anymore, my once nightly escape has faded into the background this year as I have begun to participate fully again in real life. Oh, and I got two more ladybugs tattooed on my hand this past week. I have decided that the future holds good things for me. I didn't survive for it not to. And if good things don't come my way, then I just have to go find them-how exciting is that? Finally, my life is fun again. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
