As of Friday afternoon, I am unemployed.
It's a bit scary on one hand... I'm not super excited about not having an income. More than that, I'm not lazy. It's hard to not have a job to go to where I need to use my brain and work hard, etc. Sure, it's a little nice that I didn't have to get up early and that I have spent the morning running errands and then having lunch with the boy. But I'm not going to be content with being unemployed for very long.
On the other hand, it is kind of exciting. I think it was time for a change. I'm really looking forward to being able to focus my time on figuring out what is out there and what I want to do next.
I don't want this to come out the wrong way, but I'm smart... I work really hard... and I do things well. I know that I'll be able to find something new sooner than later, and I'm hopeful it's going to be a job I truly love.
Meanwhile, I am so thankful for my family and friends. Everyone has been so supportive, and I've already got some leads on some potential jobs. (So if you know of anything in Nashville, dear reader, please let me know!)
I've definitely been experiencing a mix of emotions about the matter, but I'm feeling pretty optimistic. One chapter has ended, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the next chapter holds.
