The cage is open and I am ready to fly

So as I alluded to in previous posts I was wondering what was happening to my job and now it is over.

I was laid off today.

And I am ok (so far), it is a kind of relief I am no longer waiting to see what was going to happen. I am no longer jumpy every time my phone rang or got an email notice. It is going to be so weird not having job to go to tomorrow morning after all I have been working since I graduated college.

Hubs thinks that this is a great thing and that good things that will happen. He, my family and some friends are thinking that I will find another job that will appreciate me and my skills. So I have polished up my resume and am looking at networking opportunities. (If anyone knows a good headhunter/recruiter let me know.)

Tomorrow I plan on getting some things organized and I have a long list of things to do at home and classes at the gym that I want to take advantage of.

So sure I am a bit freaked out but, there will be good things happening. I got plans, I will be ok...all will be well.

Fingers crossed.

I'm not sure what you do but I do know someone who is hiring right now. Send me an email if you want to and I can tell you what they are looking for.

Oh bummer- but it sounds like you've got a great attitude about it and that it was time to leave that place behind anyway. Good luck!

Nah, don't cross your fingers. It makes it too hard to type blog posts! All will be well even if you don't cross your fingers. :)

I'd tell you to take advantage of this little break to get some things done, but you're already doing that. Good luck and have some fun!

Oh boy I'm sorry. :-( But it sounds like you have a good attitude and I'm sure your blood pressure has dropped a bit!

Good luck finding a new job that appreciates you- you deserve it!!

I am sorry you got laid off! But happy it was not a shock and you have a good attitude about it. That will make all the difference!

I hope you've been able to make the most of your first week off. I hope you're able to figure out what's next for you ... it's hard to reinvent yourself, but sometimes great things really do happen!
