But that would make a shitty blog entry so I am not going to just yet. I might post it on Twitter or something, though. That remains to be seen.
So in one of my last posts, I told you I got laid off at my last job… the last job that I loved (although I didn’t love the CEO boss who was a total douche and ultimately fired me). But there is a happy ending to that story… sort of.
During my unemployment I stayed afloat with our finances, lost 20 lbs, and spent a TON of time in nature which totally refreshed me. I found another job 4 weeks after losing my previous job, and then had two weeks of not worrying to really enjoy the forced sabbatical.
I started the new job almost three weeks ago. I like it, well enough, I suppose. I’m still not acclimated to the environment, and the new team hasn’t accepted me as one of their own, yet. I am getting things done, though, and beginning to feel accomplished.
Karma took care to the douche I used to work for. I found out that he got fired only *days* after I started the new job. I don’t normally celebrate the misfortune of others, but I have to say that I delighted in karmic retribution. Because fuck him.
What I didn’t expect is the disappointment and anger I feel, now. I’ve heard through the grapevine that the other two owners didn’t want to fire me, but couldn’t put their foot down to prevent it because it would jeopardize the proceedings to eject him from the business. And so now, I’m super pissed because I could still be making better money, working with better people, and kicking ass at the other company that is NOW becoming the environment they were when I was first hired with them.
And then I tell myself to quit being such a puss because really? Why am I crying in spilled milk? It’s done and the only option I have is to suck it up and move on because I can’t change it.
Because in the end, life goes on. And the sun will rise tomorrow. And I need to remind myself that everything happens for a reason. And that reason will reveal itself through patience and hard-work.
So, I leave you with this, one of the amazing images from my recent outings during the sunrise. It’s amazing.
