What Happened to Me?

In the last several months, I have had a lot of time to evaluate life and to look at myself under a magnifying glass. Some of the things that I could see made me happy.  Others…not so much!

One thing that really bothered me was the realization of how negative I had become. And there was no joy or happiness left either.

What happened to me? Where did the happiness in my life escape to? How did I become so negative? Can I find me again?

For months, I could feel some sort of change coming in my life. But I wasn’t sure what this change would be or how it would come. It was just a feeling that I couldn’t shake. And then it happened…I get the pink slip. GREAT! Now what?!?!?!

Becoming unemployed and learning that I was not in control of life was just what I needed to find me again.

It didn’t take long for me to realize this either. Of all the emotions that came with me losing my job, the most prominent was a sense of relief. Yes…I said relief. My job was the greatest source of my unhappiness and negative attitude.

Somehow…almost overnight…I was starting to find me again.
