You Never Think It Will Happen To You…

…. but it did.

I got laid off on 8 February.

The signs were there.  We had all been worried for quite some time.  ours had been cut, responsibilities had been re-assigned, titles had been moved… heck, even desks and offices were moved.  All the things that the news, articles and websites told me were WARNING signals that lay-offs were about to happen were in effect.

So what did I do?

I hid my head in the sand.

Lots of things went through my mind:

“I can’t get another job.”
“This is the only thing I know how to do”
“I have no other skills”
“Writing a resume is hard work”
“I won’t be the one to get let go”

I was 100% wrong.   Whew!

The next couple  entries will tell you how I figured this out.

I am excited to share.
