After a really tough year at work, the lay-off notices arrived. I'd been working there 26 years and was one of many to be laid-off. It was a tough 13 months leading up to my last days. I went through a lot of emotions, both good and bad, but felt really good when I walked out of my cubicle for the last time. The sadness I felt that last day was about the people I worked with. I knew I would miss them.
It's been just over 4 months and I have to say the lay-off was a good thing. You don't realize how stressed out you are until the stress is gone. I've been enjoying my time off...a lot! Although I haven't been doing all that much, I have filled a lot of my time planning a trip...but that will be my next entry...
