Today marks a year.
A year, since I got laid off from my job and my life changed…..for the better.
I remember the anguish, the worry and the fear…mainly for my girls. That they’d think of me as a failure, or that I wouldn’t be able to provide for them like I’d hope. But like all other hurdles in my life, I stepped back and saw it’s true value.
I’ve had a great year being at home and being there for the girls, and for Anthony.
I wouldn’t change anything.
My layoff wasn’t a self inflicted failure, and my career aspirations didn’t come to a screeching halt. They’ve just decided to take a different path =)
And if I could give one piece of advice to my children about this experience, it would be:
Change is a friend, not an enemy.
