What a nutso week.
I committed to a trip to Bali in November, came down with food poisoning and my ex got married. After having just been asked to write a guest piece for Miss Catherine's 'Simply Solo' blog and deciding on the topic of 'life as adventure and happiness as a choice,' I can say with full confidence, I am NOT surprised I was let go from my job yesterday.
HOLY EMOTIONS, BATMAN!!!
Any one of those things could be cause for a day of sappy movies and a good cry but instead I'm listening.
Every single time (EVERY SINGLE TIME, AMANDA!!!), I get too comfortable where I'm at, the universe takes the retro shag carpet I'm standing on and pulls it out from under me. So there's absolutely nothing to cling to, you see. No safety net. It's annoying as hell (AS HELL, UNIVERSE!!!) but I know God is doing me a favor.
The more comfortable I am, the harder I work for someone else. When I work for someone else the more I stray from staying present, focusing on what I'm on this planet to do. The situation at work has given me every reason to grab my leadership skills by the cahones & be reminded of who I am and how important it is to make sure I accomplish my goals. I want to change lives. I want to help empower people by living lives of kindness.
The world needs to know that living in love and kindness is a possible thing, a lucrative thing... And that it can be a win-win for all parties involved. I want to be a respite for the community and be a boss people want to emulate.
I have ZERO idea what's next... NONE! ZIP! ZILCH! But being fired after being the Team Captain of the pub is too weird, random and unexpected that I can't not pay attention.
Like Ellie in 'Up' says, 'Adventure is out there!!!' Once again, I've been given no choice!
