Change

Change can be a scary thing. I'm sure we can all agree on this point. However, the most recent change in my life has been a welcome, exciting change. I was laid off last week from my job of 5+ years at XanGo. It was not performance related, but was a reduction in force. For a little while now I have been antsy in my job, and anxious to move on to something else. To what, I didn't know. I simply knew I wanted a change. Well folks, I got it. I now am doing a lot of searching and thinking about what it is I'd really like to do. This is my chance to do something completely different if I want to. What that is - I dunna know. I'm totally open to suggestions.

I'm thankful for this change in my life. Believe me when I say that I am happy, and optimistic for the future!

Wow. Didn't realize that you had been there that long, my friend! I was saddened at your loss...but feel just as optimistic as you now that I read your feelings about the whole thing....I'm praying for you, my friend...and hope you find just what you need :)

Sometimes we need to be booted out of something instead of just sitting there because we haven't found anything better yet.

You're in my prayers! Best of luck with all of this. :) And thank goodness for those unemployment checks. ;)

No one likes to experience that form of shock to be sure. I know you'll find new adventure, add more best friends to your acquaintances and happiness where ever you go!

P.S. They're going to miss you!!

Beautiful Erin. I hate Xango (but that is besides the point). Get back to your roots, deep down roots...like come back to where you were born roots. DC would eat you up. And maybe if I was lucky I could see you some times. Lots of job ops (ou should work for the state department), and singles (31-40)ward and the Bishop is awesome. You probably wont come...but wishing is free and I am using $1,000,000 worth of wishes. ***A BIG HUG***
