Last night I had a dream. I dreamt I had bought a house 11 months ago, that wasn’t even built yet. There was just a pile of dirt where my house was to be.
I questioned this decision over and over again. “What if I lose my job? how will I pay for it? I have no one to back me up, I’m all on my own.” I dreamt that my greatest fear came true, that 4 months before my house was to be complete, I was let go from my job of 8 years.
I dreamt that at times I felt crippled with fear and consumed with sadness. And that I spent the next 3 months trying to maintain a positive outlook on life and a happy attitude about my situation. But to be honest, having to search for a new job and being on my own (as I have been for more than 7 years), left me feeling rejected and defeated most times, in more ways than one.
This morning I woke up, came down to my kitchen and looked out my kitchen window. The last 4 months may have felt like a dream but they are my reality.
Today I am overwhelmed with gratefulness and thankfulness. Where do I start really... My family, my mother especially, she was always there to talk me down off the ledge, lol.
Strange as it may sound, I am thankful for being let go from my job of 8 years. It had become unchallenging, uninteresting and I uninterested in doing it. Now I have a new job, where my ideas and input are valued. And I feel valued.
I am thankful for the past 4 months, as I have learned that there is no challenge in life I can't concur alone.
I am thankful for change, because change means growth and life would be very dull if everything always stayed the same. "Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Jesus Christ for you." - 1 Thessalonians 5.18
