And the unexpected happened!

What do you do when you find yourself at 33, recently divorced, with your mother moving in with you after she ran away from a country where it is now almost impossible to live in, and you get laid-off? First, you write about it.
So here I am, writing about what just happened. I knew there were a lot of changes coming in my life, some I had control over, but others really just blew up on my face. So I find myself thinking about a thousand things at the same time.
Why me? I’m sure that’s something everyone who has ever been laid off thinks about. I could think of 2 or 3 people who are less productive and qualified than me.
Could there have been something I could have done before? But ultimately I know this is something that even though comes naturally to mind, it does not change the outcome.
I find myself sitting in front of my computer, unemployed and wondering what the next step is going to be.

Second, I think about the smart decisions I have made that in a way put me in a better position than others have been. I have no kids, no mortgage, no debt, and no real responsibilities to hold me back. So with my savings in hands, I am ready to take on what the future is going to bring.

I know it will bring a lot of great things. Stay tune! I’m sure you will get some nice surprises from me 🙂
