The Instability of Working for a Small Company.

I received this email yesterday morning:

"Sheena

I regret to inform you that due to internal reorganization, the position of Representative, Northern Alberta, has been eliminated.

Therefore, effect immediately, we are terminating our relationship.

You will be receiving a cheque for one month’s compensation.

I will call you."

Shit.
Really??
They JUST created my position in January.  I established relationships with clients all over the northern Alberta area.  I am more upset by the fact that all of the retailers and specialists may be left with no liaison now that I am gone.
I realize that nothing is ever a waste, but it really feels like it sometimes.
Like NOW, for instance.

I fell asleep last night not unsure of a future position somewhere, but again I am left wondering what the hell I want to do with myself.  Where do I want to go?  After numerous arm rubs, I passed out and was bombarded with dreams of moving, and past jobs, and buildings being burnt to the ground.
Of course that may have been from watching 5 episodes of Weeds Season 3 before bed, but STILL.



This morning I was awoken with a tray of coffee and eggs... my love had brought me breakfast in bed.  He had a handful of resumes and was ready to rush out and get a job and save the day.  Little did he know, he had already saved the day by bringing me fresh coffee.
A few minutes into my day, the phone rang.  Graham from Optimum Health had been so upset at my dismissal he immediately contacted John Biggs about finding me a position with their company.

I wasn't even out of bed, let alone out of my pajamas.

I had decided last night I was not going to let this setback become my stumbling block and that I was going to breathe and let the universe unfold as it always does... beautifully.



I had no idea it would happen so fast.

This is my favorite "music video" on Youtube.

Perhaps it will cheer you up?

I am okay with it.
My life always seems to work out, so... y'know... enough with the whining already. ;)

Plus, I have plans to catch up on my Curb Your Enthusiasm. I am WAY behind.
