    But I'm not feeling as bad about it as I thought I would. Time to get serious about writing.

    I noticed I was so stressed and upset after I got home yesterday, but when I was writing I was calm and happy. I think the universe is trying to tell me something.

    Of course, I will need to find a day job by the middle of the summer but I will be writing more.

    Good luck, just work hard at your online empire and I am sure that you will soon match your old wage and never want to return to working for someone else..

    I left my work last October and have not looked back since....

    I wondered where you were. I was thinking about you earlier this morning!  Sorry to hear the news. It can happen to anyone at anytime without notice!  I'm sure with your talents that other opportunities will open for you.

    Stay in the flow... smile

    Losing your job is a bummer - and it can be more stressful than we like to admit sometimes.  Good luck with the writing and chin up  smile
