Are you sitting down? What I’m about to tell you may throw you off balance completely so I just want to make sure y’all are safe! I don’t even know where to begin, but I will just blurt it out. I am free! Free at last!! So fitting with MLK weekend coming up and all.
So what do I mean I’m free? Well, remember in my last post how I said that my word of the year is freedom? and how “Freedom to not be tied down to a job that I don’t like and dread going into each day.” was one of the things that drove me to choose that word?
It became abundantly and clear as day that God removed that out of my life and so now I am able to really start being the entrepreneur that I know I am and always have been. I get to do my blog and my Mary Kay business and I am so excited.
Trust me when I say that I was not excited when I found out my new job barely a month old was dismissing me. I was in a state of shock because how is it that this is happening a second time in less than two months? How is it that I put myself through this embarrassing and defeating situation where I go home crying? I promised myself this is the last time I will ever shed tears over someone having control of my paycheck and letting me go. The very last time I tell you!
I just kept thinking this is a blessing in disguise because I hated going into that job every day. I reached a point where I mastered that role before this job and was even training the new hires that started with me. Out of everyone in my new hire class, I was the one with the most booked appointments. Who knows, maybe my boss felt threatened that I would take his job because I knew more than he did about this role, which he barely started as of this summer and I had a year and a half of experience up on him.
What really baffled me was that they didn’t give me a reason why they came to that decision. In the state of Texas, an employer does not have to give a reason, but I feel that is so unfair on top of being let go with no warning. I kept asking a few more times why? why is this happening? and they were vague saying they just made a decision. Well no shit! but why! That’s my question. Anyway, they can just take their reason and shove it where the sun don’t shine.
Now that all of that is out, I hope you guys are still here with me with no injuries. I’m good, I’m more than good actually and already working on a master plan of how I will hit the ground running and really start working for myself.
It is scary to go against the waves of normality to work for someone else to have job security, but honestly, after going through being let go back in November and now this happening all over again, I just can’t make myself go through this one more time by looking for another job because that’s what’s bound to happen.
Some people may not agree with my decisions, but at the end of the day I know what I went through and experienced and they have no idea because they didn’t go through what I did. If they had they would understand. I’m not angry at all, I’m just thankful that I have an amazing circle of friends who support me, love me unconditionally and give me hope that things will be so amazing from here on out.
This is the beginning…
Have a wonderful weekend! I have an event tomorrow where I get recognized for promoting myself in my Mary Kay business and my girls will be there too! Yay! #LivingtheDream #PinkBubble #ilovemymarykay
PS. I wanted to let y’all know that I entered a contest to go on a date with Mario Rodriguez, the hottie on my post about pretty boys. They will announce the winner today and of course they will say that I won! So it’s like that movie Win a Date with Tad Hamilton and they are flying me to LA, meeting Mario for brunch, followed by a date at Disneyland, then dinner and finally a night out dancing! He’ll also present me with a bouquet of flowers so this will be the best Valentine’s Day ever!! I will be taking many, many selfies with the gorgeous man thanks to Melanie’s selfie stick and I am so excited!
