It has been awhile since I wrote in my blog and so many things have changed in my life once I was able to let go,
Have you heard the saying that sometimes God will do for you what you can not do for yourself?
I have known for a while that my part time union job was holding me back. I was not able to attend all business events that I would like, I found myself trying to get the through the day ( wasting time) and not really present for the clients. I have a business convention coming up in June and requested 2 days off without pay and they denied me. I have already bought my tickets and when I checked with a shop steward about what would happen if I did not show up, she said it could be an abandonment of post and they could let me go even though I was no letters or warnings on my file.
Again God did what I have been thinking about doing, I gave my three week notice to request to go back to a casual position and then I can be available if I want to. My plan is to go on a 90 day run in my business starting July 1st Canada Day, I declare Freedom and Independence.
My home front has changed as well. Since it is very expensive to live in Vancouver and I am a single income I was providing home share for a young individual who was more than challenging. I worked with this person for over 8 months with very little support unless it became a crisis. I finally gave my 3 month notice and when it was close to the time, I got scared. What if I do not find someone else? Maybe I can work with him, the summer is coming, he will be out more. Every way to validate not letting go. When I attempted to rescind my resignation, they denied me saying that they needed someone who can supply more support. The day he moved out it was like a huge weight was lifted and I felt very excited about the future. It turned out that the placement lasted less than a day with this new stable couple saying that he was too unstable to support. They asked me to take him back, I said no. I feel back for this individual however I have to do what is right for my family. As it turns out I have a new contract with someone that is very independent, is female and closer to my age.
When one door closes, another one opens, but you have to close the damn door.
