Okay, it’s 3:30 a.m. the morning after I got laid off from my job and I have thousands of things running through my head. First of all, I’m smiling because I know I don’t have to go to work today! I loved the people I worked with, but didn’t really care for my j-o-b in the first place. Most of my family and friends knew I never quit because we couldn’t afford for me to take a pay-cut with all of our bills we have. So now I’m laying there asking all kinds of questions like: Why didn’t they offer me another position somewhere else within the company? Why did they let me go instead of the newer employees? Who did I forget to say goodbye to and do I have some kind of contact information to keep in touch with them? Which companies to I need to call today and tell them that I got laid off and we will need our payments to go lower?
I have a home business and my goal has been to be able to work from home and eventually have my husband work from home with me. Well, now is my time to shine! Instead of being sad and depressed about losing my job and wondering how we are going to pay all of our bills and not lose the only car we have left, I’m thinking, “Wow! I have so much to do to get this business booming and start making us more money!” This is a wonderful opportunity for me to work from home and never have to go back to work again! I’m twenty-four years old and most people look at me and wonder why I wouldn’t just go find another job or go back to school again. Well, I have been researching about home businesses since 2006, when my husband and I got married, and since then, I’ve planned on retiring before the age of thirty.
I went to school for twenty-one months and received my Associates degree in Business Management and I plan to use that degree for my own home business. I am so happy that I was laid off yesterday! Yes, it’s very scary to know that you have to rely on yourself to make money, but this is what I was born to do! I am an entrepreneur at heart and I’m going to take this day as a stepping stone into our financial freedom. I am attracting abundance into our lives and I’m so happy. Most relationships suffer when there are money problems, but my husband and I just laugh it off and make due the best we can. We don’t need money to make us happy. I feel like a queen and I’m so happy with my life and I know that we will live the lives that we deserve. “Like attracts like” and I’m on the road to attracting health, wealth, and more happiness.
How would you handle this situation? How do you handle any road block in your life? Do you sit there and wonder why this is happening to you or do you know that everything happens for a reason and that this is just another wonderful opportunity given to you? Sometimes we may not see right away why something happens to us, but eventually we will realize that there is a reason for it and it’s how you react to it that will make you or break you.
