This past Tuesday I was told by my boss that:
#1. My hours would be cut to part time status
#2. I would no longer be covered with insurance
#3. He would no longer be contributing to my simple IRA retirement plan
#4. I would no longer have any PTO days (personal time off)
All I could say was Thanks!-sarcastically, of course. I'm sure the look on my face said more. I turned my back on him because I could not talk about it without crying. You see, I have been with this small company for 12 years and I assumed I would retire there. I have always believed that if I helped my employer succeed then I would be successful as well. Ask me if I believe that now, I'd have to say HELL NO! I'm 58 years old, thru the course of my life I should have learned this lesson by now. After the initial shock was over it didn't take me long to get back to my core belief that everything happens for a reason. So..... I went to my studio and I worked on this piece of art. There's nothing better than being in an uncomfortable position to assist you in learning about who you are. I've been uncomfortable before and I grew personally. I'd like to say that I make a pretty good batch of lemonade! You'll be seeing more of me.
