Blessings in disguise

Hey everyone!

I know I've been MIA for over a week now, but I hope you all understand. I'm currently sick in bed with the flu, and not feeling so well, but I'm sure I'll be all better soon.

For quite a long time now, I've been pretty unhappy at work. I do not want to get in too much detail about it, but because they were trying to cut down expenses, my hours kept getting cut, or I kept being called off work, which resulted in me being at home basically 24/7 instead of working. In prayer I asked God several times to help me with dealing with the insecurity of never knowing when I have to work, and not being sure whether I'll be able to pay my bills because of it. It's been so frustrating for me, that it really influenced my mood and daily life. I wasn't my happy self anymore, and slowly going back to old bad habits of overanalyzing everything I eat, and that's a path I no longer wish to take.

I guess my prayer was finally answered earlier this week, when my boss told me they're letting me go after my contract ends this April. After all of the cut hours, I would be lying if I said I didn't expect this to happen, but of course it's always disappointing and scary when you lose your job and income.

But I still have a job till at least April, so I prefer to look at this in a positive way, and see it as a blessing in disguise. I still have a little time to send out applications to find the job of my dreams :) And as I said, I've been pretty unhappy at work for a while now, so to be honest I am really excited and looking forward to finding something new that's a better fit for me.


  1. I'm really sorry you are ill and that your job has been causing you stress. As they say as one door closes another opens and I'm sure you will find another job that you enjoy much more than your current one. Keep on praying.

    1. Thank you so much, that's very kind of you

  2. Hopefully the flu goes away soon. Sounds like the job thing is for the best, hopefully you'll find a good one next.

  3. At least you have a contract, in America you can lose your job in a second without just cause.

  4. I hope you feel better soon. Good luck with you job hunt.

  5. Oh no, that sucks but I hope you find something you like even more. Feel better.

  6. I know losing a job is scary, Sharon, but this sounds like a blessing in disguise. Now, you can go and find that job you truly love:) All the best, and I hope you feel better soon. Everyone here is getting sick too!

  7. sorry to hear about the flu, grate some ginger, mix it with honey and lemon, put it in a jar and eat by spoonfuls during the day!
    Jobs are usually the biggest source of nervousness! Hope you find something better till spring

  8. Hope you can find something you really like. Try to be positive about that and everything will be ok!

  9. Sending you positive vibes that you find a new job that you love soon, lady!

  17. I'm so sorry you've been ill and that your work is not renewing your contract. But, as you said you haven't been happy there so it's definitely a blessing in disguise. You can now concentrate on finding a job you love and that makes you less stressed! Good luck with the job hunting and let us know what you find!
