Have you missed me? Slowly coming back.............

I know I have been a bad blogging friend.  Let me tell you why, dear followers.  I lost my job two weeks ago.  I've never lost a job.  How do you deal with it?  How do you deal with the plummeting self-esteem?  The embarrassment and humiliation.  Yes, I know that 'my job was eliminated'.  They loved me, I was a wonderful employee, it was nothing personal.  After 16 years, though, I am crushed.  And that's all I can say because I signed a release.

So.  This is why I have not blogged, but more importantly why I have not created.  I just haven't had the heart.  When I should be using my craft to pick myself back up and put on those big-girl panties!

I ventured into the studio last night and started reorganizing.  Well, it was never really organized so I can't say that I reorganized...just shifted some things around.  The mojo is not back, but I sensed a rumbling.  I'll try again tonight.

In the meantime.....anyone offer cheap health insurance?

I'm so sorry to hear about your job. The effects of this economy are far reaching. Although I know at this point - hearing that doesn't make you feel any better.
Hang in there my friend - - better opportunities will come your way!

Yikes Deb! Can't imagine how to deal with the job loss after 16 years! I can definitely understand the loss of 'mojo'. Hope you can find yourself another job and things will turn around for you:)

Oh Deb,
What a tough thing to have happen. I know you loved what you did. I can usually find the glass half empty but I am going to fill it up! You can turn your Close To My Heart into a business. I know you have the personality to do so and you are gifted in creating!

Hugs, dear friend. I'm so sorry for your loss! Allow yourself a set time to grieve then get focused on changing things. (ok, that's what worked for me - I don't mean to be bossy).

I'm keeping you in my prayers.

Deb, I am so sorry. Try to remember that this is in no way a reflection on YOU and who you are. You are an amazingly talented lady! When a door closes, God opens a window somewhere for you!

Glad to see you back here on your blog Deb. Missed you indeed! I agree that all things happen for a reason and maybe this is the fire under your behind! Go for it. You've got what it takes, now take it by the horns, sister!

Such sad news... Might I recommend Spherion agency? It's owned and run by women - a "talent agency"! I applied online and had two job interviews the next day. Now with YOUR skill set... you won't be free to create 24/7 for long!
Hugs and hang in there,
