It's Been a Year
May 24, 2017
It has been over a year....
Every single day I would say that daily I would blog. I want to be transparent. I can't be the only one going through this. The list goes on. Needless to say #WhenMondayComes I loose myself in whatever is going on in my life and the next thing I know an entire week has gone by and Monday has come again.
Inspired by one of the closest people to my heart, I was challenged to start my journey (yet again) on another Monday with something a little easier to achieve. I started posting my weekly #whenmondaycomes posts on IG and it reignited my desire to use my voice. The mental note for this blog is that I merely started #WhenMondayComes to maintain my sanity while I was going through what I thought was one of the hardest periods of my life. **Stick with me! I will definitely, amongst all of the things that delight me, open the door so that I can continue on my personal healing, for those who may be able to relate. My basic life will be shared amongst all of the things that my heart smile.
While reuniting with my blog I saw a meme that I totally intended on writing about however as we all know shit happens. Wanting to leave no stone unturned I decided to speak on what got me hear and the significance of the date that this was to originally be posted.
May 24, 2017 was 4 days after my husbands 32nd birthday. I can't recall the day but I can recall 7 days before this day when I was laid off from a job that I absolutely adored. The job was a dream job for a girl like me. It fell right in line with what I like to call my nerd life. I am a Business Manager by trade and that life has led me into the world of HR, Payroll Management , and the best part people management. I'm a people person at heart. It's what I think to be one of my best qualities. The layoff was due to a company acquisition. Totally out of my control and by no means a reflection of my skill-set :(
What came next was totally unexpected but it would lead me down a journey that I never saw coming. The world, my world, as I knew it would change in less than 30 days and I wasn't ready.
The meme described it best. 2017 turned out to be a year of growth that at 41 I did not want to believe was about to happen. As I reflect on what was stated above, every item on this 2017 list that was made I checked not only once twice and not every process was nice.
