Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! I have some big news to share. A little over a week ago I learned that I am being laid off from my job. I am one of just over 20 people who made up the list of employees to cut. At first I was shocked that I made the list in light of what I do for a living, but hey, I guess even payroll administrators are indispensable. I am very good at what I do. I should be after doing it for over twenty years. I can process payroll with both eyes closed and one hand tied behind my back. That is how good I am at it. I thoroughly understand payroll and am very familiar with several payroll processing systems. Anyway, my last day at work is December 28th. After that day I ride off into the sunset. My manager is very upset about it but I am not. I had been feeling for a while that it was time to ride off into the sunset and I blogged about on November 1st. Here is the post in case you missed it.
I did not tell anyone in my family about being laid off for several days. I did not tell any of my friends either for several days because I did not want to listen to people telling me how sorry they are and giving me that "poor Xenia" look. I am fine with it and look foward to all things wonderful happening to me in my life. I have been working for this particular company for nearly six years and made some wonderful friends. I will be keeping in touch with them and seeing them from time to time outside of the workplace as we have always done. I welcome change for myself and at the same time wish everyone that I am leaving behind there well.
After December 28th I will be starting a whole new chapter. I am very excited about it!!!
I am the author of all of the chapters of my life. I know where I want to take my life next but I also remain open to all possibilities. 2013 holds more intense spiritual awakening and study but that was going to happen anyway even if I was not laid off. This was always on my radar because my spiritual growth is the most important thing to me. Now, notice that I wrote that my spiritual growth is important to me not a religious one. These are two different things.
I am hoping that this new chapter includes traveling to all the places I ever wanted to see such as England, France, Italy, Spain, Africa and more of Canada.
I hope to be able to fill the rest of the pages of my life with miracles upon miracles. I have always embraced life and so to me the only way to live is in complete JOY. I will try not to sweat the small stuff that are really not important at all. I am usually good at that but every now and then I have allowed others to rope me into nonsense.
I am following my Yellow Brick Road and I encourage you to do the same.
I am off to see the Wizard that lives within Me.
