Why is Life Cold?
i actually have a very happy life. i just saw this graphic one day and got an inspiration for another blog.
why not write about the stuff that makes life cold? from the huge, catastrophic, life-altering events to the seemingly trivial, little incidents
that rub you the wrong way. it doesn't have to be a personal experience, it can be something observed.
on writing these down, my intent is to learn to appreciate life more and have a better handle on things when life throws you a curve ball. i want whoever
will read this to contemplate, not get depressed. hopefully, you'll share with me your experiences as well so we can learn from each other.
At 10:00 this morning, all of the employees were called in for a Town Hall meeting. Our biggest fears have come true - the company is laying off 30% of its employees. What's interesting is they told us before it happened. The individuals are leaving today, they're being called one by one by their managers and those left behind will meet with their departments at the end of the day.
This is weird. I might go any minute. (Note to self: remember to click on that Publish Post button before you go). As expected, nobody's working. Everyone's in small clusters talking about it, yet here I am writing on my blog. Maybe I should get laid off!
I'm trying to brace myself. Although my husband and a lot of my friends have gotten laid off in the past, I have never been so I don't really know what to expect. I know it's going to hurt, but I'm trying to psych myself to see the positive in it. When we were informed of the Town Hall meeting, I even entertained the idea of volunteering in case they ask for some. They didn't do so this time. I guess the die is cast.
