This can only get better –

Life on life’s terms… seriously, sometimes this smacks me upside the head when I least expect it. It’s not always a blindside situation, no… life isn’t always hidden and unexpected. It’s just easier to convince myself it’s that way, so it feels better when things just don’t work out. The reality is it’s much easier to be honest with myself, learn and move on. 

Either way, accepting life on life’s terms allows me to stop taking responsibility for things not in my control (nobody asked for it, I just assumed the role) and it gives me the chance to put the focus on something I can — myself. That’s what I’m finding to be important in my life today – that I can accept where I’m at and try to be the best version of myself at that moment. 

So… I was fired on Friday… BUT I’m certain it’s for a bigger better reason – and I’m not just bullshitting… I believe it. Was I Angry? Hell yes… Hurt? Tremendously. Instantly I wanted to take that ick feeling and turn it back on someone else.  You know… “share” – but those motives and intentions are not on the path I’m taking and I’m grateful that I could Pause at that moment instead of reacting immediately and creating a mess… sometimes that pause ends up being the best choice for everyone involved. The best part? I didn’t have to completely lose my mind … 

The timing of this situation is perfect… it’s a part of my journey – Losing my job is an opportunity to learn how to deal with Life on Life’s Terms… What is my response?  Time to get honest with myself and remain teachable. Time to listen to my heart and share my experience as I go — life is going to to happen… but how I choose to react is completely up to me.

 I’m so grateful for my life ❤
