Change is around us. This week big changes happened in the world...the US electing the first black president. While change continues to happen around me, I always was thought it would never really effect me. Well outside of the constant changes happening inside the house as I fix it up.
Monday I went into work thinking our meeting was what it was scheduled as...a debrief from our last training session. Well, seeing my boss' boss in there...I knew it was more than a debrief and it couldn't be good. It was change. The company's budget cuts and restructuring were finally hitting our department. Our department would no longer exist as it does today...I am losing one of my coworkers at the end of the month...no longer reporting to the boss that I have enjoyed working for. As if I didn't have enough to do, I now have more to do. Not sure how to handle that yet. I have a new team to work with and will eventually have a new cube to call home.
But at the end of the day I realize how blessed I am and how easy it has been focusing on the negative of the year. I still have a job. Heck I still have two jobs. I have a house I can call my own - even if it still needs a lot of work. I have a brand new car - even if it is without all the bells and whistles. I have a pretty great boyfriend - and there is no butts about that one! I have a fabulous dog - I won't go into those butts. I have a great family - even if I can't see them as often as I like.
Change is good and I needed it to realize how thankful I should be for all of it that I faced this year!
