I promise you guys that this will not turn into an employment or better yet an unemployment blog lol. Luckily, I'm a lifestyle blogger which means I am not limited on what I can speak about. With that being said, losing my job has been a bit discouraging. Sometimes I cry for no reason, or maybe there is a reason... I'm jobless, feel as if I don't have a sense of security, etc. Honestly, I am afraid of the unknown. I know that my previous job wasn't my career per se; but I am afraid of not being in control, especially that which concerns my finances, afraid that I may just have to ask someone for help. Although I haven't been in this particular situation before, I have been in several other situations where I absolutely had no control of the outcome. I can recount many a times where I had to lean not on my own understanding, but to something greater than that. I had to truly place my faith in the one above and trust totally, that everything was meant for my good even when it seemed sooo bad. And at times, when I didn't have anyone to talk to (by choice) I simply had to encourage myself.
I haven't yet responded to the uplifting comments left on the post where I disclosed I was laid off, but I am grateful for the kind words and encouragement (and yes I'm going to respond after this, lol). A few of you reading this may be in the same situation that I'm in, laid off; or you may be in another situation where you feel afraid, lonely, or simply discouraged. For me, inspirational music always lifts my spirit so I wanted to leave you with a few songs to encourage yourself.
