“It is not our abilities who reveal who we truly are; it is our choices”.
Today I found out I’ve been made redundant from the restaurant I worked at, and yesterday was just a bit crap overall. I know I’ve been through worse than a naff lockdown, a job loss and some strange circumstances. But I’m struggling at the moment.
There is one great positive though, I’ve secured my job at Leeds University Business School (LUBS) and I’m being paid (even though I can’t work!) so I should be okay money wise.
The Albus Dumbledore quote of the day has really given me a little lift. Let’s face it, Harry Potter is always a good idea, and so is yoga. Thank goodness I did some of that today or I’d probably have gone to bed at 5pm and that wouldn’t have been a great plan.
I found out I’ve been made redundant via email, so I feel like it’s a bit of a lucky escape. Who knows how long I’d have worked there without getting any respect, loyalty or appreciation? I think I’ve lined something else up for when restaurants reopen if I don’t find anything else in the mean time. It’s just a lot. You know?
On a happier note, I’ve decided I NEED to do yoga daily (with a few rest days) and I need to keep my mind active, or I’ll just get myself into a bad state and I’ve had a week of that. I don’t want to keep spiralling and lose myself. Not over things I can’t control or thinking about things I can’t change.
Today’s walk was rather eventful too… check out the eerie snow and fog. Because what else is there to do when it’s snowed and you’re losing a job? Why, you go for a walk and jump through the snow, right? Life is for LIVING. No matter what it throws at you.
Which snowman wore it best? You decide.
