I found out yesterday that my contract with my current employer is not being renewed and as a result I will be out of a job as of May 25th. Although it is a crappy turn of events I am not nearly as upset as I should be.
First off I hate my job and believe that it has been a significant reason for the weight I have gained in the past 2 years.
My job is also very draining mentally and physically and it makes it very difficult for me to find the time and energy to focus on fitness and healthy eating.
Also I feel as though I have been holding onto this job like a security blanket and that this is a chance for me to seek out the job that I really want.
In the month of June I am hopefully going to receive Employment Insurance and use the time while job hunting to really focus on me and what I want. I need to start de-cluttering my life and spend time in the gym and enjoying my life.
I have never felt so positive about such a negative event in my life before and am really looking forward to reclaiming my life and health again!
Has anyone else taken a negative life event as an opportunity to focus on themselves?
