Six months ago I knew where I was going every day - the same commute for 21 years. I held a key position with a respected company, I made good money, I had an office with a view, and everybody knew my name.
Now I spend my days scouring the job listings, amazed that nobody wants me, stunned by my change of fortune, and wondering how I will keep the family afloat.
When my daughter was little, and I variably got lost on any road trip, I would tell her “it’s an adventure!” In the last 3 months I’ve been a band director, a gym teacher, and an extra in a horror film. The adventure is just beginning!
