To complete an already trying week I was made redundant. After 7 .5 years with the one employer I was shocked, saddened, embarrassed, angry, disappointed, resentful, agitated and totally totally surprised at their decision.
After 7.5 years with the one employer I walked out the door half an hour after being told and will not return. After 7.5 years with the one employer I will not have a farewell or the chance to say good bye to the colleagues with who I have worked and shared life experiences with. After 7.5 years of working I suddenly don't have to get up and go to the office in the morning.
So as I grieve the loss of my job I am trying to decide if this the end of something good or the start of something great.
Jobless at 37. Time to re-invent myself and make the most of this forced change.


  1. Go for it Kate - I am sure these things happen for a reason. You have always been bright and determined. So I have no doubt you will be able to find that amazing job, career and mission.

    Thinking of you

  2. Thanks Robs, I think it is the start of something....hopefully great!
