Crisis Begets Change

After spending most of the past several days an emotional wreck, I am feeling a little better today. Husband was finally able to get through my panic and make me see that things are not as dire as they appear.

For one thing, business is finally starting to pick up at his company. He got paid this month and all things being as they are, should definitely get paid next month- possibly on into the future. It is not a 100% sure thing but as Husband so helpfully pointed out- what IS these days?

What this means is that the onus I have been putting on myself of finding a corporate job with the same pay scale is lifted. I need to crunch the numbers this weekend to see exactly where we end up, but it will be less. Of course we will need to tighten our belts and everything too.

So this morning all of a sudden I am able to see this situation as an opportunity. Maybe the catalyst for what I have been wanting for so long. So what will I do? It will be empowering to figure it out….

Glad to hear it isn't quite so overwhelming today. Hang in there.

Good for you. Yes we need to mourn and be depressed, for a while, then we it's cinch up the belt and get on with whatever one needs to do to make it through.

I am so glad you were able to get through the dark and scariness. I can't imagine the stress and fear you must have been putting on yourself (I think we three all process guilt and fear the same way, thanks mom! ;) ) to be the provider for the whole family.

It is terrifying to go through change. You have family to lean on and sounds like lots of dynamic things are working to move you in a new course. And you've lived without cable before :D
