One of my goals for 2018 is to read 52 books. With 15 books completed in 3 months, I feel pretty confident that I’m headed in the right direction to meet my goal. I’ve had several people ask me what I’ve been reading so far so I thought I would hop in here today and share some of the books I’ve been reading so far this year.
What a March, huh? There were a lot of ups and downs and while that’s something we call LIFE, I am hopeful that April will even out a bit, help me feel a return to normal and forward movement, and a lot of fun with some amazing people.
As I like to do, I’m setting some new goals for the month ahead, some fun, some lofty, but all still attainable with a lot of focus and hard work. But before we get onto my goals for April, let’s take a look back at my goals from March and see how I did:
March was a roller coaster. While we usually reference this saying in regards to the weather, “in like a lion, out like a lamb,” it feels awfully accurate to my month. I can’t say I have all the answers to the twists and turns the start of the month threw my way, but I can say the feelings of optimism and hope remain strong.
I am also reminded that it is in these moments of trial and tribulation, that a practice of gratitude becomes even more important and beneficial. So here’s what I’m feeling particularly grateful for this month:
It’s been a few weeks now since I was laid off from my full time job. This was the first time I had ever lost a job. I had known for awhile that my time with the company was coming to an end and I wasn’t being fulfilled or truly appreciated as an employee, but I also wasn’t going to choose to leave before I had something else set up and ready.
So what do you do when the lay off happens and you don’t have another job ready and waiting on the back burner? Continue reading “What to do when you get laid off”
