This was something I read recently in the book, Finding Your Element- How to Discover your Talents and Passions and Transform Your Life by Ken Robinson.
It makes tremendous sense. It's all about interpretation. As previously mentioned, I'm losing my job in September. It sucks. What we do for a living is very much entwined with who we are; stay at home mom, teacher, nurse. Like it or not. Getting canned is a big deal.
A good thing, thank you Ken Robinson, is being able to look at this from another perspective. Why not explore other employment lifestyles; Temp work. Part-Time. Freelance. Entrepreneurial stuff?
What do you know, losing my job could work out after all.
