Today I was laid off. And it is a good thing. I have been unhappy at work and I had an opportunity to get a package. I took it!

I am now in transition and my last day will be in May. I really don't have any definite plans other than to enjoy the summer. Come fall, I'll look at school or potentially part time work.

What a good attitude on what others may see as a sad experience.

Any situation that includes the word "retirement" sounds really good to me. I just can't afford to do such right now.

So congratulations on your semi-retirement!

Nice attitude! Can I say "congratulations"? Sounds like you are happy so that is all that matters! Enjoy a long summer and planning what comes next.

Oh my gosh, that's wonderful. Now I'm going to be fantasizing about getting a lay-off with a package!


Marta - great news! I cannot help believing that things happen for a reason - what a wonderful opportunity to find something new and rewarding.



As Judy says, things happen for a reason and it seems you have good reason to celebrate! What an adventure, starting something fresh in the fall. Congratulations!

Thanks everyone. I am excited and scared at the same time. But I know this is going to be great.

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Marta, you're very talented so I'm sure whatever you decide to do it will be the right thing. It's your time to be happy so have a nice summer and I'll look forward to hearing about your plans.

Take care,

Marta, what a shock! I am sure that after a good rest and recovery period you will come up with a more exciting way to earn your living. (I still can't believe they would let someone as good as you leave!!)
