In Need of Some Soul Searching

As one door closes, another one opens?

Morro Bay Sunset

I'm in need of some soul searching for sure. Today I was laid off.

I really don't know what path will take myself and P,
but I guess change will be in the works for us.

I have a large list of things to accomplish quickly.
I'm crossing my fingers that many doors will be opening.


  1. Sorry to hear that. I do believe that when one door closes, another opens.

  2. Oh no, I am sorry to hear about your job. Keeping my fingers crossed here for you too and hoping that bigger and better things come your way!! (((((Hugs)))))

  3. This is a rising sun, is it? I'll keep my fingers crossed.

  4. I'm so sorry. I wish you the best of luck on whatever comes next.

  5. Oh pooh! That's not good. But knowing you, you'll make the best of it and find something even better really soon!

  6. I am so sorry. That positive attitude will help and I am sure there is a new adventure just around the corner. Thanking of you.

  7. When I was laid off a long time ago, I did not realize how much stress I had been under. My handwriting changed, tension gone, and better opportunities came forth. As my hubby will say this turns to a new chapter in our book. Another saying from my nifty rolodex..."We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust our sails."
    Take Care!

  8. Sorry to hear, but if you keep on thinking positively, I'm sure more then one door will oppen!

    I'll cross my fingers and toes for you!

    Beautiful photo btw!

  9. I hope things will turn up soon. Keep the faith. Hugs.

  10. You are a strong woman, Jen, and you will get through this. We're not given any more than we can bear, as this last year has proven for me. The image is WONDERFUL. Hang in there.

  11. Wishing you the best and that something great will turn up for you soon.

  14. I'm really to hear that, I'm sure it comes as a shock. Don't take it personally, it happened to a lot of people lately.

    It's a chance for new opportunities.

  15. hi, i know it is a difficult situation to be laid off. but God has a plan, i believe, for you.

    i don't know you personally but to be able to write about this sad reality means you are a strong person. we have to deal with any adversity squarely but have faith and truly, another door will open.

    God bless. :-)

  16. We Definitely have to do a coffee then soon, I'm back from the Philippines and.. still laid off too!
