Since it looks like a great chance of having a lot of spare time to do some crosstitching soon I acquired a few new patterns ( what the heck was I thinking?), but with the great possibility of being jobless soon as I have once again stuck to things that my father has taught me, I felt a need for this. (Yeah right lol). My dad was a stickler for principles and that has definitely rubbed of on me, sometimes I stick to principles even so doing that is not in my very best interest, well it is and it isn't. So this morning I stuck once again to my principle and even though the consequence could be one of job loss, I am not willing to change my opinion and my conviction on the topic at hand. As the famous saying goes " one person can't do everything, but everybody can do something" and that's what I have done, and as long everybody thinks I can't do anything about things, that's how it always will be. You have to be the change that you want to see, and while I understand that circumstances dictate a lot of times what you do and can afford to do, for me being more true to myself and have my own self respect is more important than a job, a friendship etc.Life goes on no matter what and when one door closes another will open sooner or later. Have I taken a big risk this morning, damn right I have, can I afford the possible consequences, not at all. But once the initial shock of "omg I can't believe I just did that" was over, I actually felt better and a huge relief. Having an ex-husband ( not mine lol) giving you very much support and encouragement has made things a little clearer too of what I felt in my heart all along and what I needed to do, sometimes people need to just give you a little extra push and other times a damn hit with the proverbial "post" doesn't do a damn thing for you, so in the end, you do the things you do on your terms, on your time....and it was time to do this.
