Happy first day of October! Fall is my favorite season for multiple reasons, but mainly because it's the season of change. The leaves change, the weather get cooler, everyone seems to be in a better mood (myself included). Change can be super scary, but also really exciting and this October will be different than past Octobers.
On Tuesday, I got laid off from my job. It came out of nowhere, the position no longer exists--there was nothing I could do.
Now, basically everyone knows. I was honestly nervous to type that sentence because I feel like I have people cheering for me to fail.
I spent most of Tuesday sobbing and worrying about how I would continue to save money for all of my goals and dreams with no income. I was also really embarrassed. I did a good job, so why me? I woke up Wednesday with a major headache and puffy eyes, but was also filled with a sense of peace.
You see, I'm learning through this process that God's plan is way better than whatever I thought was going to happen. Infinitely better. I almost feel like He left it up to me to leave my job and when I didn't, He took matters into His own hands and gave me the kick in the butt that I needed.
Plus, if He brings you to it, He'll get you through it, right?
I'm on to bigger and better things (though I'm not sure what it is yet). I can take the skills that I learned over the past two years and really do anything I want. So while change is scary, it's also exciting and full of hope and promise.
I'm using this time off to do some major soul searching. I just moved back home, I have no bills, I can shop out of my sister's closets, life is still good. At this point in my life, I have the luxury to be picky.

I realize this whole post had nothing to do with the outfit in the pictures, but isn't it so cute! These are my sisters pants and I actually had to roll them under because they were way too long on me! #shortpeopleprobs
P.S. If you have any great resume writing resources feel free to email me--I feel like it's been a lifetime since I've written one and mine could use a little freshening up!
