It’s been almost exactly one year since I was unceremoniously ejected from my longtime job. I suppose I went through all the normal stages of anger, denial…anger and anger.
The fact that the company’s severance package mandated I be paid for every year of my employment has made it a nice comfy year of unemployment, but I am ready to try to something new. As I’ve groaned about previously, I haven’t had a great deal of success.
Today, however, I’m feeling a small tinge of optimism.
Shortly before embarking on my usual exercise in futility of applying for jobs online, my phone rang. It was a former boss whom I last spoke with a day or two after I was broomed from my previous job. He wants to talk about a potential opportunity.
I don’t know what it would involve. I don’t know if it’s a full-time gig. I don’t know much, but my phone rang and these days I score that as a win.
We’re meeting for coffee on Friday.
Let us pray.
