i got fired last monday.
it’s fine, it’s cool. i had another job lined up by wednesday, but for a while there, i was feeling pretty down on myself, you know?
it’s hard not to, especially when they let you go with a reasoning of “well, you’re just not a good fit”. what does that mean?
hell if i know.
what i do know, however, is that the universe has my back.
why else would i have landed a great spot at a local company that plays into my strengths? i’m really excited to get started.
i also know that it’s been raining every day since i lost my job and that it really feels like my whole life is being cleansed.
rain is incredibly cleansing, you know? we forget or don’t stop to realize it, but it’s one of the most cleansing things in the world. after all, it washes off the stagnant dirt and grime of hibernation and winter every spring.
my neighbors may think i’m a little nuts as i sat myself down on my mat, directly in the middle of the rain to meditate one morning, but i’m not exagerating when i say it’s the most free and calm i’ve felt in a long time.
dance in the rain. who cares who’s watching?
maybe they’ll even join you.
