Survivor

Today was the BIG day at work. Layoffs. Luckily I managed to escape the chopping block. Everyone in my little group was spared. A woman in another group that's linked to us was let go. After 19 years. The upside is that the company gives 2 weeks of severance for every year of service. That's 38 weeks. She's the type to go out and immediately look for another job. I'm not. I would take off for 2 months, travel, then look for work.

But this time of uncertainty has provided another wake-up call. I've got to get moving on my book...on my life. I've gotta be in control of my destiny. I can't live in fear of having the "higher ups" determine my fate.
