Few things in life are as demeaning as showing up for work only to be told your position has been eliminated. Yes, this is my circumstance. Since I had more seniority then most of the people left, I only took one sick day in the past year, and being the perfectionist that I am, always crossed my T's and dotted my I's, I questioned Why me? I was told I fell within the matrix, with no further explanation. What exactly does that mean? Oh, I finally figured it out. It meant I was 58 years old and I had a Mouth and a Voice. Imagine that? I have never been a "YES MAN" or woman as the case may be. Contributing to the common cause makes me happy. I believe in working as a team where everyone contributes freely. Evidently this corporation does not agree. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Wouldn't you agree? I know God did not put me on this earth to fail. He has given me talents that I must now tap into and expand to their full measure. I have no time in my life for negative energy. Having lost my place as a cog in the corporate wheel it's time for me to focus on building a new wheel, a better wheel, a beautiful wheel, one that will take me on new adventures. I invite you to come along with me because adventures are always more fun with friends.
