What we feared last year came true. My Guy was laid off from work just before we were going to leave for Christmas vacation. As a friend said ‘How heartless are people who can lay off workers just before Christmas and then go home to their family and enjoy their holiday?’ I could never understand that either.
Luckily, we had already paid for the airline tickets and all of the Christmas presents we wanted to buy for the family we were going to visit. My Guy and I decided before we left that we were going to forget what happened and enjoy ourselves as we’d planned. So off we went and we had a wonderful time.
However, since coming home, it’s been a little tougher to get back to living with some energy. I’ve been uninspired and a little depressed. However, as I say in my journal page, I don’t want to live like that any more. I need to stay hopeful and positive for the both of us.
So the word of this year is Optimism.
