I'm not one for uncertainty, preferring to know exactly what to expect and what's going on. So it is with some trepidation that I approach the end of the month, when my current terms of employment will come to an end with, as yet, nothing in place to keep me going.
Being made redundant can be a blow to one's confidence but, I'm feeling very positive about it in a number of ways:
- I'm parting with my employer on very good terms, with no animosity or malice from either side.
- I feel it's about time for me to try a new environment - to put all that I've learned into practice in another setting and made a difference somewhere else.
- I have confidence in my own abilities and expertise and I think that that is worth an awful lot - both in terms of one's outlook and how one is perceived by others.
So, that's where I am right now. Check back at the end of the month to see what exciting, if uncertain, direction my life takes next.
