Back on track

If our lives were meant to be "on track" then I feel I am now back to where I was going in 2009. Before I was laid off from a job and employer I liked. Before a year of unemployment. Before working a job where I was used and abused. Before I was laid off from that job. Before I took another job at a company on the brink of going under. All while buying a condo, adopting two dogs and doing what I could to be a good husband.

I am now working for a rather large environmental firm in Windsor. I feel I am in a comfort zone. My coworkers are confident, we work together rather easily, and I feel my work, determination, and motivation is being rewarded. I was given an opportunity to succeed and I will make the most of it.

It wasnt easy to get here. I had to overcome jealousy and stubbornness on my part. There are many out there who have lost everything they had. I had to stop worrying about what others had, and appreciate what I have and what I can do with it.

All along my amazing wife supported me, stood by me and never doubted me. I could have been more appreciative of her efforts at the time, but I know what we can do together and hope to be grateful in the future.

Glad to hear things are looking up.

I know several in similar situations. This job economy is rough in a lot of fields.
