Inspiration Friday: Recession Edition

I found out yesterday that the very tiny company I work for will soon be starting layoffs. It could be “any day now.” Yikes. I am one of three people who could potentially be let go. We don’t know when it is coming. We don’t know how many of us will lose our jobs. I should definitely be freaking out–and in many ways I am–but I’m trying to remain positive by reminding myself that I was only going to be at this job until I finished massage therapy school anyway and that my current position is hardly my employment ideal. So today I’m feeling inspired by all of the things I’d rather being doing than working for this company. Granted, if I’m let go I won’t have the financial resources to do some of these things, but they serve as a nice reminder that my job is just a job, not the source of happiness and inspiration in my life.

Spend a month in Nerja, Spain

    My Spanish professor in college was from Nerja and he always would talk about how it was the most beautiful place in the world. Since then, I have definitely wanted to go there, and it is one place that I would love to visit if I ever make it back to Spain.
