Allah got me fired (2)

    As I said, it had needed an act of god to get me to leave my job. A job filled with pressure, stress, under-appreciation, daily fire-drills, being blamed for everything, not having time to scratch my head, buried under tons and tons of endless nags from worthless incompetent "bosses", oh and 4 bosses to satisfy, bad pay, hopeless outlook and absolutely no way out?

    What's not to love!?

    Apparently God has other plans for me...

    I was really looking forward to, since I've been taxed to hell and back in support of the system. It was time to get some back. But, before I was able to collect my first life changing unemployment check, I started working again in the weirdest of ways!

    I got called to interview one day, the very next day I was offered something straight out of a dream! Not asked but literally begged to accept.

    I'm not trying to boast my experience, I swear I am not. I was getting ready to entrench and work my way for long term unemployment as people and the news depressed the heck out of me. With very little hope for any change.

    The guys were desperate. I was too, especially since I've never been unemployed ever since I was a kid. I've always had at least one job. For the first time in my employment history, I held my grounds, despite my need. I negotiated successfully, employing everything I have learned over the years, utilizing every last ounce of skill and wit and I managed to land a better offer. I got exactly what I asked for.

    After my weird first day, I started crying and praying to God, for the weirdest event in my whole life. I got fired, to be rehired 5 days later and get paid 150% my old salary. Doing less work, with less stress, and way more appreciation. But don't let that fool you. It's not the quantity of work that counts. It's the Quality of work. This on its own made everything worthwhile. The nice paycheck made it even sweeter.

    Work started promptly, I had to devise a plan, and strategize my priorities quickly. In the first week, I saved the new job over 700k, and it went better from that point onward. But the stress, was still not there. Something I will always appreciate.

    Now, I'm spending more time doing the things that I love, spending my time with my family, and seeing my friends since I've been missing in action for so long. Now I'm enjoying everything that I didn't have time for

    I have to stress again, that if I wasn't let go from my older job, I would have never done it on my own. Despite all the negativity of that old job, I was in familiar water, well within my comfort zone, thinking, it must be worse out there.

    Turns out, it's not worse! In this case, it was way better and way more rewarding, I just didn't even try.

    Thank you God. It wouldn't have happened without your blessings.

    Thanks also goes to my dear wife, it wouldn't have happened without her by my side. Her strong belief in me made me blast through this too. Thank you
