Escape to the Desert
When the earth got yanked from beneath my feet after that unexpected job loss (elimination, technically), family stepped in and invited me to escape to the southwestern desert for a total brain reboot. So here I am after landing in Albuquerque, New Mexico yesterday afternoon. And while I know this whole experience is the perfect zen-like place to regroup and get back into the game, I also know that stabbing feeling deep in my chest will take some time to fade away. But at least being here is helping me achieve my goals of 1.) Not going into Hermit Mode and 2.) Moving forward and attacking my job search with a vengeance.

I can relate to the "not go into hermit mode" statement. I'm fighting that myself. I make a date for myself to go out in public and hang out to work on my job search stuff. McDonald's at lunch time was yesterday's destination and not a smart choice on my part! Enjoy the brain reboot and time with family!!

Thank you for posting a comment and relating to me in the "hermit" thing. It's tempting, but we shall fight it all the way! Going anywhere helps, McDonald's or otherwise. Fortunately, I am being spoiled with the company of my family in their amazing desert oasis.
