Here I am!!! I'm back!

If you have not heard....I lost my job two weeks ago tomorrow. It sucks. It has totally thrown me for a loop. My whole world is upside down. BUT...I have faith and I KNOW there is a plan for me. I am trying so hard not to get down about it, and consider this a little vacation. All I know is that I need my Shredder friends. :) I love you guys.

I read somewhere, where someone said that only 10% of people who make New Years Resolutions ever see them come to pass.
Well I don't know about you but I'm not waiting until the New Year to resolve to myself that I am in it to win it, that's right I'm sticking with it no matter what. I'm not giving up because of some (temporary) set back.
I'm a Shredder and I'm tougher than that. I read where we are not failures unless we completely give up. That isn't happening today and tomorrow isn't looking like it either.
I'm going to need your help and encouragement, and maybe sometimes a gentle "Get A Grip" comment, but I am resolving- right here right now,
I'm In It To Win It. So there! LOL!!!!

Hey Shari! Gosh, hate to hear that about your job and know it´s not what you wanted, BUT, the Universe always knows best. There will be something so neat, so fabulous for you that then you´ll understand the why. Do take this time for you. Do what you want to, and enjoy being free as a breeze. Wish you were closer and we could walk the streets in Madrid and get skinny just by the sheer force of having fun. Don´t get down. Be positive. Remember that something big is coming. Be ready. And tell us every day how you´re doing. We were all wondering where you had gone....you were missed!
Hugs,
Lynda

Boy, I'm so glad you're back! I was worried that you'd left.
You will be ok but it can be worrisome to go through it. The unknown can be exciting though, too.
I believe you when you say "I'm in it to win it!" and I can hardly wait to see your successful results!

Dear Shari,

I am feeling with you. Your blog caught me tonight as I am still very silent while cooking up a new big thing, biggest ever metamorphosis for myself. I am watching and reading all these wonderful blogs but tonight you made me “comment”:

I am really feeling with you, believe me. Nevertheless, a positive person like you, the wonderful being you are, full of spirit, soul and creativity will make even this situation a success. I know that.

You are a boon for every employer, you are witty and funny, energetic and with lots of will-power. You will make it.
Maybe a small door with a fantastic even better opportunity than your old job is opening soon, just keep your eyes open, you will see it soon.
Please keep your optimistic attitude and your humour.
Maybe in a year you will look back and see it as one of the biggest lucks in life you had: A chance to do and try something new.
We are here for you. Just know that.I love your attitude.

Hugs,

Juli

Shari, Lynda has sent me your way to offer some Shredder TLC. I sure am sorry to hear about your job. I know it cannot be easy one bit.

I'm starting Adam's new RTP system. I know many people have made fantastic transformations during a tough stage in their life. Why don't you join me?

Remember to focus on taking care of yourself as priority number one.

Adam Waters said...

I'm very sorry to hear about your job, especially so close to Christmas. I hope 2009 will see you achieve your new goals and maybe a new direction in your life.

Shari,
I know how hard time can be. Just believe in yourself and the all mighty will provide. Faith is a powerful thing. I will be praying for you and yours.

I have always found that in situations like these, the end result winds up being better than you'd ever expected. You are going to get an opportunity that you wouldn't have gotten otherwise. Hang in there. I know it is tough to lose a job at any time.

Keep up the faith Shari! If the flowers are clothed and the birds are fed, oh so how much more will you be. This is a season of change, enjoy it! Brian Hildebrand
