This morning I am reminding myself to be grateful.
Hot coffee in a Christmas mug.
I found a nearby small sports arena where I can walk indoors for free, 7am – 4pm weekdays. I do walk outdoors in cold weather but it has been colder than average and we had an abrupt rather than gradual shift to winter. When walking at the sports arena, I seem to let go of my other troubles. I am grateful for being present in my moving body.
Several months ago I received a small settlement from my mother’s annuity. My mother passed away nearly 20 years ago so this was very unexpected. I am very grateful for this money today. On November 14, I received my last paycheck from my company. The payment I just received from them was for overtime hours I worked on a Saturday earlier in the month. I expected to be paid for my vacation time.
I will receive severance pay. The HR person did warn me it would take some time. The law allows for time to change your mind regarding the separation agreement. She also warned me that the withholding taxes will be higher.
I also received a letter stating that my medical insurance is ending and I have not yet heard about the alternative coverage. That does scare me.
Don’t worry, I will keep looking for reasons to be hopeful. I am tenacious ,
