Change can be good....right?
By day, I work as a medical biller. I didn't attend school to learn the trade instead I stumbled on the job and liked the flexibility the hours offered. Plus, it seemed like it didn't use many brain cells and at the time I needed those to manage a family and start my writing career. I started in fall of 2008. Yeah, I know!
Lat week I was told I needed to cut my hours and work part-time. Now, I knew this was coming and after several days of freaking out and crying my eyes out, I relaxed and my hubs and I said we'd figure it out. The plus side, I now had more time to write and do my TMP PR work.
What bothered me was being forced into part-time. I've wanted to reduce my hours for a few years but knew financially I couldn't. Plus, if I voluntarily went part-time, that meant my writing had picked up and I was making money at it and my part time work had increased.
I will survive and live to write another day. I may be wearing a pair of second shoes (*gasps*) but I'll still be here.
Tell me. Have you been dealt a change that wanted to flip your world up side down but didn't let it?
