An Update On Me

So many of you have continued to show concern for me and for my situation. I appreciate your inquires into how I am doing! It is so comforting to know that complete strangers wish you well.! It makes the mean and deceitful people seem petty in comparison to those with kind hearts!

The latest update in the saga that is my life is not a good one. The company I have worked for since moving to Florida in 2002, Bally Total Fitness, declared bankruptcy. It announced on Wednesday that it would close 20 locations nationwide.

One of those 20 locations is the club where I work. On January 9, 2009 I will no longer have a job. And since my ex finace' isn't around anymore, and since he took 3/4 of my savings when he left, I find myself in a huge bind.

I have taught fitness classes for the last 10 years. Now it appears I will have to put that on hold so that I can get a job that pays full time. I have to pay my bills. Then, if I can fit a class or two a week into that schedule I will try to find an opening at another club.

This, on top of what has already happened is certainly a lot to have to bear. I am so grateful to all my friends (at work as well as here on the internet.) I know that I have people who are concerned about me and my welfare helping me to look for job openings in the area.

I am trying to be upbeat about this whole thing. Everyone says that I am better off without that worthless SOB I thought was my friend and my soulmate. He was only holding me back!!!

Wow, it is even getting worse than you thought! I know what it is to loose your job, certainly in this way. I can say nothing to cheer you up. In one way or the other you must get through this, but I have noscenario for it. Just can keep my fingers crossed for you that you will find quickly another job so that the finances keep a bit flowing. My dear, life isn't very nice for you at the moment. Only can send you a big hug, which isn;t helping much to solve the situation, I know. Keep us posted on how you are doing, it must and it will change, I'm sure. But for the moment it doens't look well. Keep hold to your strenth, you have it in you!

And you will soar now. Keep that positive attitude as it is the strongest stair on the ladder of success. I will keep you in my prayers that you are able to find a job real soon. I know it is difficult to accept everything that is happening to you at this time. Hope that you can continue looking up as that is surely where it will go for someone as sweet and generous as yourself.

Thank you, ladies, for the words of encouragement. I have good days and I have bad days. I know it will eventually get better. I just need to do all I can on this end in the meantime!
