It's about 1:15 am, Saturday, August 31st. I'm sitting here watching YouTube videos, feeling inspired by what I'm watching, and decided to do a late night post of a personal issue.

Yesterday, I had the biggest change in my life but I knew it was only a matter of time until it happened. I WAS TERMINATED! That's right, I was fired from my job of almost 4 years (October 9th). I won't go into detail of why I was or what sparked it because to be honest I could write a book based on the last 4 years.
On Tuesday, I was called around 3 pm to come sign a paper. I got dressed, hopped in my car, went down the street to my job. I was getting placed on ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE until Friday at 10 am when I'd have to come in for a meeting for the final decision. That moment, I knew exactly what was going to happen. There were only two options: get suspended additional days or get fired. I was leaning more to getting fired because of other surrounding issues. I prepared myself for today because I knew what the end result was going to be. I went in around 10 am, we went into an office, and this was my "lecture":

"I've looked over everything. I have to say, I'm disappointed but I have made the decision to go ahead an terminate you."
I nodded, said okay, signed a paper, and I was on my merry way. 

I wasn't even in that office 5 minutes! I told my supervisor *with some waterworks* as we walked out that I was expecting this and it's actually for the best. I was upset because I truly will miss *some* of the people I worked with in my profession. It was almost the end of lunch, I went back and turned in my uniforms. I walked out of that office with my friend, turned to her and said, "A HUGE WEIGHT HAD BEEN LIFTED"!

I don't want anyone to feel sorry for me because I AM MOVING FORWARD! This will give me a chance to work on my businesses as an AVON Independent Sales Representative & Paparazzi Accessories Independent Consultant (both are separate companies and have no affiliation with each other). I can also focus on getting re-enrolled for college in Spring 2014. 

I hope all of you stay with me on this journey as I focus on the next chapter in my life. I might designate a day for personal postings, as I'm going to restructure my blog to keep consistent. After all, this is the "Life of a Social Beauty".
