The Big Gap, part two

This post is continuing The big gap, part 1.

Being in a gap: how does it feel? As the Covid-19 lockdown continued, people started to relax a little bit and myself I got a little bit too relaxed – till my job was gone.

But I was prepared. I knew what to do and sent my job applications right away, no need to start crying over spilled milk, life goes on.

I couldn’t have managed it this way if I didn’t experiende the loss of a job before. That time I felt like my world was going down. I was overwelmed and couldn’t cope for a while. My relationship went really bad too because my partner was mocking me for losing my job. At that moment I have realised that there is no future for the two of us. Looking back it seems to me that I was lacking the proper tools and the proper reactions to handle that. Well, we all get wiser in time …

This slowing down of the public life and of parts of the economy affected my personal life in a way that a diet does. The chance was now so palpable to invest more time and energy in my home, in my cooking skills, my work-sleep balance 😉 I have watched so many shows and movies as in the previous two years combined – satisfying my brain’s thirst for stories and data.

Now I actually get the chance of a great job and I feel a lot more motivated – even excited! – about the new beginning that is slowly coming.
