Because the Universe is abundant, the job that I just quit came along at the right time exactly when I needed it. I was underemployed for years. Being underemployed is maybe better than being unemployed. But for years my work life had me feeling under-stimulated and underpaid. Something was always wrong with every other job. Maybe there was no paid time off. Maybe there was some paid time off that I used up way too fast. Sometimes I didn’t like the people and the neighborhood where the job was.
No matter what, something was always off.
But finally one day I was blessed with a job that seemed like it would work for me. Not only did this organization offer lots of vacation time I had the incredible fortune that my work schedule was only four days a week. For me, four days of work followed by three days off is extremely palatable. The fact that I had paid vacation and personal days as well was enough for me to feel like I had arrived.
But things changed.
