Today I am living in the gap.
Yesterday I resigned from my remote contract position at a financial technical services company effective after close of business. Today I took the day off to attend to personal tasks and appointments needing to be done on a weekday. Monday I start my new remote contract position in the academic world at a university in the Pacific Northwest.
I am in the gap between jobs, between income streaming in, yet knowing come Monday, I’m back in the flow of financial prosperity. Source is surely with me—I’m not in fear about losing a day’s pay and I feel peaceful. I’m also excited about the change.
Often, when I’ve been between contracts, it’s because a contract ended unexpectedly. Then my job is job hunting, a full-time endeavor, that is unpaid. In turn, that means I’m living off savings (which these days I’m grateful to have some), taking away money for other expenditures or future retirement (if that is ever feasible for me).
I am grateful that for the past couple years I have been in control of my job role destiny, having started looking for new opportunities before the current one I was in ended either as expected or not. Even when I was given three days’ notice that my contract would abruptly end due to COVID, I landed a job within a week. I just have to think that Source is taking care of me and surely demonstrating that It wants only good for me.
It feels freeing to be in the gap this weekend, while being wildly excited about my new role that feels like it may be the best job fit ever for my experience, skills, and talent, not to mention my temperament. I’ve got some social plans this weekend, adding to the richness of my life. I am most grateful to be in this space. Thank You, Spirit!
