Default A sad but exciting day.......

well folks, i am unemployed. today was my last day at the office. in the next couple of months i will either buy a chiropractic office or open up from scratch. i have alot of emotions that i am feeling right now......anxiety, fear, excitement, but most of all sadness. the guys pictured below have been like family for me the last 2 yrs and i hated having to say goodbye. but ambition is telling me that i have to get out and get it while i can afford to take risks. i really am not used to not having a job, so i really dont know what to do with my days. i may do some cover work in some offices, because i may go crazy if i dont. oh well, end of chapter one. lets hope it continues to get better......

Rick - I understand exactly what you're saying, and I'm sure you do well regardless where you end up. I know you won't be able to sit idle for long. Might have to put you on personal contract to keep me from cracking my own neck .

Similar note... My firm is being bought out by a larger company which should close in the next couple of days. Kind of sad coming into the office and finding all the company logos pulled of the building, the walls, etc. It's a little weird in seeing something you've invested a lot of time and hard work change in such a significant way; I know where you're coming from.

Go get 'em.

Rick,

I wish you the best. On a more selfish note, I hope you do not become so busy, you cannot check ClubLexus.

Doc,

Best of luck, I too have some idea of what it's like to start completely over. As an employee of our family business, we have seen it all, from walkouts to Chapter 11 reorg..........just remember, that which does not kill you can only serve to make you stronger. I'm sure everything will work out for the best!

Good luck,
Eric

For each change we always go through:

denial->resistance->exploration->commitment

Maybe for a while you denied that you wanted to leave, but then maybe you wanted to leave but resisted it for a while, then you explored leaving, and now you have made the commitment. CONGRATS!

I feel like your adventure is about to really begin...

My adventure began when I decided to emigrate at 19 from England to Canada by myself!

Hope we can get together soon, DrRick.

Ahhh, J. Alexander's, always conveniently located right near P.F. Changs. I ate there once in Cincinatti; nice place!
