i got fired yesterday

I'm not even upset. 
Mostly relieved. 
But blind-sighted. 

They made some absurd accusations. 
I don't think they even believed them. 
I think they just wanted an excuse. 
Because the accusations were that absurd. 
I don't think they even expected me to believe that they believed them.  

But let them have their narrative. 

I love the hospitality industry. 
I have worked at hotels for about five years collectively. 
I love the work. 
And I used to love this particular location. 
But about four months ago, management changed. 
A lot of people that made the job enjoyable left. 

And after giving a lot to this job,
and being told subtly that I was in consideration for a management position, 
then being told that the job wasn't being opened up,
to then seeing an ad for the position on Craigslist.

It was no longer a place I gave myself to. 
It was a place I showed up, did the work, and got paid. 
The connection was severed. 
I was doing the bare minimum.
I admit it. 

I'm not upset. 
I'm upset at the accusations that are blatant lies. 
But I'm doing okay right now. 

The past few months have been a whirlwind. 
They have been heavy, and busy, and fulfilling, and exhausting. 
I will write about it all another time. 

I am going to do an October challenge. 
I'm making one up. 
Probably focusing on digital art. 
I have a drawing pad that needs dusting off. 

I'm grateful for a lot right now. 
I'm lonely too. 

The good and the bad in life aren't felt at separate times. 
It's all happening at the same time. 
 I'm happy to feel it.
