For years, I'm one of the few people from my group of friends, that actually LOVES what he does for a living.
Sadly, I need to change that to lovED.
I was a producer on the Fox Business Network show ‘Freedom Watch’. It was a libertarian show, which essentially was an advocate on smaller government principles.
However, for reasons that are WAY out of my hands, Freedom Watch and two other shows have been cancelled. That leaves me, a person who's used to working 55-65 hours a week, out of a job. More importantly, a person who has to stop doing what he loves.
My reaction to the cancellation, and taping of our final show, has actually surprised me. I'm not scared...I'm not concerned...nor am I freaking out.
Maybe it's because I've been looking for a position with more growth.
Maybe it's because I have many contacts who can help me.
Or maybe...I know others who are much worse off than I am.
They have kids to support...I don't even have a pet fish.
Some have severe health issues...I have seasonal allergies.
Others have a mortgage...I pay rent with my 2nd job.
Times seem rough, I won't doubt that. However that just means one thing. That I need to be that one optimistic one of the bunch, and keep the faith.
Things always have the potential to work out for the best when we least expect it. Just as long as you keep fighting hard and don't accept defeat.
So what's next for me?
I honestly have no F'n clue.
What I do know...
I might have been knocked on my ass after round one, but I plan to come out fighting for round two.
