There is one thing that everyone can know is true, change is certain. Things change all the time. Sometimes it happens at the push of a button and other times it’s the natural process of time. When changes come how do you face them? When the change is joyous it may be easy to face. But, when changes make life harder it can lead to fear, regret and struggle. But, it doesn’t have to you can find peace even when life changes.
For us, change is taking place due to job circumstances beyond our control. Today, the company my husband has worked diligently for, for over 13 years will be closing his division and he will be the one to push the final button. Literally, the push of a button.
He works in television news broadcast production, a 24 hour statewide cable news organization. As the last show they will ever air finishes up at 12:00 Noon, he will push the master control button signalling the change from on-air to off-air. Oh, how I wish I could stand beside him as he makes that change because I know it will be a difficult and emotional moment for him. He has strived ever so hard to create a seamless and quailty product for so long, only to let it go with the push of a button.
This change marks not only the end of this particular TV News organization, but it marks the end of his job with that company as well. It marks the change that we as a family now face in that he will be unemployeed for an indeterminate amount of time. It marks the change of financial security for our family and many other families as well.
As political heads talk about change in this country with the Presidential election, I continue to think to myself about how out of touch they all are with real people in America. Instead, as September rolls in and the country celebrates labor day, some 40 more people will be filing for unemployment, because of the change that comes with this pushing of a button.
That’s a Wrap.
