Hang in there Oily, going through the desert stinks, but He'll get you through to the other side.
Time has a way off moving on and sometimes so must we. Sometimes life gives us a wall to climb but something tells me when you and your family get on the other side it will be a better place. Good Luck Brother
Then I guess it will be great, as long as your enjoying whatever comes next , or at least learning something new about yourself or your life...then you'll be in for some of that long term gain!
Why didn't you try to stay and "go for broke" and see if something came up over there?
your 57 you need to start living a little diffenet than if your 27...that job ending could have been the setup for next phase in life to unfold....and you might be leaving , just as God is setting you up for something you could have never foresaw! ......he might be staring down at you wondering where are you going????...you can never predict just want might unfold,
....if you had some form of savings why not stick around to see for a year or so,, you seemed to like it over there, possible he brought you there for a reason???
a path might have opened up right in front of you! ...just as you hop off of it???
either way I hope something wonderful happened, at least you know something's about to happen!
It's sad, but better times will come!
Sorry to hear that news, Oily. I went through a fairly major career change a few years ago and it is quite unsettling. A couple of points that I'd offer are:
- Don't underestimate your own skills or their value.
- Think about transferreble skills - there's a lot of things to do out there and you may find a new niche in a surprising place.
- Do not be afraid. Just as my career change was approaching, the Archbishop of York said that during a 'pause for thought' on the radio. I'm not a religious person but it was a powerful and important message.
Good luck and keep us posted on how it's going.
Hey Oily , i have all the faith in the world for ya , if you can set up shop in a sand dune and accomplish all that you have done there , i'm sure you can / will do it anywhere . But indeed , relocation is a bitch and takes alot out of ya , so you being a guy that has helped so many on this site and even spear headed donations / funding for folks in need on here , i hope someone pops up to make your road a little easier . you are deserving of it . i wish you all the best .
and hey . don't discount Canada , the Canadian oils sands are making leaps and bounds in the industry . a lil different that what you are doing ,, and there's sand there too if ya miss it ;-)
