Yesterday was the five year anniversary of losing my job back east and shortly after that, the decision was made to move to LA. It was a decision, in hindsight, I wish I had made many years earlier. I’ll never fully understand why I lost my job and that will always bother me, but I don’t hold any ill will. I would have just liked to have been given a real reason.
There are several events in our lives that change us. Some we can control and some we can’t. Although we may not always know what the reason is or understand it, things happen for a reason. I have always believed that. I don’t know why I lost my job, but maybe it was to force me to move to LA. Maybe this is where I’m supposed to be. Maybe I’m supposed to be crazy Uncle Rob from California. Whatever the reason, it’s in the past and I can’t change it and looking back, I don’t know that I would want to.
