Today I lost my job
I'm not going to despair
So don't expect me to feel sorry for myself
'Cause today I lost my stress
And all the troubles of my life
I'm going to rise again
Far greater than I was before

Today I lost my job
I'm not going to cry
So don't expect me to breakdown
'Cause today I lost my burden
And everything that is holding me down
I'm going to bounce back
Far better than I used to be

Today I lost my job
I'm not going to die
So don't expect me to kill myself
'Cause today I break free from my bondage
And every obstacle around me
I'm going to make it
Far beyond expectation.

    GREAT attitude. My husband actually quit his job last month because he could not take it any more. He has been looking for local work ever since and it's not panning out so he will have to go back to the old company (who still want him back) If you don't mind driving all your life away in a semi truck, that is the one job anybody can get easily! Good luck in your job search. Did you hear about the poor employees of Twinkies!! Right before xmas too.
