Anyway, I remembered the fun, the optimism of the internet boom. Ever since then I have been cynical that the company I was working for would actually succeed. My cynicism was baseless to begin with, but it's hard not to be after reading about hundreds of people that could be you being laid off, companies shutting down,etc. I realized that what's missing in my life was optimism for the future. After hearing some very positive news about my company earlier this week, and realizing that that has been what is missing, I feel a lot better. More energetic and happy, perhaps. I realized I didn't have to live in fear of the axe as I did before, and can enjoy the benefits of a company that can not only burn cash, but can also pay its bills.
It's a good feeling.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
