Redundancy On The Horizon

How I wish I could accept the words in this photo and just carry on with my day, without anxiety. I recently found out that the company that I work for is being bought out. Initially this was just a formality, but I may actually be about to lose my job.
My anxiety is though the roof, how will we cope? Can we pay all our bills? Can I cope without my job to keep me motivated? Willni find another part time position?  All these questions are flying round in my head. I have done the practical task, my CV is up to date and ready for any perspective applications. We will rein in our spending, as every penny is far more valuable than it was a week ago. Yet none of this will do anything to shift the worry. I simply have to sit it out until a decision is made by management,  when that will be, I have no idea. I have been made redundant in the past and it turned out to be a great opportunity for me. I just wish I knew what lies ahead, so I could see if this will be positive or a huge test. I don’t deal well with change when it’s out of my control and I don’t know what is happening. So my bag is packed for the gym tonight, to keep me on the right track and get rid of some of this frustration I’m throwing in an extra training session. I have a feeling there may be a lot of daily sessions in the next few weeks!
