1 : cessation of cohabitation between a married couple by mutual agreement with intent that it be permanent; also : LEGAL SEPARATION —compare DIVORCE

Friday, April 2nd will be a day I probably will not forget.
According to Webster's Law Dictionary, I have a separation from employment...their choice...complete with a separation packet and compensation providing I comply with several terms listed in their Agreement of Separation.
I am no stranger to separation...it has happened twice before in my career.
I knew it was coming...I even predicted it to two of my co-workers that morning. No one believed me.
And bam...it happened.
You would have been proud of me...I remained calm during the process...even when asked to leave the premises immediately.
I have been struggling with this all weekend...why is it so personal?
But then I have to think again...all things happen for a reason. Twice before it had positive results.
Perhaps this will have positive results...I have to hope.
