Gratitude not Attitude
Is it Friday yet? Seriously. I'm about done. Work issues have left me very down..Tuesday was about the most depressed I've been recently since either a. we thought we had mold growing in the house or b. I thought my dog Pooter was dying (thank God not).
I've gone from a meaningful job to a meaningless job. I'm trying as hard as I can to make it meaningful and to have a good attitude and just to be grateful this is my biggest problem. But the shadow of already announced layoffs to come and the deathnell of company emails about "we know you are all concerned and we are trying to come up with the best way to align positions, but meanwhile 'keep working you still have a job to do .'
I'm too tired to post more or read blogs or comment and I'm thinking I'm heading to bed now..but here is what I'm grateful for:
I am happy and proud that I did not eat over this. I am so glad I danced at Zumba Monday, did kickboxing class Tuesday where my trainer had me do knee kicks for a full minute encouraging me to take it out on him, , took a walk in the sun today, did a weight training class tonight and went to Bible study. I am grateful for all the blessings I have-my husband and animals and home and church and family. I am grateful for my job and when I do get to sometimes help people. I am grateful for life.
I'm a Geek for many things: Food, Pajamas, Coffee, Chocolate, Movies, Books, getting and being fit and healthy, 80's music, and the list goes on and on .....A nurse, a diabetic, I've lost over 130 lbs and have more to go . And I actually enjoy working out.
I chose the names of Ms. PJ Geek and PJ and Pounds because I have happy memories of childhood, coming in dirty and sweaty from playing in the yard. Then taking a bath, putting on a fresh nightgown and feeling all new again . I felt like a princess. Fresh renewal. .........
All names and situations will be changed to protect the innocent and the guilty, and so I can keep my job. While I am a nurse, I do not intend this to be a blog with specific directions or guidelines for healthcare. And.....though I have a college degree, that was a long time ago ya'll, and I don't remember proper punctuation or grammar.
