Tuesdays Thoughts

Hey there ladies!! Just wanted to stop by and tell all of you THANKS for all of the warm and caring comments you all left regarding my job. Things have been a little bit better. My supervisor has been trying to be nice lately, even though I am 110% sure it is more for other's benefit than mine. But heck, I will take what I can get!! LOL!!

I have decided that I am going to start looking for something else. Which, I am nervous about but I think it is a choice I need to make. Granted, I don't know how I feel about giving up my 4 weeks of vacation, etc. But sometimes, your happiness is worth it.

It still amazes me how many double standards there are out in the corporate world. As some of you may know, I work downtown St. Louis and with the All Star Game being held in St. Louis this year, things around my work building have been absolutely CRAZY the past few days. But it is funny that "the supervisor" has "snuck out" of work everyday this week so him and "the girlfriend" can join in all of the All Star festivities but yet nothing was said to him but yet we all have had to stay until our normal times and then sit in traffic for an hour more than normal.

Oh well, I have been doing so much "soul searching" the past few weeks and I have decided that I am not going to be negative anymore. That place is not worth my health. And ever since the other week, I have felt this overwhelming feeling of anxiety. And I have decided that I need to just start enjoying my life. That I am going to start trying to have a more positive attitude and not dwell on the negative.

Do any of you ever feel this way? That you are letting the negative things in life bring you down entirely too much? And if so, what do you do to stop yourself and start seeing the good in life?

I also am tired of the negative. I hope both our lives get better and fast! Good luck with your job search.

I struggle with the negative too! I have also left a job for the very same reasons and less money was worth it! It seems as though once you get these feelings towards someone it is almost impossible to change your feelings. I wish you lots of luck on the job search.

My husband and I just about stopped watching all news shows after the election; it was so depressing to see the state of the economy, the country, and the world in general. We catch headlines on Fox in the morning and the first five or ten minutes of the local news - that's pretty much it.

We're also doing more to encourage ourselves - long walks with uplifting music on the iPod, more time golfing and sewing, spending time with friends. My faith in God has really been a blessing.

Good luck finding a job, and I hope a good one comes for you soon. You don't need the stress of the current one.

Sounds like you have been through the ringer lately. I hope that things get better for you. I would FOR SURE get out of your current workplace--for your emotional well being. I do a lot praying and also try to only think positive thoughts...sometimes you are your own worst enemy with the negative thinking. Stop over for a visit when you can.
