Feeling Exonerated!

Friday, July 11, 2014

Feels good too
Boss found out about S's attitude toward me and asked for a print out of the conversation. I complied and when Boss finally got a hold S it wasn't pretty.
She told her that her attitude had been rude and harsh and uncalled for. Gayle had done absolutely nothing wrong in the way she handles your client She never tried to sway them her way to get the ad. She left that to you. She handled it exactly as she was supposed to. You got it all S! She was praising you for obtaining that size of an ad. How in blazes is that trying to take credit for it?

This same sales person is up for evaluation next week It isn't looking promising. Ouch.

Anyway moving on.....Next up is the Business profile and I already have 30 clients to reconnect with. But she wants us to focus on new ones first and then the last week or two focus on the pick ups. Not problem Already started LOL

    Competition can get ugly when colleagues are selfish! Glad the boss sorted it out and sounds like there's more to come!

Have a good weekend!

HUGS

Enough is Enough!

Friday, July 11, 2014

OK lately we've been having some difficulty with one of our other sales personnel who because she strictly works from commission thinks she can step outside of her "territory" and claim other sales personnel's clients and get credit for and paid for obtaining their advertisements.

Boss has been dealing with her but now she's influencing yet another sales person and yesterday boss put them both in their place not only because they have been doing this but not doing their job to their full potential, and I got the brunt of it and accused of doing the same which I've never done nor would do.

If one of their clients and it IS their client e-mails me with the advertisement because I am at home office, they want or need to run, I am to forward it to the proper sales personnel for that area. Done, I have no problem with that. However, should they call in an advertisement they wish to run I have been told to process it and then forward the completed insertion order and ad copy to the sales person who that client is.
I have no problem with that either. I've been doing that from the beginning.
But yesterday I was told to stop trying to take credit for everything!
So I had to take this sales person in hand and set her straight!. She didn't much like it because I more or less told her the same thing the boss had told her earlier that morning and I at that time had no idea what or that that had been what was said!
So I told her to come down off of her high horse and back to reality and to quit assuming just because this other sales person says it's so. It's the same sales person who is doing it to her not myself. I didn't tell her that of course She would have just ran right back to that sales person and stirred the pot even more.

What I felt like telling her is that just because she received correction from the boss she needn't be trying to dump on me to make herself feel better. Because that's exactly what she was doing.
The other sales person who has been in and with the business for years has said nothing and she received the same correction.
I have said nothing in that I knew what had been done because that is not my place Nor did I receive the same correction because I simply do what is expected of me and stick within my "territory"

They didn't much like it but it got stuck to them yesterday After three months of this, enough is enough!

    Something I don't miss about the working world at all is the politics. Good for you for standing up for yourself.

    Two gals that were making "waves" at work last year may be whittled down to 1 this season.............but still feeling the sting from last year of what those 2 crooked arse's could cook up. With age and more pain this year not sure I can tolerate it much longer.........I have hoped to just keep my mouth shut they would hang themselves but I am beginning to think this younger gal has it down pat in how to be mean.............what a waste of life in doing things like that to others. Whatever happened to "Do unto others"???

From the top of the mountain

Thursday, July 10, 2014

From the top of the mountain, we witness life from a different perspective, bringing us a new awareness.


Mountains have always captured my imagination, calling to me to scale their heights, to circle and worship at their feet, and to pay homage to their greatness. Mountains can be seen from thousands of miles in the distance, and if we are lucky enough to be on top of one, we can see great stretches of the world that surrounds us. Mountains symbolize vision, the ability to rise above the adjacent lowlands and see beyond our immediate world. From the top of the mountain, we are able to witness life from a new perspectiveŚcities and towns that seem so large when we are in them look tiny. We can take the whole thing in with a single glance, regaining our composure and our sense of proportion as we realize how much bigger this world is than we sometimes remember it to be.

Mountains are almost always considered holy and spiritual places, and the energy at the top of a mountain is undeniably unique. When we are on top of a mountain, don't you feel like it's as if you've ascended to an alternate realm, one in which the air is purer and the energy lighter?
Many a human being has climbed to the top of a mountain in order to connect with a higher source of understanding, and many have come back down feeling stronger and wiser. Whenever we are feeling trapped or limited in our vision, a trip to our nearest mountain may be just the cure we need.

    Something else that gives me a feeling similar to one you describe is visiting the Grand Canyon.

    None near here, but lived in Colorado Springs back in the 80's. Talk about beautiful scenery!!! Really made you feel like you part of something so much larger than yourself (well we ARE . .. just sayin')

Thanks for sharing this.

When to IGNORE the Scales

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

We all fight with this one and so many times become discouraged by it SO here are some most valuable tips!

The scale can be a valuable tool in any weight-loss journey. It can tell you where you started and help you track your progress. It's the tool people use most as a measure of success--or failure.

As useful as the scale can be, don't forget that it's just one tool you can use, not the only tool. It's entirely possible for those numbers not to budge, but you find yourself having to tighten your belt because you've lost inches. Used regularly, the scale can help you check in with yourself and help you catch upward swings in pounds before they become double-digit problems. But used too frequently, the scale can drive you crazy.

If you find yourself weighing in often (multiple times per day or every day of the week) you're not doing yourself any favors. There are certain times when weight fluctuates, and seeing every fluctuation can be disheartening and really mess with your head and your motivation.

Many people find it difficult to give up the scale entirely, which is fine--but there are a few times when the scale isn't doing you any favors. Take the results with a grain of salt in these situations.

  I am one of those people that weigh themselves daily. I realize there is a lot of water weight involved but I just want to keep on top of any gains. I am happy when I don't gain! I know that it can be touchy but I got myself a doctors scale - which helps. emoticon

None of us are separate from the whole.

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

When we are feeling lonely, we have lost the idea that we are all one and none of us are separate from the whole.


We all have days when we feel lonely, but the very idea of loneliness comes from the false notion that we are separate and isolated parts in a world filled with other separate, isolated parts. In truth, we can no more be separate from our world than a fish can be separate from the water in which it swims. When we really begin to look at the boundaries we see as so solid, they prove to be, in fact, quite porous. For example, it is not clear exactly where our skin ends and the air begins when we consider how our skin is affected by changes in the quality of the air. When it is dry, our skin becomes dry, and when it is humid, our skin becomes moist and supple.

By the same token, it is difficult sometimes to distinguish the boundary between one person and another, especially when our actions tie us together so inextricably. Every move we make has an effect that touches all the people around us. On an even more subtle level, when we share space with another person, we often pick up on their energy, feeling how they feel and attuning to them, whether we mean to or not. This is what we mean when we say a mood or a feeling is contagious. We cannot help but be part of the realities of the people around us because we take form from the same energetic force, and this force unifies all life. This force is the light that all the great mystics and gurus encourage us to move toward, and it is the light we will dissolve into when we move beyond our individual egos.

If loneliness is a temporary condition based on an incomplete understanding of what we are made of, we can think of its presence as a catalyst for exploring our ideas about reality. We can respond by testing the boundaries we believe separate us from the life within and all around us. If we test them, we will discover that they are not so solid after all and that we can never really be alone.

    This is a thought-provoking blog. I have had moments of lonliness -- we moved here away from my family and friends -- almost 7 yrs. ago. Not an easy transition!

IT is so true that moods are contagious. As a Mom and Wife, I find it daunting, but the reality is my mood affects the mood of the household. As it was said in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, the man may be the head of the house, but the woman is the neck, and she can move the head anyway she wants. In other words, it is soooo true that we influence our environment and those who share it with us!
