The incredible drama of life!

Friday, June 17, 2011

“If you take a deep breath and look around, 'Look what's happening to me!' can become 'Look what's happening, period!' And what's happening? The incredible drama of life! And we're in it!”

I am. I am so tired in spirit, mostly Dealing with the mental stress of this job is starting to take its toll on me and what is ironic is it is so totally uncalled for. Most of it is repercussion; the boss rides her on something she did and has nothing to do with me so she has to find fault with me. The oldest employment scenario in the world. The problem is it's every time I come into work. So what is it that she is or isn't doing that he is riding her on that often.
I'm not claiming to be perfect I am far from perfect but when I'm working for someone else I always give 200% I have never run into this on any other employment I've had.
She's a have decent friend outside of work but as a *employer*.... she totally SUCKS!

But it's been 36 hours and today I've regrouped and whatever is eating at her or getting her down I am not going to let it effect me or drag me down any longer. I know I'm doing what needs to be done and more. So let her gripe and complain if it makes her “happy”. I'm going in there with a rested and fresh spirit today.
And if she comes at me with something that she figures she has on me? I'm just going to smile and respond with Ya know Sally you go ahead and point out what you think you've found fault with if that's what makes your day. I've done my job and done it beyond expectations I know it and anything you have to say about it isn't going to change that. So you go ahead and continue looking for and finding fault because you're sure to find something just to justify/satisfy your pessimism. You have a great day.

    Unfortunately, there are always going to be more pessimistic people than optimistic. Think of it as God giving you the chance to the other cheek. You just keep doing what you know is right and everything will work out.

    If someone wants to find fault, they will. I have a couple of colleagues who aren't happy unless they're miserable and bringing other people down. There's no positivity, it's all about them and their problems and possibly the worse thing is that neither of them are doing anything to to help themselves. The best thing is, I don't live next door to them!
Keep going - keep re-grouping...

My Retreat from it all; A Happy, Serene, and Healthy Home

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Include all 5 senses while making a home, doing so provides safe haven for your evolving body and soul.

Your home is your oasis. Through your efforts, your house or apartment can become both a private sanctuary and a welcoming, serene, and healthy place to live in and visit. An organized and comfortable home can have a calming effect on you, your family, and guests, as well as be your personal escape from the rest of the world. Creating this nurturing space isn’t difficult. Even a household that includes young children or multiple animals can be a serene and peaceful place. In just a few minutes, you can make a number of changes that can turn your home into a safe and comfortable haven that you can be proud to share with your loved ones and friends.

One way to fill your house or apartment with calming energy is to imbue it with a peaceful ambiance that nurtures all five senses. Soft lighting and soothing colors like blue, purple, and green can make a space feel warm and inviting, while pleasant and calming aromas such as lavender and vanilla can positively affect moods. Peaceful sounds, such as running water in a fountain or gentle chimes can uplift and clear the space, while clearing clutter and making the most of open space can ease internal turmoil and dispel negative feelings. The physical objects in your home as well as your home itself can retain the energy of previous owners and the object’s creator. You can give your household’s energy a lift by visualizing white light surrounding our home, symbolically sweeping out residual energy, or smudging your home with cleansing sage.

The changes you make to your home can be as unique as you are and may involve utilization of space, lighting, new furniture, decorating, feng shui, or ritual. But what you do is not as important as being clear in your intention to set up your household as a soothing and refreshing place to be. Make your home a place of comfort, and you will feel nurtured and cared for whenever you are there.

Ready to pull out my hair and then.......

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Upset and frustrated because I've tried everything I can think of to solve a problem, and nothing has worked. Aside from gagging her or smothering her what's next? That's how exasperated I am with her!


I could slap her silly with a dead cold emoticon but it's highly unlikely it'd knock any common sense into her!

The tension and stress at my work place is so heavy right now I'm ready to take it roll it up in a ball and throw it right back in the face of the person who's causing it.
Have you ever had a boss or supervisor who you couldn't please no matter how you tried or what you did?
Well I`ve got one and I`ve already confronted her with her negativity and it hasn`t done any good. Well it helped for about 24 hours. It doesn`t matter how well I do my job she finds something to bitch about. Pardon my `french`but there`s no other word for it!
These five days she has had off have been blissful yet still stressful because I`ve been dreading her return and reactions,.
I CLEANED that entire building in five days pitched and tossed got rid of garbage, reorganized spit polished every room swept and scrubbed floors upstairs and down and windows You name it i did it and her first words when she walked through the door yesterday....
This place stinks! Yeah of cleaners and disinfectant you ungrateful wench! You know what... I walked out on her. I just turned around and walked out the door. She was blathering on about whatever and I just walked out, went to my car and went home.
I left her standing in the entrance with her mouth hanging open. Looked good on her.
So today when I go in for my four hours I'm going to take care of the two rooms that are occupied and that's it. Nothing more nothing less. See how she likes them apples.

But ya know after all the bullya I can come here and get a lift.
Yesterday I logged on and went directly to my e-mails and there in my inbox was
LIGHTHEARTED65 leaving this message on my sparkpage!
Hi! I find myself looking forward to your inspiring messages, even the grueling exercises, lol. I must have been in a cave the last couple of years. I am so glad a friend finally let me in on spark people. I have neglected myself for a long time . I am excited to get healthy again and am already finding that I have more energy. Thank you so much for the motivating messages! I will be looking forward to tomorrow

And LOVESWEET sending me a goodie with this note:
I am giving you this relaxation music because you have in so many ways, taught me how to like myself. You have been with me through some very difficult times, you have always made me feel like I counted. It is people like you that make me want to be a better person to others. Thank you for being there when "I" really needed you. I have just received word that the Judge has already signed off on the probate, if all goes well I will be able to move on to Texas by the end of June or the first part of July. I will continue to be with sparks. Have yourself a Blessed day!

And it made everything alright again.

    Lordie set your standards so high, and then *they* come to expect that and more from you..I would just have a heart to heart with this person, and ask exactly what your duties are, I used to work like you, my employers sure got their money's worth and more, but like you they keep trying to get more from you...pays off in the end though, got a nice raise, and a little more respect after my talk lol! I worked for a family run Floral business.

    Working on a serene atmosphere here. I cleaned out the freezer yesterday, changing the beds today and going through some things to get rid of. You really are a true inspiration. This is about the only team I really participate in. Thank you for being here.

    Maybe reflect on the situation tomorrow morning when you are (probably) a little more clear-headed/logical. Have you tried be direct with her about the problem and what you think she should do differently? Hope you figure it out!

I SO Need to do this!;RETREAT!

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Going on retreat is a time to cocoon so that we may emerge ready to return to our lives with a new perspective.

Occasionally, we need to pause - and step away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. One way to do this is to get away from our daily life and go on retreat. Far more than a vacation, a retreat offers us time to ourselves to rest, heal, reflect, and renew our spirit. It is a time to cocoon so that we may emerge renewed, refreshed, and ready to return to our everyday lives with a new perspective. A retreat gives us time for uninterrupted meditation so that we may go deep within and spend time with ourselves.

A retreat may offer quiet, solitude, and sometimes even silence. Retreats often take place in humble dwellings with simple fare so that our senses may be reawakened to the beauty of unadorned tastes and the sights and sounds of nature. When we spend days in contemplation, we can more easily hear our heart when it speaks to us. We also are able to really listen when a bird sings, deeply breathe in the smell of flowers, grass, or earth, and delight in a soft breeze blowing on our cheek. When we go on retreat we have time to connect to the sacred geometry of a labyrinth, discover epiphanies through asanas, or take a long, reflective walk through the woods where we can give each step our full attention.

Without the pull of deadlines, relationships, the Internet, or other media, we give ourselves time to go deep into our own solitude where we can fully reflect on our joys, sorrows, and fears, owning and releasing them as needed. We may even come to know and understand our life path more deeply. Hopefully, when we return home, we can take a little bit of this time alone back with us and create the space for deep reflection on a daily basis. We also may come back to our life renewed and ready to take on the world. The beauty of going on retreat is that no matter where you go or how long you stay, you’ll always meet yourself when you get there


Sharing your Fears

Monday, June 13, 2011

No matter how brave, strong, or levelheaded we are, sometimes we all get scared.

Life can take us on a roller coaster ride full of highs and lows and twists and turns. Even for those of us who enjoy unexpected thrills, it’s frightening to suddenly find ourselves heading for a deep plunge. Yet, it happens to all of us. At these moments, it is important to remember that you are not alone in your experiences. No matter how brave, strong, or levelheaded we are, sometimes, we all get scared.

Our fears may revolve around our physical safety, particularly if we are not feeling well, living under difficult circumstances, or doing work that exposes us to hazardous conditions. Or, we may be experiencing financial woes that are causing us to be fearful about making ends meet. We may also fear the loss of a loved one who is sick, or we may be scared of never finding someone special to spend our life with. We may be scared to start at a new school, begin a different job, move to a new town, or meet new people. Whatever our fears are, they are valid, and we do not need to feel ashamed or embarrassed that we are, at times, afraid.

It may be comforting to know that everyone gets scared, and it is perfectly OK. Sometimes just acknowledging our fears is enough to make us feel better. And while it sometimes takes a lot more to ease our mind, we can console ourselves with the knowledge that life can be scary at times. Giving ourselves permission to be scared lets us move through our fears so we can let it go. It also makes it alright to share our fears with others. Sharing our apprehensions with other people can make our fears less overwhelming because we are not letting them grow inside of us as pent up emotions. Sharing our fears also can lighten our burden because we are not carrying our worries all by ourselves. Remember that you are not alone.

    You are so right. internalising anxiety is one of the worst triggers to well being. It makes it almost impossible to conduct a normal joyful life.

    A good Blog. I absolutely agree whole heartedly. You have to share with others. Sometimes they are afraid also and don't realize that they are not alone.
