A Day Off!

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

I have my first day off in 9 days. I was able to sleep in a little more than I have been (but that's not saying much!). Now to catch up on some of the things I have been putting off. I have one doctor appointment today. I've done some laundry and caught up on my ironing. Now: what to do next? So much to do...so little time. But, if I don't have a job by next week, I will have plenty of time and not much to do. Life doesn't seem to be in balance much lately!

    Enjoy your day and work at getting the important things done. Relax a little and enjoy. Try not to worry about next week or the week after worry about today.

Long and Busy Day

Monday, January 17, 2011

Today was my third day in a row working at the North American International Auto Show. The first two days were rather slow, and I expected it to be the same today. Boy, was I wrong! We were busy from the very beginning and it didn't really let up much. I was kinda proud of myself for collecting all that money and having it $2 off to the good. (I will shoot for a right on the money on Friday, though!) Although I am sore and tired, I really enjoyed working with the public again and getting the chance to people-watch. I know I will enjoy tomorrow off even more, though, at this point. But I will be rested and ready to go back Friday.

Tired and Sore

Sunday, January 16, 2011

Well, this was my 7th day of work - the last two days being very long. My muscles are all tense for some reason and I can't wait to go to bed. Just have to do dishes and wait for the laundry to finish.

My Negative Self-Talk is Kicking In

Friday, January 14, 2011

I have a tendency to have negetive self-talk. With this being the last day of my temporary job, I realized this morning that I have fallen back into that habit. I have been trying to network and applying to many jobs posted on line. But I know that I have to change the negativity. It will show in any interviews I may be able to get and will hurt my chances of getting a job. It will also affect my eating, sleeping and exercising habits. I've worked so hard to get where I am that I don't want any setbacks. So...positive thinking: start kicking it.

    I know how hard it is to try to avoid negative self-talk when everything is piling up.... I usually make the mistake of trying to control my weight when everything else is spiraling out of controll... and you'll notice I haven't been able to do a good job of that either. I've been out of jobs so often and I always find it hard to get a job, despite the good skills, good education and the fact that I am a hard worker.. There must be something "je ne sais quoi" that I really don't know.... but ... OOops, was going to delve into some negative self-talk, (or did I already?)

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I can commiserate with all you're going through... It takes a brave woman to undergo all you're trying to accomplish and I wish you success....

    It really is amazing what a difference your state of mind can make. thinking negatively just doesn't do anyone any favors, but sometimes you just can't seem to avoid it. The hardest part is that once you get into that mode of thinking negatively, it's hard to snap back out of it. Good for you that you've been able to recognize this problem. Good luck overcoming it! You can do it!!!

    You are doing great - you're recognizing the negativity. Now make the choice to only let the positive words come out of your mouth! You CAN do this!

    Think about or write down everything that is good and commendable about you. Then focus on those things each and every day until there's no room for that negative talk. You are worth it!

    Focus on your successes. If you overcome adversity before, you'll do it again, and again, and again. Failures are only opportunities to dust off and try again.

Keep it up, you can do it!

Job-Hunting

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Job hunting is a full time job. It's so hard to not get discouraged when you don't even get an interview.

    The one time I did really consider job-hunting a full time job, I mean went out everyday or started applying on-line every day just like I was going to work, it did work... But, in this depressed economy, it's gotta be hard. I was laid off last year and then hired back.... but it was an absolutely, horrific month..... This may be the time to really lean on your friends.... Good Luck!

    You CAN do it. Don't talk yourself into being discouraged. You've got more current work experience as a result of this last job - get out there and sell what you can do for a potential employer!
