Jobless Again

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

I got a phone call this morning from the employment agency. The company I was working for has "caught up with their work and have ended the contract with me". I knew the job wasn't right for me. I knew the girl I worked under didn't really care for me and how I did the work. I suspected something would be done about it last week. I just didn't expect it so soon.

I won't complain or whine. With my ADD, I know a job where I do one thing all day is not for me. I wasn't happy there anyway. I will just get busier and hunt harder for another job. I've already made some phone calls to employment agencies that I'm registered with. I will get on the internet and hit all the job listing sites. That's all I can do right now.

    At least you recognize that this wasn't the job for you, but still the rejection never feels good. I will pray for good fortune to come your way... you deserve it....

New Week - New Beginning

Monday, March 07, 2011

I had a relaxing weekend. I got to spend a bit of time with family and friends. This always seems to calm me down. I can then adjust my attitude a little and start fresh on Monday with high hopes of staying positive and motivated. I know this is a practice that I am getting better at, but I still need a lot of improvement. I am promising myself right now that I will get back into the habit of journaling more and reading more motivational articles. I'm hoping this will get me back on track of being "centered" and more positive. I really don't like myself much when I know I have a negative attitude and outlook on life.

    I hear you, but it's easy to get depressed when things are not going right in your life, no matter how much you want them to or work at them too... discouraging....
Hope you have a better week... things have got to turn around soon, don't they?

    Yes it's like a vicious circle: you feel down and you don't like yourself like that so you feel worse. All too common.
We have to keep trying to break that cycle by innovating and coming out of that place be it leaving the house, seeing people, reading or posting. It always makes it better.

    I wish you peace and happiness emoticon for the upcoming week ahead. I'm with you. I struggle with this same kind of thing. Stress can do it, I think. that's why I blog here on SP. It helps me realease it all, kind of like journaling. I use the journal here too when I really have to go off and get something off my chest. I don't know if it really makes me feel better about things but it's great to vent, and I feel validated. Anyway, do have a good Monday, and remember, don't sweat the small stuff, and be positive!

Michigan Weather

Sunday, March 06, 2011

Yesterday, I woke up to fairly mild temperature and rain. As the day progressed, it got colder and went from rain to sleet to about 2" of snow. I was really tired all day.

This morning, I woke up to sunshine and slushy roads. By the time church ended, the roads were fine. The sun is still shining and I seem to have much more energy. What a difference a day and the sun makes!

I realize that March in Michigan can be a roller coaster of weather, but I sure do love the sunshiny days! And I hold onto the fact that each day will be getting a little better weather-wise. I know I've been used to Alabama weather in March. I guess I'm just doing a little bit of wishing for the best of both worlds.

Weekends are So Very Needed

Saturday, March 05, 2011

I feel so much better mentally and physically on the weekends. This tells me that I am allowing too much stress to come into my life during the week. I'm not dealing with this stress correctly because I feel it WAY too much. Time to go over my stress articles and start using the correct techniques to combat it! And I'm glad I have time allotted this morning to internet job hunt. I know a new job will take much of that stress away. Sometimes a person and a particular job just don't go well together!

    Patty are you doing some exercise for stress management, I find that if I don't my mental heath deteriorates dramatically.

Overslept to start my Day

Friday, March 04, 2011

I overslept this morning. It rained/sleeted just before I left for work and left icy patches on the roads everywhere. Trying to avoid an accident, I started sliding and ended up heading toward a parking lot where a mail box knocked out a small part of my bottom grill. But I did make it to work on time. Many at my work didn't and there were a lot of accidents all over the place.

The girl I work under pointed out to me that I shouldn't cut off a major crinkle on the papers I get ready for her to scan. This came the day after she told me she couldn't have ANY crinkles in the paper. Can't make her happy - don't know that I can. So, I just stayed quiet and out of everyone's way and took my good old time going through the folders today. Not much else to do. I am trying my best to find another job as I realize this job and I were not meant to be together.

My back is a little sore tonight from being so tense today. I think a long, hot bubble bath is in order along with an early bed time. Tomorrow is another day.
