Needing to Improve Myself

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

After taking so many pre-employment tests and having so many phone interviews, I know I need to keep improving my skills. I need to communicate better still. I need to brush up on some computer skills. I need a shot of marketability and a shot of self-worth. Now to go seek and I shall find....

    Patty YOU CAN DO IT. You saw and recognized the need, you are a success not a failure. You are the top and not the bottom, you are going to achieve what you work at and believe God to do what you can't do.

Time to be More Proactive

Tuesday, May 03, 2011

It's time to do some thinking and planning on my part to make my life more interesting and fulfilling and less depressing. I'm starting to get in a rut and want to get out of it before I get stuck. I hate calling in the troops to help me get out when I know I have the ability to do it myself.

So, I'm going to read my SP notebook and some motivational articles. Then, I'm going to plan what I'm going to do each day to improve not only myself, but those people and places around me. It may take me a couple days to get a definitive plan, but I'll get there.

    I need to take your advice... I've let myself get down in the dumps again too. Getting a lay-off notice pkg. in the mail yesterday didn't help. Then the superintendent sent an email, apologizing for all the probationary teachers getting the lay-off notice, it was their mistake... doesn't help you feel much better. They don't know who or how many or when they can even let us know, but there will be lots!!! Hard to live with that over your head....How's your job situation going?

Another Week Begins

Monday, May 02, 2011

It's the start of another week. I have high hopes for good things to happen this week. At least, I want to feel like I have accomplished something. I believe I will succeed.

The weather forecasters are predicting rain for northern Alabama. This is the only thing that I am concerned with this morning. My daughter is still without power and sitting in a relatively new beautiful house with tarp on the roof where the shingles have come off. A hard rain will only cause more damage. I'm saying extra prayers for her.

Emotions are like the Weather

Sunday, May 01, 2011

The day started and will end with rain. So, it's just a cloudy, dreary, boring day. My emotions seem to be running with the weather: I'm worrying about a few things today that I really don't have much control over. I am working on getting out of that mood: a nice long walk may do the trick.

A Different Kind of Day For Me

Saturday, April 30, 2011

I actually got about nine hours of sleep last night. Woo hoo! I can't remember the last time I've done that. I don't really have a long list of things that must be done today either. So, I get to play the day by ear and will maybe just be lazy and enjoy the day. Another woo hoo!
