In a rut

Monday, August 30, 2010

Today was a very typical Monday. Welcome TOM (blah) and work was just crappy for lack of better words. To quickly vent my frustrations- our fire alarm panel was out of whack, so there was a lovely BEEEEEPPPPP the first 45 minutes of my morning in my office. I have been doing the same job for over ten years- can we say burnt out?! I find myself being angry at work, and looking for a butter knife to cut all the tension that is in the air. Frustrated is beyond words with how I am feeling today. I am sure a lot of it is my hormones, but when is enough already? Changing jobs tends to freak me out- totally the comfort factor- yet my sanity is slowly waning. Sigh!

I think I will go to bed now. My goal is to wake up tomorrow with a more positive attitude- quitting is not an option at the moment. Change is never easy, yet the more and more I get frustrated, the better it seems. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better attitude day for me.

    I feel that way a lot.
Whenever I do though, I try and look at life in a more positive way and do exercises of gratitude.

So....think of 5 good things everyday and write them down.
Also, think of 1 thing that you are grateful for everyday and write that down. Let those two exericses ruminate in your mind throughout the day - and I swear it helps change your mindset and that blah feeling.

Good luck!

  I hope tomorrow is a better day for you! I absolutely know what it feels like to be in that rut, I've only been at mine for four years but it feels like I should be moving on...yet I'm comfortable and its hard to break out of the routine.

Tomorrow is another day, I hope its a positive one :)
