Summer work

Monday, August 12, 2013

This summer has been so crazy weather wise. I deeply empathize there's so many hardships by those effected, bless you all.

I work in an HVAC (heating and a/c) industry. Whenever there are units that break down or are destroyed, part of my job is to make sure they are replaced, logistically not by sales. I'm by no means complaining, I love what I do being able to help people. I'm very grateful for my job, and proud of the work we do locally and internationally.

Working 6 days a week 12 hr days since May + the hr drive each way has left me tired.
The Sunday I've had off seems to fly by, trying to fit everything into one day is interesting we'll say. I'm not making excuses, because I've found once I keep moving I'm ok, if I sit down when I get home forget it, I'm done for the night.
So I try to work in the yard for 2-4 hrs after that most nights once I get home is all good, but then it's 9 p.m. and I have to be up again at 3 a.m. That's when I can come straight home and not chase across town for a family member.

It is stressful, I've had family problems too. Kids with health issues, divorces, one grand child being molested (can't talk about that too much still in court) family with mental breakdowns on suicide watches and etc... I'm sure everyone has problems thanks for listening to me blab on about mine.

I'm sorry you haven't heard too much from me, I've been thinking about you all a lot and you are in my prayers with your strife's and struggles, I do miss my Spark Friends very much. I'm taking this week off, I told my boss I needed it for mental health reasons. So, I might be pestering you all this week...beware...giggle.
if you take time to read this, thank-you. if not, I understand you're probably busy too but it's making me feel a little better to type it out anyway.

Bright Blessings to all, Lisa

    WOW, 6 -12 hour days. YUK, that is not right. You do need to take a break. Seems like if you did have time for yourself that the family problems would sink in though and take over. I know it would me. The biggest thing I can say to you is go inside yourself like I did and meditate. Ask for help, ask for answers. That is where you will find it. That is where your God space is and even if it is for 10 minutes, it will help you find your center. I feel for you, those are way too many hours for anyone. Give your family problems to the angels, let them take some of the load off of you.

    They are not allowed to help unless you ask them for it. Bless you my friend, trust that the answers are inside you. I kept looking to the outside for comfort, acceptance, peace and once I went inside, the whole outside changed in a matter of minutes.

    I wish you love, light, peace and all things good!!

    It sounds like you really need a break- you have been working like crazy and then all of the added stresses- taking time to take care of yourself is important. I hope you get some good relaxation and re-charging!

    Lisa, my friend...
    You are in my heart and in my prayers. Your strength to endure is certainly astounding. I hope that with this week's break from your job that things in all areas of your life start to resolve themselves in a peaceful way.
    With light and love for you...

    A mental health break is mandatory with some jobs! It's a legitimate reason to take some time and get rested!

    You have had a lot on your plate! Take a breath, kick back with some awesome horror movies!

    Wow, I don't see how you do it. It takes a very strong person to do what you do and going through what you're going through. Be proud of yourself by keeping your sanity.

    Sending healthy mojo your way to get you through.....
