A beautiful journey
Friday, March 29, 2019
Have you ever had one of those bosses that made it hard for and retaliated against employees they did not like or told the truth against them? I had one of those bosses and watched her carry out her evil deeds for years with management turning a blind eye, losing many good people. They felt they were untouchable because over the years they were shown they were and became even worse. Having enough of being belittled and bullied for doing a job she taught me - obviously too well - four years ago I changed departments. Monday I was able to watch Karma in action as she was finally fired from her 26-year reign of terror and escorted off the property. I was happier than I probably should have been but moreover felt vindicated.
I was offered a position in my old department by the new manager on Tuesday. The pay is basically the same but has a big schedule change, so I weighed the pros and cons. Pro; I would be back at a job that I was very good at and liked. Con; I would lose my four 10-hour days and three-day weekends and have different days off losing weekly sleepovers with my precious granddaughter. I couldn't take little trips to see my cousin still have a day to 'recover'. I would lose a job and coworkers that I have come to love.
It made me look in the mirror and come to the conclusion that even though I struggle with this weight and life's problems, I love my life the way it is!!
I cried as I realized this. It took a silly job offer to make me see I love the life I am living right now. How great is that?!!!!!
